Yep, his skating and his "rover" style reminds me of when McDonagh rushes the puck and then catches the play coming coming on the back-check before it gets to the red-line. His skating is world-class.
McDonagh, Hagelin, Fast, Skjei, Nieves, Kreider, Nash, Gaborik, Staal, Callahan. I think it is obvious what direction they want to go in as an organization.
