In terms of "smooth" fast skater, I would have to say Hedican or S. Niedermayer. They have a Coffey-esque stride which looks effortless and is beautiful to watch.

A guy like Kapanen is a choppy fast skater, but that gets the job done too. Just maybe not as pleasing to the eye to watch.

I echo the sentiments that puck handling, control, and general ability to carry the puck without slowing down is a very important factor.
