It isn't necessarily foot speed that matters. Is he strong on his skates? Is he strong with the puck? Does he skate well despite a lack of top end speed?

Think back to Peter Forsberg - Not a overly fast skater, but he was one of the strongest skaters in the world.

As for the draft this year, I think it is very likely we end up with the 10th overall pick. This is likely defensemen range. However, I think you are in perfect position to dangle a player/pick to move up into the top 5. A LOT of teams are in need of defensemen at the top of this draft. Colorado comes to mind. There are many others.
