Not true. A few of us have seen him in the AHL and all of us should have seen him last preseason when he played versus the Flames and a relatively complete Edmonton lineup. I also went to a training camp session which included all of our NHL defensemen as well as Corrado. IMO, his skating stood out in those skating drills, i posted about it back then as well.
I would feel comfortable in saying Corrado is a better skater than Ballard, but that's not saying Ballard is chopped liver or that his skating is poor. Don't think anyone said he is an outright poor skater. But as i said, i think Corrado's pivots and transitions are flawless, can turn on a dime at high speed.
McEneny picks up a PP assist. Moves him to 36th in OHL defensmen scoring
