Canucks need a player who can skate differently


Recommended Posts

Why does everyone in the NHL skate the same now. There are no longer any distinctive skating styles. 


Gone are the days of the distinctive skating style that separated some players from the rest, Pavel Bure, Mario Lemiuex, even Russ Courtnall.


We need a defenceman who skates like Jyrki Lumme once did.


These guys don't exist anymore.

In what way, specifically, do you see different styles (as opposed to being merely a better skater) being an advantage?

Indeed.  It's like in basketball, where most players more or less shoot the same way.  Shooting percentages have gone up, and nowadays skaters are faster than ever because of proper training.
