Bure's speed with the puck was unrivaled. Fedorov was a faster skater in general, but his speed with the puck was nothing like Bure's.

That said - Datsyuk and Bure make people look foolish in 2 different levels. With Datsyuk it's mostly stickwork, with Bure it's mostly speed.

Not that Bure didn't have top-3 hands in the league at the time he was playing...that combination of speed and hands made him literally the most exciting player in NHL history - and to me it's not even close.
