It's not like he was THAT much of a reach where he was drafted either, just some sexier names on the board.
His skating issues are overblown anyways. He's a decent skater. He's just not an explosive skater. Once he's going, he looks fine, and he reads the game well enough that he doesn't get himself caught flat footed. He actually wasn't a reach at all. He would have been a good pick normally, but Jenner (who I wanted, and couldn't believe was available), Gibson, and Saad were still on the board
