Dats, though has quick acceleration, doesn't need speed. He'll just dangle through 5 guys and undresses the goalie for his goals.

No doubt Helm is fast --- (too bad he doesn't have the skill to go with it!)

Anyway --- There are faster players.

Andrew Cogliano
Marian Gaborik
Patrick Kane
Mason Raymond (Questionable--- Maybe EQUAL to Helm)
Maxim Afinogenov

I have not seen Gaborik play this season but I wonder if his injuries slowed him down a little. I'm sure Helm could go around the rink in the 13 second range, which is top league speedster times.

I remember back in the early 90s, watching Fedorov post times in the low 13s. My favorite was the 94 skills competition, Fedorov vs Coffey when Fedorov broke the existing record by about two tenths of a second.

A friend of mine knows somebody who regularly caddies for Tkachuk. He says ol' chunker has gained 15 pounds since the end of last season.

Franzen said last year that Helm was the fastest skater he'd ever seen.

Someone mentioned Fipulla, Babcock has said in the past he is the best skater on the team (NB "best", not "fastest").
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I remember that quote. I wonder how he defines best skater. He obviously doesn't count those relatively stationary moments where Fil seems to lose his balance a lot.

But I'm not sure Helm is clearly faster than Fil. Because Helm gets to play less minutes he can afford to go full blast when he's out there. At least, moreso than Filppula. Babs should make those two play a "suicide" contest or something.

Fedorov didn't break a record in 94 as Gartner had a time that was better then Fedorov by .015 of a second in 93. If 92 was the first time ever (I cant find times before 92) that the fastest skater was done then Fedorov had the first record as he won that year.

Pretty nuts that a 36 year old could hang with the young people.

Hans Lebda was good at looking like he was skating fast with the aerodynamic astro glide.

Helm is definitely the fastest on the team and the only prospects that are close are Mursak, Owens and Ferraro. Ferraro won the top prospects game fastest skater competition in his draft year and his game is completely built around speed. Thats why the knee injuriy hurt his production so much last season.

Sammy skates faster backwards than any other player in hockey.

That is, when someone challenges him to a fight. :hehe:
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.
