About Purinton...

he dramatically improved his skating to the point where he was a fringe, and sometimes good, NHL player. He previously was an ECHL player. Eric Cairns too was a horrible skater and worked his butt off to become a regular NHL player. Pavel Brendl was one of the worst skaters I've ever seen (next to Burke Henry I guess), and Pavel eventually played in a fair amoung of NHL games. If the kid's got other tools and all that's missing is skating, it could turn out to be a good pick (as long as he is willing to work).
