Nashvilles Top Skaters

Who are a few of the best skaters on this team (speed, lateral movement etc) and who are some of the worse skaters on this team?

Thanks for the input

The team's best skaters are Klein, Legwand, and Suter, in that order.
In terms of pure speed, Pihlström is one of the top players in the NHL. That kid can fly. In terms of lateral and backwards movement, Koistinen is actually quite good, but he doesn't have the "north-bound" speed that would make him much more effective at this level.

I would add Erat and Klein to the good and Dumont to the bad

I was going to try and avoid that because I like Dumont, but yeah, he's pretty brutal. Ward isn't that great, and Arnott has some acceleration issues but is okay when he gets to top speed.

Radulov is like the Road Runner - he's moving his legs really fast, but he's not going anywhere.

Klein may be faster than Legwand and Suter, but I disagree he is the better overall skater. Maybe after he better establishes himself and gains more confidence, his skating skills will start to shine. They just aren't right now. Agree with your other choices though.

Pihlstrom's skating is a lot like mine...extremely fast, but lacking style and control. I wouldn't say he's a "great" skater, for that reason.

Legwand and Suter are our best, I think. Klein and Erat are good as well.

Zanon isn't a very good skater either. DeVries looks like that big akward guy who is always about to fall but never does. Ward is a awful skater. I would say Legwand is the best skater on the team. Effortless and smooth best describe his skating. Honorable mentions to Erat and Suter.
