a) I find skating to be the single most overrated attribute (other than bloodlines, but that shouldn't even count, IMO). Plenty of players have become great without great skating and plenty of great skating players do nothing. It's not the end all to be all like some make it out to be.
b) Dano's skating is underrated. He does not possess a great top gear and will never blow anybody away with his speed. However he is an elusive player, that turns really well. He can buy time for himself with that elusiveness to create plays, which he does very well since he sees the ice really well. It's not like he is slow as molasses either.
