I think its hard to tell who is faster between the two of them without watching them race one another. They're both so fast - if one beats the other its by a small enough margin that its not obvious by just watching them play. I'm not sure why Gaborik wasn't in the speed competition last year but I'm going to guess he was injured or he wasn't on the radar because he wasn't having a very good year while Grabner was not only scoring a lot but doing it mostly with his speed. I'd really like to watch them compete this year though, Gaborik seems to have his zip back after an odd year all around last season and Grabner is just a breakaway machine.
