No doubt! I just hate how the armchair GM's dismiss talent because of skating
. Good skating is a lot more involved than just speed. Agility, I say, is more important. (think of going to the net hard and being able to dangle and deke, rather than to go Grabner and reduce your chances every inch forward)
I don't worry about Strome's wheels, just his size and ability to take a hit in the bigs.
