Thats kind of what I thought too. Its not as if you are going to skate exactly as fast every time and that test is prone to bias because the skaters know what stride they are doing at the time.
I do actually agree with the video somewhat in that I find that wider stride works better for me (you dont see very many NHL players who skate with a narrow stride because it would be too easy for them to get knocked down).
