    Who are some of the fastest prospects in hockey? I know that speed isn't everything, but lets be honest, it's a sexy skill.

    List some Forwards as well as D

    Daniel Catenacci, 2011 eligible. Probably the fastest of all 2011 eligibles.

    Ryan Murphys pretty easily the fastest (And best skating) defensemen this year, and probably the fastest in quite a few years.

    Funny how two best friends are most probably the fastest skaters in this Draft. Both Catenacci and Murphy played minor hockey together with the York Simcoe Express.

    Sami Vatanen, D, (2009 draft if I remember correctly). One of the fastest at least.

    Murphy is one of the fastest and smoothest skaters I've seen in a while.

    Blacker from owen sound is pretty quick for a Dman too. So is Sproul

    Murphy's skating is unreal, one of the best skating defensemen I've seen in ages. Can you say Niedermayer? The guy is a treat to watch on the ice

    I don't know if he still counts as a prospect, but Mattias Tedenby is absurdly fast and agile.

    Nashvilles Patric Cehlin and Rangers Jesper Fasth is really fast both of them. No idea if they belong to the absolute fastest though. Fasth surname should give him some extra credit I think.

    I don't know if you still consider him a prospect but Alexander Burmistrov. Faster then Tayor Hall.

    Yeah...Greening is old but I guess he's still a prospect. Next year will be his rookie season. The guy is a lightning bolt on the ice. He's very, very fast.

    Yep Burmistrov is fast and he's not gonna be considered a prospect next year but he was for most of this and same with Boedker.

    One guy who is a bit older, early 20s but can be called a prospect because he's not an NHLer is Kyle Cumiskey. He's suffered a concussion I think this year. He's very weak defensively, the Avs really need to try shifting him to a forward or that speed is being wasted because he loses the puck when bringing it across the zone as well.

    Catenacci fastest skater in the 2011 draft, I believe his time was better then Grabner's at the NHL all star game.

    Cumiskey has been an NHLer whenever he has been healthy enough to play in the last two years...

    Catenacci is this draft years fastest.

    Danny Kristo the Montreal Canadiens prospect who is in the NCAA. Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson is really fast too, even tho he is maybe no more consider as a prospect.
