Yeah, that's why I separated speed and form... and why Recchi is actually on the poor skaters list. He's actually a good skater with horrible form from what looks like a bad right hip.
Ranger was a toss-up for me. He's not extremely fast and he's not really a stand out to me with his form, he's not a poor skater by any means... but look at most Russians, like Ovechkin for example, very choppy but a great skater and fast as hell. It doesn't look good but it's effective.
I prefer a skater that skates a more North American style, like Modano rather than Russian style, like Ovechkin.
7 is a pretty arbitrary number. It's hard to figure something like this because skating is not defined as any attributes in particular, but just an overall assessment. Everyone's skating gets the job done. (except Koci)
This also means that most fall into the average. It additionally becoming harder to judge the because of the limited roles we see a player in. For instance, we don't get to see the shiftiness of defensemen, the backwards skating of forwards or much of anything from the goalies.
I took a look at everyone I've seen in the organization (that I can recall anything about them) and put the notably good skaters in one list, and the notably bad ones in the other.
We do/did have some good mobility in the back, especially from the call-ups.
Lecavalier (for his size)
Artyukhin (for his size)
Everyone else is pretty close to average for this level of play.
