Fast Skaters

This is an interesting article on NHL.com.  It mentions a lot of Blue Jackets, both current and former.  Also quoted is Bill Davidge, broadcaster and former Miami hockey coach.

Whenever hockey-skating experts are asked who the fastest NHL skaters are, they invariably ask, “Straight ahead, lateral movement or pursuit of puck?”

Davidge said that when you combine top-end speed, lateral motion and puck hunger, the fastest player also is the best player — Washington Capitals right wing Alex Ovechkin. Adams agrees.

“Ovechkin has all those things — puck want, quickness, strength, and the stride to go with all those things,” Davidge said. “That’s why he is the best player in the game today.”

Nice article, but what about Kris Russell?

So there you have it.  People outside of Columbus have now been exposed to Bill Davidge.  No question about it, they are better off.
