You're putting too much emphasis on speed and power though. RNH's stride and motion were phenomenal last year and he could turn opposing players inside out in a very small space with his skating. I've only seen him make those types of moves on maybe a couple of occasions this year - he did it once in the last game when the Oilers were on the powerplay.
