There is something around Morin that I cannot put my finger on and I don't think its his skating.

last year he was rated as the #15 overall skater by the Red Line Report and yet he slipped to the 45th pick.

I've never seen him play but based on some youtube clips he comes across as one with a "long" shot. he appears deadly accurate but seems to need a long windup with his wrister. Will he be afforded that kind of time in the big leagues?

However, with all this said (slow skater, slow release) he's putting up big numbers and has been a winner on the international stage. maybe he just has that x-factor to allow him to succeed despite limitations in his gifts?
