Possible that - in addition to picking his spots - Nels Stewart was like other big sized skaters who looked slower than they were?

Beliveau has often been likened to the late Nels Stewart.
Toe Blake was asked if Stewart was a slow skater, as has been alleged.
"I've heard that and it wasn't true," he said. "You couldn't catch him from behind. He didn't look to be going fast because he took those long strides. Beliveau is like that, too."
