I seem to recall he was a terrific skater as a rookie...not that he wasn't a very good skater in '72 and the years following.
I was just 7 when he broke into the NHL, so my recollections are less than great and I never saw him play, in person.
I was only 10-years old when he broke into the the league in '67 so I may be embellishing my memories but my perception as a young hockey fan was that he was a fast and powerful skater when he broke in and that his skating was never quite the same after his first injury. For what it's worth.
