A conversation came up with a friend about the Devils top 5 fastest skaters (current roster). 

 

The names that I thought of were Loktionov, Tedenby, Brunner, Carter, & Greene.  I'd have a hard time really putting this in 1-5 order.  It is tough to determine unless you had a skills competition on the Devils team.

 

Any thoughts?

hey, hey, I asked top 5 because it was the harder question.  Slowest 5 is the easy way out.

I don't know what you're talking about, they're all blisteringly fast. I can barely see them when they skate.......

Find five pregnant Devils wives.  All are faster than the Devils' top five "fastest" skaters.  Maybe you meant fattest skaters?

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

how long of a race? how about a 10 yard burst?  IMO a burst is more importand than a rink wide race. it also has a LOT to do with the lactate threshold. legs go dead easily in the fast paced NHL shift. many a times a guy looks slow in a situation but its because HES DONE!

 

not too many devils stand out, its more like you need to back into the answer by eliminating the 90% of the slow dudes, which are plenty

Zubrus might be up there as well, he's worked on his skating in the past few years, looks really fast out there when he wants to be.

he constantly gets from the blue line dump in to the puck behind the net to set up the deep cycle. most D-men just concede it now. lol

They are all so slow it is a difficult question. Tedenby is the fastest on the team but he is a bench warmer because no one else can keep up with him.

I think a lot of that is how strong he is though. He is very good at getting around the defender and just leaning into them.

No doubt that's part of it , timing also, plus he's a spiderman with a huge footprint along the boards. but he's sneaky fast in that zone
