    Meh, he might be, he's definitely up there.

    No shot at McDavid, McDavid is easily in the top 3, but it's his hands and brain that set him apart, his speed although obviously extremely elite is hardly something that others can't challenge him on. There's probably another 10-15 guys in that range, but none of them are even CLOSE to his hands and IQ.

    There are other elite skaters too, but Kapanen is definitely among the best.

    How would Sparks know he's been in the league for like less than 20 games. So dishonest!

    It's still not the same as the actual quote, so no.

    So what? Why is it important? Save it for the all-star dog and pony show! It's not as if top end speed is even the most valuable aspect. Stop and start, acceleration, lateral movement, with or with-out the puck, backwards mobility...there is probably more to add. For me, top end is only interesting when 2 guys are racing for a puck or if one is trying to catch one on a breakaway!

    He’s fast but let’s not get crazy. McDavid is the undisputed fastest in the NHL. Then you have guys like Mackinnon and Barzal.
