Jerome's not a skill player, he's a shooter, so is Cammy. Olli is so, so... and Tanguay had a drop off from an amazing S.O last season.

When I think of pure skill, guys who should be able to do some neat things with a puck and beat a goalie 1 on 1, it's the three I named there. Backlund hasn't shown it, but there were flashes where he was trying to make a move instead of a wrister too tight in (see Iginla S.O attempts).

Of course Detroit is amazing, what's the running theme here? Skill.
Dats + Zett is 1-2 punch anyone would want going into a best of three.
I beg to differ. I understand what you mean by "skill." Tanguay has the most skill of any player we can ice including the guys you mentioned. Stempniak has more skill than Backlund.
