Skinner is incredibly shifty though and transfers his weight around perfectly, it's so unique.

I think he will definitely get 9 games at the minimum.
Skinner is a little bigger and he put up 50 goals in his draft year. He probably isn't as fast as Thomas, but IMO, Skinner is a better skater. He really uses his edges well.

I think Thomas will be good, but I'm not ready to say he'll come in and have the same type of success.
