Skating will never be his strength and it won't need to be but he will need to improve to be a top 6 NHL option at least IMO.
I do agree with that. I may have jumped the gun on your previous post. It just seems like the consensus here is that he is a ****** skater, and that's not the case. He does need work, but his skating is not nearly as bad as a lot her perceive it to be.

To be honest, I'm just glad he's proving a lot of people on this board wrong, even if he's not there yet. I've been lingering around this site for a year or so and didn't decide to join until this lockout got to me and a lot of people had zero confidence in him. He's my favorite prospect (even above the beloved Joe Morrow). You can still see the hindsight 20/20 **** with some posters. WE SHOULD HAVE PICKED KUZYYYYYYYY AHHHH
