    Who are the slowest, least agile, and most off-balance skaters you've ever seen in the NHL?

    Lucic may be the ugliest looking skater ever.

    And the way he skates is ugly as well.

    Dustin Brown of the L.A. Kings is always falling down while skating.

    Cheechoo and Latendresse weren't exactly great. Maybe not the worst but they were uh pretty bad

    I called Cory Sarich "The little engine that could" because while he would move his legs at a semi decent pace he wouldn't actually go anywhere.

    2017 Dennis Wideman is one of the slowest skaters I have seen in a long time, like you guys thought Wideman was slow before this year, he was McDavid out there compared to this past year.

    Towards the end of their careers Bertuzzi and Heatley we're extemely slow.

    Phaneuf is extremely slow.

    Bobby Ryan is always off balance and falling down.

    So many of the players named have played for the Kings, damn. Allison, Smyth, Brown, King, Robitaille, Lucic...

    You could probably add Michal Handzus to that list, too.

    He was hardly an NHL player, but John Zeiler actually couldn't skate.
