I agree that skating is an important factor but what you fail to understand is that there's a lot more to effective skating than acceleration. You act like it's the only thing that matters.

Gaudreau's agility is top notch, which makes him a very good skater. Agility is probably more important than acceleration for a guy like Gaudreau because he quickly uses it to find the empty space and thus is very hard to catch. Quick lateral movement is a lot better than straight line movement because it's shifty and unpredictable.

In a lot of ways, important ways, Gaudreau is actually a better skater than Teravainen. He's like a spider monkey that can jump up a tree at any time and always gets outta the way. Lions can't do **** about that.[/

Gaudreau remiss me a lot of Brunette- which is why I dislike his skating so much.
Yeah. Watching TT he reminds me alot of Rico Fata. All flash no dash.
