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.

To be honest, hockey sense is much more important atribute than skating in my opinion, I actually agree with your point.
However he lacks foot speed and quickness which is much worse than lacking straight speed in my opinion.
I donīt say that he is bad player but Tatar was better player. Plus with better character.
