Hagelin is a rook with everything to prove and is skating his balls off... Gabby is comfortably making millions and skates better than 99% of the league.

I love Hagelin, and hope he continues to contribute... but there's only one correct answer.

I'm going with Hagelin.



I'm trying to imagine a line with both of them on it.

Kreider can play center, I think.

Hagelin-Kreider-Gaborik.

WAT.

I'm having a baby over that right now.

Hagelin is such a wonderful athlete. Yes he's skating his ass off right now, but it still looks so natural and often effortless. His brain works just as fast too. Great combination. I love his decisiveness. Takes the shot when he should. Gets it deep when he should. Loving his game right now.

Gaborik with the puck. Hagelin without.

You do realize we're pretty much calling Hagelin the fastest skater in the NHL, and Kreider the fastest in the world, here, right?

I also think Cally's skating is pretty damn underrated, but can't keep up with any of them in a sprint

Gaborik but Kreider is probably faster than both.

These 3 are just what we need as we lack foot speed hence why we struggle against teams like Habs and Panthers.

The thing about Gabby is the speed he can obtain in three strides… He is unbeatable.

Its a tough call. Hagelin has so much hustle and you always see him flying all over the ice, but Gaborik makes it look so easy. I'm gonna go with Hagelin just because of the stories of him never losing a race at Michigan

Voted Gabby because I think he reaches top speed faster.

I wouldn't go that far.

But, Kreider will be arguably the fastest skater in the league. Absolutely.

His acceleration is unrivaled, IMO. No one gets out of the blocks like this kid does.

if it's a race, i think their speed is pretty close but from what I've seen, Gaborik has a more explosive first few steps i.e. acceleration. So going with Gaborik.

I voted Hagelin - I think that if you're talking a simple, end-to-end race it's close, but he wins. (Although if Kreider's in the mix, he beats 'em both.) When it comes to quickness and play with the puck, as another poster noted, it's Gabby, hands down.

Bolded part might actually be truthful.

The NHL players have voted Gabby the fastest player in the league. Based on his in game explosiveness when shown an opportunity.

Is Krieder really faster than both these guys? That's amazing if true.
