The Physical Game
Warrener likes the aggressive game. Sometimes he gets a little too rambunctious and gets out of position, but that is to be expected from a young player looking to make an impact. He's a solid hitter but doesn't make the open-ice splatters like teammate Ed Jovanovski. Warrener is not a self-starter. He needs someone to stay on him about his conditioning and his effort.
When Warrener is paired with a stay-at-home type like Paul Laus, he gets more involved in the attack. He can be the defensive partner, too, if he is teamed with a more offensive defenseman.
Warrener took a step backwards last season and needs to regain some lost confidence. He should be part of the Panthers' top four for a long time to come. His point totals won't be dazzling, but he can net 20 points.
