Scott Niedermayer, too. And Matthieu Schneider and Brian Campbell, to some extent. The super-smooth, naturally gifted skaters.

Orlov, on the other hand, man, I don't know if he's just rusty, but I saw him take about ten strides last night to get from center ice back to faceoff circle while chasing a dumped puck. And don't get me wrong, I like the guy. I like his hitting. But maybe not a naturally gifted skater. I still have visions of him getting torched last year by CHI's Stallberg. Was not a fair race.
