This is and always has been the problem with large players in the nhl. The inability to activate their glutes and create hip extension during a stride.

this picture shows an athlete that is capable of hip extension....this is found in the most elite athletes.
But that's not a big problem considering he's one of the best skating defensemen in the draft.

With that said the only two d-men in this draft I take over Genral Zad is Jones and Nurse.
