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
/this has to be a repost, even though I checked and didn't see it.
