I guess everybody CAN always be better...............BUT, every where Nash has played the knock has always been his skating. One NHL scout put it best, "Yes his skating is goofy, and may not look like he's getting anywhere, but he never seems to get caught from behind". And it's true. All through Junior, I watched and watched, and he never got caught from behind.
