After watching the draft today and thinking about the order of players chosen we can see that from now on players who don't have good skating abilities will fall by alot due to the changes which will occur in the NHL Take for example Anze kopitar and Latendresse. I am quite sure that if it were not for their bad skating they would have been picked much higher. Some might say Ryan was picked #2. I guess because he is an awkward skater. Meaning it is his style of skating that makes him a below average skater, and not his natural abilities. You can work with him and change his technique.
