Naruto needs base fights like there is no freaking tomorrow.
He definitely needs some fights under his belt. However, if there were another time skip, I would at least like to see him return with more considerable power. Especially being as when he returned at the beginning of p2, he had practically no growth at all as a ninja vs. p1.
