He wouldnt have been a Badger if his skating was THAT bad.
Remember Big John Mitchell, he of cement feet and hands? Mersch reminds me of Mitchell except he has better upside than Big John, and is a better skater. I doubt Mersch turns out like Backes, but then all of us are STILL scratching our heads that Davis Drewiske is an NHL regular.
Mersch will be a good power forward at the college level, I could see him being a 20G 20A guy by his junior year.
