Stanton is so steady defensively he's filled the vacancy of Salo back there.
Not sure if he can shoot the puck with power . But agree he is excellent defensively.
He hasn't come close to showing a Salo shot but he has shown he will drop the gloves. Far too early to say if he will bring any offence to his game though. His job is to play bottom pairing minutes, not get scored upon and play a strong defensive game. As he solidifies those parts of his game we will see, over time, if he can bring the offence. He has jumped in a number of times and looks like he has a head for the game. But like Tanev his job isn't so much to produce points at this stage.
Sooner or later both he and Tanev will have to define their respective games.
