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
This excites me greatly. Looking forward to seeing him in person next week.
I'm gonna fanboy out hard and embarrass myself.
