changing speeds for a forward is the best way to beat a defencemen... hence gap control being important, active stick and taking the space where the body can go...
most skaters will start the glide once you match speeds, to figure what room they have to make their next move...
the problem with just eye contact or puck contact is getting beat and being on your heels... as well as staying heads up to look for the passing lane you can block with your stick
if a forward only has speed and no hands or skating dextery, he'll always try to beat you on the outside or stop somewhere before the hashmarks to fire it or pass
