I'm not saying he don't skate well...I love his incredible balance.

But his top speed + acceleration is not good enough to be called ''one of the best skater in the league''.

And i don't agree when you say that he have a good defensive game. He's often the first guy who quit the defensive zone...
Well besides me, the hockey news has him as the Slovaks best skater, which would rank him ahead of Gaborik, Palffy, Hossa and Demitra. I don't agree that he is a better skater than Gaborik, but to be even considered among those players proves that he is a very good skater. I don't know about the others, but I haven't seen 50 skaters that are faster than Zednik.

His defensive game is fine. He's not exceptional, but he doesn't often get way out of position, and he has played on the penalty kill before as well.
