Other older players who don't skate that well might amass impressive numbers (like Dea, say), but the skating is such a big factor in how they progress at the next levels...

Dea is a no-draft to me. No NHL potential at all IMO. He's soft, he's small but he's a good skater. He has talent, but that won't translate to the pros.
Andrighetto though is not scared of traffic, and as you pointed out he's a very fast skater. He's making Dea look good this year. Better hands of the two, and a much better shot.
Dea is in the same category of the Massť, Riendeau and Maillet.
