It's not anything that's going to particularly stand out in the way that it does for a Shea Weber or Drew Doughty. No, Skjei would not have the best shot on our team. That's absurd.
I disagree. For a defenseman, his shot is a plus tool. Yeah, it's not on par with Weber or Chara, but those guys have an elite tool (or plus-plus, if we're using baseball scouting terms).

It wouldn't be the best on the team, I agree. It might be the best amongst our defenseman though.


It's just pain.
