That seriously kills a players development.
KV seems like a real top heavy guy. He's the anti-Crosby, build-wise.

Not surprising that his skating is one of his weaker points.

Okay, I've watched that highlight video several times and I'm on board with KV. I still think he has a very very big hill to climb to make it to the NHL, but I'd love to have a player with his skill set on the team. 4th line finesse/fighter hybrid with net front presence on the 1st PP unit. He'd look real good quietly drifting back into the slot and burying some one-timers from Crosby.
