Are the fastest NHL skaters really all that fast?

now he just looks average at best skating wise in the nhl.
Daley definitely looks more than above average in the NHL...
I've been on the ice with him. When he actually tried in the scrimmage (against a bunch of A-AA players down here) it was ungodly how he destroyed us. At one point both teams all got out on the ice against him (~20 players) and even still, we couldn't stop him (no checking, of course
). Television doesn't do these players justice. Hell, even being at the game doesn't. You don't realize just how insane the level of skill is in the NHL until you actually experience it.
