1.Guy Lafluer
2.Bobby Orr
3.Pavel Bure

Guy Lafluer is the best skater ever in the NHL, he clocked fastest skater too with Pavel Bure just a lil bit behind him. Bobby Orr we all know how good he is and Pavel Bure was just exciting to watch, he is THE most electrifying player to ever play the game. Whos your picks for the top 3 skaters ever?

The Best modern day skater is Marion Gaborik

Off the top of my head...

Bobby Orr
Guy Lafleur
Scott Niedermayer
Mike Gartner
Paval Bure
Sergei Fedorov
Sami Kapanen
and, in the context of his era, Cyclone Taylor.
also, Rico Fata and Konstantin Koltsov may be faster than any of the above, but unfortunately for them, they had little else to their games.
