although I have climbed there - I've spent plenty of time in CO mostly down in Salida/Chaffee County or in Durango-Ouray-Silverton/San Juans. Those are trips down from Jackson or from here. There's no question about his skill set - I saw it in Hockey East and against us in the regional this year. I just think it's best to keep the meter turned down as he fits in and the NHLers get a feel for him. He really never got hit in NCAA - as we know, he will playing that position in the NHL. Smaller D take awhile to get used to what can happen to them in the corners. My guess is that he'll encounter more of that against SJS.
