all i've seen about him suggests that he isn't a particularly good skater... but he clearly has a very good shot (the highlights i've seen of the kid have shown this fact off). if he can translate his finishing ability -- especially on the PP to the NHL -- he could be a great player for us to have... the danger, of course, with players that are subpar at skating is that they can't keep up with the game at this level. hopefully that won't be the case since we are desperate for someone who can come in and be a finisher at wing.

we have enough young players around who can take on the other jobs on the ice, but we definitely need at least one of Potulny/Ruzicka to come in and be the guy that will take a pass and put it in the net with some consistency.
