Rangers are shaping up to be one of the best skating teams in the league in a couple seasons based on the skating ability of their pool of prospects... Sure not all these guys will be on the roster but quite a few should:

-Kreider / Hagelin / Grachev / Thomas / and now this guy we've just traded for you guys are saying is a good skater.

Not sure about Horak's skating ability.

It would be a huge asset to have a team full of good skaters who have excellent conditioning due to Tortorella's strict standards. Perhaps we're already seeing some of the benefits of our team's conditioning and our current skaters evident from the team's ability to compete in 3rd periods this year (undefeated when leading going into the 3rd and a team that staged quite a few 3rd period comebacks). Skating & conditioning is definitely a huge asset in the playoffs as some other teams begin to wear down.
