I don't like those suggestions. He has a low center of gravity, so his skating doesn't "look right" ... he gets where he needs to go just fine.

One guy I always like to waive in people's faces is Emerson Etem, the Anaheim Ducks first rounder. Everyone mentioned his awful skating heading into the draft ... last year with Medicine Hat, he scored 61 goals in 65 games, mostly because of his BLAZING SPEED!

Just because they skate "oddly", doesn't mean they are slow ... too many scouts weigh too heavily on that.

I'll write up any other player in the system if requested. Otherwise, enjoy the reads!
