I mean offensively he has been fantastic, and a little better skating would go a long long way. Would help him defensively as well.
If you ask a few Canucks fans that have watched him this year too, he has gotten faster. He works on things every off season at the Gary Roberts training facility. I have noticed a difference from last season to this one. At some point obviously he won't get any faster. But I think he has a little more to develop there. I hope.
