He put up some very impressive numbers in his rookie year, but had some issues with attitude, defence and playing a team game.
This last season his performance declined while his issues got worse, and he gets rewarded with a contract that will pay him more than Tavares!? Mind-boggling.
This will be like the JVR contract, only worse IMO.
I agree. Sure, Skinner is a good hockey player. HeckA, after his UFA years starts 5+ might no be far off.
But he is undoubedtly overrated. Definitely in the Tyler Myers mode. Just not that talented, and actually pretty flawed in some areas.
