Your play is only as good as the weakest one of the aforementioned. So for example the OP said that skating/foot speed is his strength, then he is only as good as his stick handling and hockey sense which needs work.

I agree, you can be so much faster than teammates which can create you chances off the rush but if you can't delay enough with stickhandling or protecting the puck to give them time to catch up. At that point, you're pretty much in no man's land offensively if you can't do anything to counter the defense that is going to close in around you.

There is a time for a great counterattack and going all out speed against defense, and there is a time to delay and allow the play to develop.
