I think it's blown way out of proportion. Here's some info from predraft scouting reports.
His skating earns divided opinions, with one scout calling it a positive, and another saying his first steps can be a tad sluggish. - Corey Pronman
Wide skating stance helps him maintain balance and uses edges well to maximize glide. - Red Line Report
He’s a smooth skater but takes a bit of time to get up to top speed.
