Speed is an asset. So is positioning, release, shot selection and eye for passing. So, unfortunately, is strength on one's skates. So he has no holes yet can't skate faster than Messier or Coffey? Hmm....?
Huh? He's got plenty of speed..... I don't see him having trouble keeping up with anyone out there. Actually, he's solid in every single area you just brought up, with his best assets being hands and hockey IQ, with his passing and board work not far behind.
