Why do I bring up Greening? Because he self-admittingly said that Karlsson was much faster than him, from blue-line to blue-line (no cornering).

Most foot races in hockey are from point a to b, which benefits Karlsson heavily.

Here's another report that shares the opinion:

Didn't Greening have the fastest time, but it just wasn't in the skills comp finals?


edit: he did, in the first round of the competition Hagelin was 12.993, and Greening was 12.963
