The fastest lap is honestly a horrible drill, reguardless of what anyone says. Because it's over such a small distance all it takes is someone making one small mistake (ala Salmo) and it's over.. rather pointless, I think.
Saying Wellwood is as fast as Bure... that's gold :lol
You can NOT compare any lap times unless they were done at the same ice at the same time.. period. Why do you think the NHL doesn't recognize player personal laps from the teams own super skills? There was a year where Chimera broke Gartners record, but it wasn't counted as the fastest ever. Chimera is fast, obviously, but him being on the best ice in North America obviously helps.
