The way he thinks on the ice, it is clear that he is still learning. Remember how DZ looked in his sophomore year on defense? You could tell he is thinking instead of doing things instinctively, which slows you down by a split second. But that wouldve been gone by now had he not been out until January.

His bigger issue is balance. I think that could be fixed in a few weeks of hardcore skating lessons. But since he cant take time off now to go learn to skate, it will need to wait intil the summer. If he goes to Barbara Underhill or a similar coach over the summer, he will be in the NHL to start the next season.
