Are the fastest NHL skaters really all that fast?

I don't know how else I can say it, you are wrong. And you can tell me that you know how they are designed, but you're talking to a guy that handles the blueprints for them every single day, who builds them, who signs off on the quality checks, who skids them to be shipped.
You can have rinks with 80 boards, you can have rinks with 120 boards. The standard sized board for a pro series rink (which are the kind you find yourself playing on) is 42 by 96 inches, with variances for return boards, man gates, radius boards and machine gates. But you do the math, if 90% of the boards are 8 feet long, and some rinks have 80 boards while others have 120, you tell me how every NA rink is the same size give or take a foot.
