Compare the differences in "efficiency" or "economy" of stride. Subban has a fairly long, high kick to his stride, and looks like he starts off pounding each stride into the ice sometimes with how high he pulls his knees up in front of him, too. Emelin, imo, looks like he has a more fluid stride that keeps his edges on the ice longer (ironically, like figure skating, lol), looks like it uses less energy, but doesn't move him as quickly - either at top speed or when changing direction.
