Does he get to the right spot on the ice in good time? Can a medium speed skater stay up every hit and go into traffic well? Does Dorothy Hamill have a wicked blast from the slot? I hate the skating is paramount nonsense.

Speed is an asset. So is positioning, release, shot selection and eye for passing. So, unfortunately, is strength on one's skates. So he has no holes yet can't skate faster than Messier or Coffey? Hmm....?
