Dude....Gretzky and Kopitar are very bad point of reference in speaking of Cammie....
We can at least definitely agree on this one. I would change the bolded, though, to say that he could get to the puck faster than most. He really wasn't that fast/great of a skater (even/especially compared to his peers), but anticipation+agility=looking like he covered more ice than he actually did in Gretzky's case.
