By my eye, Kovalchuk was the fastest guy by a hair last year, although Horcoff won (if you saw it, you know what I mean).
Yeah, I hate this new fastest skater comp. It's all acceleration, and less about top speed and ability to accelerate and maintain speed through the turns.

I'd pick Kovalchuk or Marleau for this. If it were the old competition, it would probably be Campbell or Niedermayer as my picks.

I think Parise and Kane could surprise some people if they compete.
