    Prospect: Tony Salmelainen(EDM) and Konstantin Koltsov(PIT)

    NHLer: Jason Chimera was clocked with the fastest time ever in a lap around an NHL rink, so to be the man, you have to beat the man.

    I am not sure who is the fastest, but the most important thing IMO is not the top speed but acceleration, explosiveness. The top speed across top NHLer doesnt vary a lot, but an explosive first few steps let a player get in the clear while the other is picking up speed. So to me the rink lap doesn't mean much, but say a 30foot dash and back is a much more accurate measure.

    Antoine Vermette is defenitely right up there. Two years ago in training camp, they took his skating times in camp, and it was better than anybody else in the Sen history. THat includes Hossa, Havlat, Shawn McEachearn and so forth. He's pure speed, right up there with guys like Koltsov.

    Jeff Tambellini is quite possibly the fastest prospect in the college ranks. I don't know how he would match up against all the rest though.
     
  10. Nolan is that fast? He never seemed to be that fast at devils camps. He is pretty big with loads of offense also, I hope he works out in Vancouver.
     
  11. The only prospect of NJ thats fast is Teemu Laine, he is mach type fast, he can't do anything else though lol. I want a closer look of him in North America though.

    Player: Chimera, obviously
    Prospect: Koltsov

    I've never seen Chimera, so for all I know Koltsov is the fastest period. I've seen Koltsov though, live too, and he is the fastest thing I've ever seen.
     
  13. Anyone from Finland to compare Laine to other players. I once heard he could be the fastest in Finland, I doubt this is true but I bet he is fast though.

    That's why I picked Sjostrom. The kid has wheels, but he can also hit full speed in about 3 strides or so. And he isn't a little guy either.

    Exactly, didn't Shawn Heins set some sort of record for skating around a rink, but he looked like an average skater, at best, for the Pens. Meanwhile, Kolstov has explosive acceleration. I don't think I've seen anyone with a better first 3 strides than him other than Bure.

    He won the fastest skater competition in the OHL or something like that, but I think that Koltsov is definitely the fastest prospect right now.

    Not every prospect is in the OHL.

    Really? Thanks, I didn't know that. :rolleyes:
    I was just stating that he must be pretty fast if he won the fastest skater competition in the OHL.

    Polak has decent speed, but by no means is he among the fastest prospects. Much less the fastest on the Stars, I'd give that nod to Jokinen. or Trevor Daley.

    Fastest prospect? Tough call.. though I know for sure Daley is one of them.
