When I watch him , his challenge is that first step quickness. If , when that improves his overall game will will positively be influeneced imo. From a decent/good prospect to an above average one for the NHL level.

I think Leipsic will be one of the final cuts, along with Hudon, Leivo, Siemens, Shinkaruk, Corrado, Ceci, Puempel and Percy.
- Lowry's footspeed has improved immensely since this time last year.

- What makes you think Leipsic will be a final cut? He wasn't even invited to play at the Super Series. That's pretty telling.
