I have no idea why Craig Patrick took him in the first round. You never take a player in the first round who has never produced ever.
I wouldn't say Letang is an extremely fast skater, but I'd say he's an incredibly smooth skater. More than that, Letang combines agility with puckhandling skill. Lots of guys like Hagelin can fly down the ice, but fewer can fly down the ice while carrying a puck.

And yeah, I forgot about Koltsov. He could skate like the wind but he makes Grabner look like Denis Savard with the puck.
