some of you may remember me asking for this and other ratings in 2011. well, the speed ratings for players that are still active have almost entirely remained the same and I've rated newcomers based on articles and bios and the likes. I made a few adjustments here and there, but I imagine that it needs an overhaul in this important criteria. I very much appreciate the help. keep it coming, if you don't mind.
Most of the lineup
Handzus and Roszival go into the SLOWWWWWWW category.
There is no way in hell Toews is faster in a straight line or agility-wise than Patty Kane... or am I missing something here? Just because he might slow the game down often doesn't mean he doesn't have wheels..
Pretty good list, but I'd put Nieto 2nd. The kids fast!
The difference between the top six is somewhat negligible, it's almost a disservice to that group to rank them.

I hate Burish as much as anyone but the dude is fast, as are Brown and Torres. Not the "best" skaters but from a speed standpoint they're right up there near the top. I probably should have put Demers a little higher now that I think about it though.
