Best Skating Ability on Dallas?

Who are the 7 best and 7 worse skaters on Dallas?

(high-end speed, quickness, lateral movement etc)

Thanks for your input!

Not really going to with the 7 best and 7 worst thing...

The 3 best overall skaters are Daley, Eriksson, and Neal. They have all the positive attributes that you mentioned.

Just a shade below that group is Modano. He's lost several steps but you still can't find a more pure stride.

Then you have skaters who excel at one facet, but are deficient in another. Richards, for example, has a very high top-speed, but rarely gets to use it in game situations. Ribeiro has a ridiculous agility and can turn on a dime, but is downright slow most of the time.

It's difficult to pick out the worst skaters now that pretty much everyone can skate or they wouldn't be in the league. Sydor falls under this category though. Parrish is pretty bad also.

You forgot to mention Sydor's penchant of falling in key situations.

I think as far as goalies go Marty Turco is pretty quick himself.

Brunnstrom has pretty good speed. He can move latterly fairly well too.

Daley is probably the purest skater now. Peterson is above average as well. Not exceptional but picks them up and puts them down, north/south, well.

Modano still has a beautiful stride. Like piq, I think he's lost a step but still above average for this league.

Brunnstrom has almost the same explosive skating as Hossa, except I think Hossa is slightly faster.

But out of all of them I agree that Daley is the most fluid skater.

Robidas has to be in any conversation as the best all-around skater on the club. It's probably between him and Daley, but really it's about a wash.
