He has made quie a name for himself. He's kind of like Pedroia on skates; undersized but skilled with a boatload of heart and determination and not a single ounce of quit.
As far as the (A) though, I think he's got a ways to go to get there, he's started out well, but with people like: Bergy, Krejci, Chara, Thomas, Horton, Seidenberg...he's got a ways to go before I start considering giving tht designation to such a young guy.
That being said, he's one of my favorites on the team. I love the way he plays. Right on the edge, often over, a rat, and in your face. I don't mind someone being a rat when they don't run and hide when called on it. He clotheslined one guy, dumped Danielle Sedin, and dropped his gloves for the 3rd...my favorite play of the whole Finals.
