I guess I'm different from you all and too bad this will be my own viewing of Klimchuk:

To me, he didn't have GREAT speed, or was a GREAT puckhandler, or elusive. He was just above-average in all those departments IMO

What he WAS great was his edgework, his acceleration, and his hockey sense. All three of these things allows him to sneak into goal-scoring areas in the offensive zone. His feet keeps moving and he just exploits defenseman that aren't paying their full attention on Klimchuk.

This makes him a dangerous player if paired with a good playmaker.
