First .. being selected to participate makes a statement ..

Second big Jay Bouwmeester is a great skater and Welly's time 2/10 of a second around an arena .. Can the Human eye even detect 2/10ths of a second ??? Thats like blinking once or twice ..

As you said Salmelainen is a known speedster ... 14.762 verses 14.776 .. 14/100's of a second difference??

From his HF Profile

Tony Salmelainen - Talent Analysis - TIME : 14.762

In the summer of 2002, Salmelainen signed a contract with the Oilers and came to North America. His breathtaking speed made him a fan favourite, and he scored 14 goals in the regular season.
Salmelainen's most obvious skill is his speed, but he supplements it with an underrated shot.

Niklas Kronwall - Talent Analysis - TIME : 15.000

He is a great skater with good lateral movement and phenomenal speed.
He has great skating ability, hockey sense, passing skills, shot

Kyle Wellwood - Talent Analysis - TIME : 14.776

Wellwood does not have the speed necessary to avoid these hits.
His skating continues to be an area for improvement as does his strength

Is that really too slow ??
