Griffin's skating was better than Musil's regardless, and I definitely think he has a better East-West toolkit, but all that considered I can't see Griffin growing much bigger throughout the season.
And if he does, he'll be a 6'5+ 210+ defender with an offensive toolkit.
Think many teams will care that he lost a step while growing?
Yes. It could drop him from top 5 to top 15-20 if the concerns about his skating are actually legit and he doesn't show solid improvement from what I've seen early this year.
