The players on both ends of the ice weren't up to their normal speed and his skating wasn't keeping up very well at this pace.

It was only his first game though, so we should give him a few games before we start judging him overall. This game I'd say was very average.
I didnt think he was slow at all. The only one that really looked slow for us was Franson. I think Kostka's skating was on par with Gunnar or maybe a little below that. Somewhere between Gunnar and Komi which I would say is about average.
