It is only fair to point out that adding Hagelin to the top line and all of those minutes and putting Fedo (one of the slowest skaters in the league) down to the #4 line is a HUGE upgrade since that time in overall foot speed. And what the Leafs lack in talent they make up in footspeed. They are one of the fastest teams in the league.
