Yes, his skating is weak...but there is PLENTY of time for him to improve on an NHL strength and conditioning regimen, and also plenty of time to develop in the AHL when the Wings bring him over. Jiri Hudler still is not a speed demon, but I watched him his first 2 years in Grand Rapids, and his skating has improved unbelievably compared to what it was when he first came here. The Wings skating coaches will improve Teemu's skating. I understand most of the bickering on here is between finns who don't like Jokerit etc. but the kid has talent and was an absolute steal in the 4th round.
He's not that slow -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xo-Qa3-rVdA ( hes the guy with golden helmet, lol ).
