The title says it all.
The question is about skill/talent and not about the skating ability...
Victor Mete. Unbelievable crossovers and pivots. Great edge work, great top end speed and acceleration. Great lateral mobility.
Petry is one of the most fluid and effortless in the league.
Mete, Byron, Gally, Plek are good too. But Petry is something else. IRL it's even more apparent.
Suspect poll options tbh. Hudon?? Kotka? What? Two different "other" options? You should start over. Petry Mete are the best and arent there. Come on.
I'll need to see more of Domi to really evaluate that part of his game. For now I'd say Mete, so ''other'' I guess. His acceleration and ability to turn on a dime are both top notch. Drouin has a great top speed but isn't quite as fluid. Petry is silky smooth and elegant but he doesn't use his speed all that often.
It's Mete or Rielly
Drouin, Mete, Riely or Petry. They seem to teleport over the ice at will.
Marc Bergevin, if you know what i mean
He uses it but it's not as noticeable because he's so smooth. But he's the best to skate back after a forward who slipped by our D. A few strides and he's flying. Mete is amazingly quick not as effective yet. Give it a few years of NHL experience and he'll use his amazing skating tools in a smarter way. IQ to position oneself and make your feet follow what your brain wants to do is an important aspect of the craft imo.
Got to say Mete as of right now, but the Reilly kid is pretty smooth. Surprisingly, we have a lot of excellent skaters on the squad this year.
So Mete, Reilly and Petry are more talented than all of our forwards? Great....
I'm assuming Belial meant 'forward' rather than 'skater'. The best skating forward is Drouin.
Our best skating player overall would be mete IMO.
Well, if we're going strictly with the forwards then it's Drouin, until I've seen more of Domi at the very least.
Most talented SKATER.
Yeah, title could have been worded much better rather than being sassy about it...
I think he meant skater as in: most talented player that's not a goaltender.
Not necessarily the skill of skating specifically.
The answer would be Kotkaniemi.
I thought the question revolved around skating ability, guess not. Should've just said most talented player.
How is Paul Byron not an option?
The guys from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye.
Skater as in the whole team without the goaltenders, and not skater like the skill to skate... I thought it was obvious, I guess not...
The question would've been who's the best skater, in that case, don't you think?
Reading comprehension wasn't the greatest here (esp considering the options were all forwards) but saying most talented player would have avoided any confusion.
I didn't want to say that because the correct answer would've been Price...
Confusion over confusion...
I should've said forward, my bad.
I don't see how people would have interpreted it that way, if you said best player maybe, anyway the answer is Drouin in terms of pure talent and ability.
