He is one of, if not the, most explosive skaters in the NCAA, which can at least be partially attributed to his leg strength. I am just curious what I am missing that people want to label him as weak.

He isn't a power forward, he is a playmaker that is extremely elusive. His strength is going around people, not through them. Just because he doesn't out muscle people on a consistent basis, doesn't mean he can't do it. It just means that other parts of his game are strong enough that he doesn't need to do it, at least at the college level.
I think they mean that in the pros, he would struggle without adding more strength to his core which is normal for 99% of prospects making the jump.
