Craig Button mention that he was an elite level skater a couple months ago I believe.

I haven't seen him enough to form my own opinion though.
I never said he wasn't explosive. He is. In game one of the playoffs he was in a race for the puck with Duncan Siemens and they essentially tied the race for the puck. Not too bad for a guy that's about 5'11, compared to an elite skater with long legs like a 6'4 Duncan Siemens.

He's just got an odd stride. It's choppy and will need to be refined a bit to get to that next level as a pro, if you ask me.
