Are the fastest NHL skaters really all that fast?

Most players that have played for a long time (not even talking NHL guys) can fly at top speed... the difference with NHL guys is the explosiveness and of course the fact that they can go that fast with the puck.
TC, as someone who builds dasher boards for NHL, KHL, NCAA and community rinks, I can tell you that this is the most wrong you've been in years.
To be clear, *I build the very rinks you are discussing*. These rinks are *not* all the same. In any given week, we will have to build a couple rinks, one scheduled for twice as many man hours as the next. Know why?
