While I completely agree that Desharnais doesn't belong in this poll it should be pointed out that those lap times are not at all a true indication of a players speed. These races are won in the turn behind the net and is as much a reflection of line choice and bravery/stupidity when the player decides how far they will push this potentially dangerous turn. Most of the elite players in the NHL don't care enough to take the risk necessary to post a fast time.

If you want a true measure of speed then you go from hash marks to hash marks, d-zone to o-zone.
