Most guys just drafted can't keep up with the NHLs tempo. Even guys who are good skaters when they're drafted often have to continue improving their skating so that they're on a NHL level.
"good skater" when applied to recently drafted players usually just means "good skater compared to their age group", not compared to NHL players
