Quickness is relative. A lot of that comes from what is below him on the depth chart, or how the position changes via trade/FA. Rather, I'm saying for him to "secure" his NHL spot he will have to produce. St.Louis didn't secure anything with that production either.

As a shorter player, what he gives up in size will have to be made up through other tangible means. I think he'll get there, eventually.
