Take a look at this to see just how elite Rielly's overall skating ability is. BTW he's #44


Murray has an amazing skating ability, but he rarely uses that skating ability to be as deceptive as Rielly on the rush. He usually uses that specialty for defence. And in terms of skating ability Murphy, I'd say Murphy is elite as well.
I can see the same watching Cam Fowler, only he looks even more effortless while doing it. What's the difference?
