How did I know you'd be the first to speak up?

My point is, Maroon's skating is not elite, or great, or good, by any means compared to the NHL. That said, there are plenty of players already in the NHL that get by with just as much skating ability. Those players manage to succeed in specific roles. I assume they plan on using Maroon where he will succeed; in front of the net, much like Knuble.

No.
