Skating is one of the most important elements of a successful NHL player, so he'll definitely need to improve before making the step to pro. Like ULF said, his skaing will determine if he'll be a top or bottom 6 player. Luckily Barb Underhill is one of the best skating coaches in the business, so he has a great chance to imorove this aspect of his game.
No it isn't -- read some scouting reports -- and watch some video. He doesn't have the greatest hands or hockey IQ but he skates very well.
