However, in the playoffs he was a completely different player, but six games is the definition of a small sample size.
I disagree entirely with him being the best skater in the draft. I don't even think he's the best draft eligible skater in the OHL, that title belongs to Baptiste.
Baptiste? Do you mean better skater in terms of straight-ahead speed? Didn't see it as much although he looks very smooth.
Toclhinsky has that quickness in starts and stops and lateral agility as well as speed. Elite skater, makes up for the fact he's 5'9?
I'd take him late third unless we get a 4th-5th.
