Exactly. Like I mentioned earlier, the team might be high on him but as of now he's just not a good enough skater to be a regular NHL player. He's too slow to get in on the forecheck, and lacks the agility to line up hits on the quicker NHL players. A one year deal simply means they're looking for a major improvement this year or they're likely to cut him loose.

I'd like to see the kid succeed. We could use a guy like him in the lineup on a regular basis. However, he really needs to take his skating to another level to hope to make it as a NHL regular.
