Are you getting fixated on the word talent? That's something that means different things in different contexts. Here it refered to ability to drive the play and get positive results (more goals for than against).

Skinner came into the league with plenty of fancy moves, boatloads of potential and the ability to score. But when they were on the same team in Skinner's rookie year Cole was a better two-way even strength player because he could both score and defend. Which is why played against the opponent's strength and the other played against opponents weakness. Its just sensible coaching.
