I have a friend who's from Oil Country. He's around 6'4 and he had Cogliano speed. Seriously, he is BLAZING fast. Anyone can be a fast skater but it's the combination of everything that stands them WAY out to an average person.
I'm getting older, my knees are shot, but I still can beat the kids in one lap at the rink. But that's one lap, I couldn't play them in a game now.Just because your fast, that doesn't always make you a great hockey player.
