He was, but most veterans didn't take part in that competition I think.

DD's skating has improved, like most smaller players he has balance and good at changing directions quickly, but he doesn't have the explosiveness most very small players who make it have, like Gionta and St. Louis.

From what I can tell I don't see the same breakaway speed that Plekanec, Gomez, Eller have, but Desharnais has agility.
