I would assume that most players trying out at the NHL level move FAIRLY well. Most also come into camp in their best shape, I would assume.

He is saying Orr is in the best shape of his career and has improved his skating, which was what they told him he had to do if he wanted to make the team. As far as coach speak goes this is pretty straightforward.
