Found this :

Not sure if this applies to players drafted before the CBA

He will always have to work on his foot speed and skating to remain a pro.

The Habs are acutely aware after the summer camp last year and I believe they will want Danny here training and playing in Hamilton,hands on operation.

Watching the improvements he's made since last summer,I hope warrants bringing him over.Having Pierre Allard working on his conditioning as well as their Skating coach will certainly speed up the process.

That's true but having him playing in the system and learning to adjust his skating technique,in the Habs backyard so to speak,can only be the smart move in developing good habits.Not only this but playing in our arena's his learning in all areas will come together smoothly and much quicker.He already speaks more than passable English and playing in the NHL is his life's dream,as he told us fans when he was drafted.Given the tools to work with Danny could surprise many and be ready in 2-3 yrs.just my humble opinion.

You'd think so but all I keep hearing is that a lot of Czech prospects seem to have problems with skating or speed. Just what I've heard.
There is so much talent with the Czech's,their government should be assisting the development of their youth.

It hasn't always been this way like you say,the capitalist reform hasn't taken the toll to the economy created.

Slovakia's pride for such a smaller population they insure their Child Program's are kept up with other countries with far bigger budgets.

Ditto for Walsh.

(Prepares for backlash from their fans).
I think not it seems that Bergevin's signings are being taken care of quickly and as efficiently as time permits,as in time they too will have their opportunities as pros.
