Fedorov had a higher top end than Bure but he did not have Bure's or Orr's or even Lafleur's acceleration.
Fed's needed a little wind up to really get going. Bure could accelerate in a phone booth.
It was always Bure's acceleration that let him blow by guys, not his actual speed.
And you left out Russ Courtnall, he's easily in the top 5. Russ was so fast that his feet would be at the hash marks but his hands would still be at the blueline lol
