Hopefully his skating is continually improved upon, because, if it is, I have hope for him in this league.
Just came in to say the same thing. His skating has DEFINITELY improved. He was a very average skater with us last time, but now he teams to have a new gear and can get around players. No he's still not a speed demon or anything, but he's got a little more speed and I like it.
