Yea you can probably improve speed by 5-10% through training, and you can probably improve hockey IQ 5-10% through teaching;

But it doesnt matter how much training you or I do, we will never be able to skate as fast as Jack Skille, and we will never know more about the game than Steve Yzerman.

So yes you can improve it slightly, but its far more of a genetic thing than you are claiming.
