I think for a player like Cammarata, he would be better off NOT getting picked..Let him choose where to play as a free agent after college. My guess is he will have a stellar NCAA career and will be highly sought after.

I was amazed this week with how poor of a skater Cammarata is. He has great hands and incredible hockey IQ, but, at 5'8, I don't see how he can play in the NHL unless he greatly improves his skating.

Is it safe to say that Cammarata's ceiling would be a player similar to Desharnais if he could improve his skating?

Pretty much this. Kid has great hands and great hockey sense also a terrific passer. But he is slower then slow.

When your that small you gotta be able to skate to even have a shot.

He can def play from the circles in but after that he's pretty much a none factor.

funny, i have a friend that plays in the USHL and couldnt believe taylors numbers.. he said he was one of the worst skaters on the ice every game but some people have that ability to put it in the net. Skating can be helped/manipulated quite easily nowadays, a knack for scoring isnt. I also agree he is already behind the 8 ball with his size, i dont think he can afford to be a sub par skater if he wants to play in the big leagues, im surprised it hasnt been improved much since playing college

A couple reasons Taylor put up such drastic numbers in the USHL was because he was a cherry picker and also played on an Olympic Sheet of ice in Waterloo. This gave him more space to operate in the offensive end. His skill is undeniable but I said the same things about him last year. Didnt hurt that he was on a line with Justin Kloos and Zach Stepan last year either.

He has put up insane numbers everywhere he has been so I doubt he is mooching off of anyone. The fact that he puts up such numbers, including a very good freshman season with a stacked UMinn team, only suggests how great his hockey IQ is.

But I can't get over how poor of skater he is compared to his peers. And I'm not just talking about speed. I mean everything from speed to agility to being about to make smooth crossovers.

Different players. I can't think of anyone in the NHL that he compares with... maybe Yanic Perreault from back in the day but Yanic was much bigger (at 5'11'').

he's lucky if he is 5'8'', prob more like 5'6'' or 7'', Ive seen him not have the greatest wheels, but I did see him turn on the gas back-checking once.

but i agree that he does need to improve his skating.
