I actually think we are faster than last year. Off that roster are players like Sillinger, Perreault, and Witt. In their place have stepped in players like Dumont, Arnott, Radulov, Forsberg, and Weber. While none of those guys are absolute burners, neither is as slow as that aforementioned trio. What makes us a lot slower is the loss of Sullivan. But he wasn't near full-speed last year against the Sharks, so I'm not sure it matters all that much when comparing last years to this years.
