About the Stone/Cowen skating issue:

Stone was projected late 1st round to mid 2nd round pick at some point during his draft year but then took an arrow to the knee... Sorry Skyrim joke... But he did have a serious knee injury and GMs just didn't want to waste a pick on him.

Same thing with Cowen. He was ranked 3rd at some point during his draft year but also got a knee injury.

Also, remember Michalek's knee injury 2 years ago and how it impacted his game even last year?

Knee injuries sometimes take more than a year to readjust. Stone will improve.
