It's even more than that. Being able to skate FAST doesn't even make you a GOOD skater. That kid in the video is truly not a good skater. If he came down to the pick up group I play with, people would be laughing because all of us have played college/junior/etc. Speed doesn't even mean you have good edge work, balance, agility, etc. Heck, skating fast doesn't even mean you can stop and start explosively/consistently.
