People are exaggerating Stone's deficiencies in the skating department.

He struggles off the line (just like Silfverberg) but has average top speed (just like Silfverberg)

They are both players that need to improve there, but if they don't, they still should be quality second liners.

They are extremely smart players which minimizes their skating to an extent, but they just need that extra gear to be that 60-70 point player they have the potential to be.

I think Stone will show flashes like all young guys, but needs more time in the off-season to work with Mr Power. Hes smart enough and physically developed enough to improve on the bottom six imo, which is why I think he sticks for the rest of the year.
