I'd say speed and like Noir alluded to the art of selling your fake. Being a proficient stickhandler of course is crucial, but to be effective in a game you must be able to execute at full speed. A good drill would be to simply line up some cones close together and practice weaving through them at full speed while stickhandling with the puck..
As for selling a fake, being able to deceive opponents with your head and body is a must. If you can sell a good fake with the head and make a quick cut you'll make your opponent look flatfooted. Fedorov used to be very good with selling the fake with his head and Datsyuk is as well
