For somebody who has such great playmaking instincts, he'll go long stretches without doing anything noticeable in the way of creating chances. A lot of that has to do with the fact that he doesn't move well and really needs to work on his skating. Hence my comments.
Yes, I didn't disagree with your opinion about his skating. It definitely is holding back his potential. I suspect during exit interviews " skating" was written ten times in his weakness column. I think I read he is really working on it and his conditioning.
I think the playoffs he mirrored the rest of the team. The style of play left nothing in the tank. I thought he was fine for this stage of development.
