genius!!! i was think Henrik?! i mean, withthose pads on he is a flying machine!!

but seriosuly, has to be Gomez. Drury's quick too. any way,w e 've certainly got alot faster as a team than when we had Nylander. Gomez and Drury give us a different threat with their extra pace.

Rangers have a lot of speed up front now with the additions of Gomez and Drury. Straka and Avery also can fly. Hollweg is fast, as is Prucha, Callahan is decent. We'll see who centers the 3rd line, but that's pretty decent team speed throughout the lineup.

Thinking about it, we really don't have a player that can flat out fly..But plenty of good skaters that you guys all have covered..

One guy that surpised the crap out of me a few times was Blair Betts..I know he's not the fastest on the team, but in a few instances where he got open ice last year, I was amazed at how he could motor once his long stride got going....OTOH, maybe it was all relative becasue Colton Orr was on the ice at the same time...

Isn't Dubinsky supposed to be a great skater? maybe he'll end up the fastest guy on the team next year.

but I've always thought Prucha was pretty fast, Prucha has always reminded me of Pavel Bure due to his small stature (muscle wise, Bure was 6'0 as well) and his goal scoring prowess.

I'd think it's Marty Straka, and Prucha has to be up there as well.

Tough to tell...

those little guys look fast, but I think they're just quick. Straka may be the fastest.

When Jagr turns it on he's tough to catch, but he rarely uses it.

Also Tyutin's mobility goes pretty unnoticed.

also because he's pretty fresh throughout the whole game due to low even strength minutes

Even in Straka's older state he's still easily the fastest Ranger. Gomez comes close but he doesn't have the same flat out skating speed.

Agree with most everyone, it's gotta be Straka.
