I just can't see him going Top 5 with that big of a flaw and I've noticed I'm not the only one (QMJHL followers as well) to have this opinion. 1st round? Sure. Granted, he still has time to improve the skating and continue to get better overall so he could get there in time but I don't see it with early projections. Wouldn't be the first time I'm wrong though.
I have been impressed with his work along the boards, nut shot aside.
I live in Halifax so I was able to see him and I agree with this completely. His skating hurts to watch, he's sluggish and slow. Once he gets the puck with space, he can make people look bad or unleash that leathal shot of his, but he has no separation speed or edge work what so ever.
