Both has lots of potential, but only one had NHL speed.
You are severely under-rating Dickinson's skating ability if you think he has slow feet. The guy has NHL capable skating. I'm fine for taking Poirier over Dickinson, I won't argue that point, that's a matter of taste but to discount Dickinson based on his foot speed would be silly, since it's actually very good. He's not as fast in a straight line as Poirier but look at what Grant just said, there's probably no one in the draft faster than Poirier straight ahead.
