With the strides we've seen in his skating in just one year, I think he'll be fine once he's ready for the bigs. A bit more concentration on adding a few more pounds and improving his skating next summer, and he'll be fine. He's got too much compete in him to not improve his weak areas.

If not, he's always got Hartnell to look up to.

Great post. Scheifele just might end up being a truely unique player that doesn't really compare to many others. Balance might always be an issue, but things happen when he is on the ice. He has great hockey sence, good vision, good shot and he does what it takes. Thank God he is 6.3" and will probably end up well over 200 lbs. I have little doubt he will be major part of the Jets one day. Maybe it's time someone comes up with a good nickname for him?
