    I think Konstantin Koltsov is the fastest player in the league and should've been named to that all rookie team.

    I second that. The times I've seen him play he's looked very good with the puck, an agile skater with that crazy fast extra gear...man, he has to be here for the fastest competition.

    Koltsov is the only guy I know that can be the first guy up on the forecheck and be the first guy back on the backcheck in the same play.

    Koltsov for sure.

    Chimera and Sturm are pretty fast, too.

    I think he might be talking about the Skills Competition.

    Edit: And yeah, I think Marleau has a good chance of winning.

    SOme of those competitions are quite difficult to call.
    In fact in the AHL All Star Game a few years back, defenseman Jean Luc Grand Pierre won it against all these small speedsters. Now hes a semi-tough guy, who has been moved to the wing, but where did that speed come from/go to?

    I too am really surprised to see that Koltsov didn't make the young stars game. I definitely thought that he'd get a spot.

    Who are teh goalies for teh young stars game?

    Koltsov should have made the team, he's been great but he's about as entertaining to watch as they get without...you know...being Mario Lemieux or Wayne Gretzky...

    I believe Antoine Vermette is the fastest player in the league followed by Koltsov.

    Jean-Luc won it during the Blue Jackets Skills comp the only year they did it, but Sanderson didn't participate, he probly would have one it.

    Fata is in the top 5 but Koltsov in my opinion is #1 all by himself.
    Chimera and St. louis can flat out fly also, but Koltsov has speed and quickness like ex Calgary Flame of the 80's Hakin Loob.

    ron wilson mentioned that marleau is likely to sit out the fastest skater competition because he is still nursing his ankle injury.

    This is for the All-Star game people. Koltsov aint gonna be there.

    My pick is Martin St.Louis.
