    Who are some of the fastest skaters in the league, aside from guys like McDavid, Hagelin, Cogliano, Eichel, Athanasiou, and Larkin?

    I'm just trying to see who else is fast because I know that if I just who the fastest skater was it would be 1 page of McDavid

    Miles Wood. I am pretty sure there have been some frame by frames done of him against some of the elite in another thread and he had beaten everyone

    without wanting to sound like a Homer, Drouin needs to be involve in that list, this guy flys and also won fastest skater at the all-star in 2015

    Ehlers amazes me in all aspects speed-related - acceleration, top speed, and speed with the puck on his stick.

    I'm not sure if Duncan Keith is actually fast or just looks so damn smooth

    Josi. Remember in the skills competition he was barely beat out by Larsson. I know that's not the end all but it shows his speed.

    Yandle doesn't open it up often, but he can really go when he sprints.

    Kreider isn't agile, but is up there in straight ahead speed.

    Hansen and Grabner are getting older but still fast.

    Miles Wood absolutely ****ing burns. He's in the fastest player in the league conversation.

    Eichel. Looks like he's on cruise control but he's so powerful and efficient in his strides.

    Wood and Letang. The way Letang is able to recover after pinching is incredible to watch.
