Definitely. Musil isn't a bad skater by any means, but he's not as mobile as Smid. I don't know how much I'd rely on him to move the puck out of the zone though. His outlet pass isn't as crisp as I'd like it to be. IMO, he'll basically be a much smarter, better skating version of what everyone was hoping Plante ideally might be able to be when we drafted him. Big, strong, reliable, and extremely good defensively.
