Emelin, imo, looks like he has a more fluid stride that keeps his edges on the ice longer, looks like it uses less energy, but doesn't move him as quickly - either at top speed or when changing direction.
Okay, so he has poor technique in his stride, In other words? Very well. But does that prevent him from being one of if not the fastest skaters on the team? Subban has flaws but why the **** are people on him abotu his skating now like Shabitue.

Subban is slightly above average on this team when it comes to speed. He's surpassed by guys like Gomez,Cole, Pacioretty, Eller and if I'm not mistaken Desharnais
come on, really? Jump off a bridge.
