It's not like they are saying Subban can't skate.
I can understand why people would disagree about Subban. From my own uniformed view, I'd describe him as one of the most mobile d in the league, but not necessarily one of the absolute top "skaters". His top speed isn't world beating, what he has in an incredible first step in almost any direction, literally able to change direction and/or accelerate in a 360 degree arc. Combine that with above-average quickness, incredible athleticism and co-ordination (especially puck control) and almost complete fearlessless and you get a guy who moves on the ice as well as anyone. But at the same time, he's not Paul Coffey out there.
