While we do often have an edge in pure speed or acceleration, I don't believe we are THAT naturally faster than other teams. We just play a very strong positional system that gives us a strong edge in puck battle, transition play or intra-zone passing.
This kind of system really makes the other team stand out as slow or lazy
