The most annoyingly frustrating thing about Wolski to me is that he has an amazing skating ability. You'd never believe it, but he can definitely move out on the ice. I remember watching him closer to the beginning of his career, when he was in Colorado, and occasionally you'd just see him go from not moving to flying down the ice in an instant. He's not as fast as Gabby, but you could argue nobody is.

But in his time with the Rangers last season, I never really saw any examples of that speed. It's not a matter of him losing it, he just literally never skates hard. It's extremely frustrating to watch, because if he made more use of his great speed, there were definitely chances last year where he could have made a breakout, or a breakaway.
