He isn't that terrible of a skater. It's his weak point, it will hold him back should he not improve, but it isn't so terrible that it is his instant downfall. I watched him play a whack of times this year, and his hands are also fairly underrated...very shifty guy when he wants to play. I'd be as worried about his disappearing act and lack of engagement in many games as I would be about his skating.

I also rather think you traded him because Chicago asked for him, but hey.
