Yes, I am telling you that Mitera will "somehow learn how to skate."

I firmly believe that your quick judgement of Mitera based on this season alone (of which he has played just 13 games and also the couple weeks that he spent in training camp) is in error. I don't think it is fair to the prospect to write him off so quickly considering both his pedigree and his injury. I can almost guarantee that Anaheim is not thinking less of him and are in it for the long haul with Mitera.

I previously gave two examples of players familiar with the Ducks organization who suffered similar traumatic knee injuries who spent almost a year before they were back in solid game condition.

But that's just my opinion. Of course.
I respect your opinion and I hope you are right, but I have a feeling Mitera will be a big disappointment. I'll give it another year before I write him off.
