People were skeptical of Perry's skating and strength issues, not whether or not his style would translate offensively. Perry always had a very high hockey IQ and would not hesistate to go to the dirty areas. Fortunately for us he improved his skating to the point that it didn't hold him back whatsoever.

With Etem, his skating ability is already top notch, it's not his physical attributes that will hold him back, it will him adapting to the NHL game and learning how to score in a league where he can't blow past every second defenseman on his way to a breakaway.
