It's not just the mobility that allows Fowler and Doughty to do things like that though, puck skills are a big part of it. Orpik doesn't rush the push much so we rarely get to see him using his skating like that. Doesn't really matter though, the point is that McIlrath has a way to go to be able to skate like Orpik.
