I am trying to get a handle on how good/bad our overall team skating speed actually is.
I've heard some negative comments about it in recent weeks, although
not so much in recent days, due to our winning & all.
This is how I rate out overall team speed. I think I'm in the ballpark in most cases.
I just don't know how we actually match-up against other teams.
BA=below avg speed
AA=above average speed
WAA-way above average speed
That's a decent number of "AA" players, although not too many "WAA" guys.
And having Vey and Pearson out there makes us significantly faster (and more skilled) than
Fraser and Clifford in the same slots.
Do most other NHL teams really have a faster squad than that?
I would think The Kings are somewhere in the middle of the League, speed wise, albeit "lower middle".
But I could be wrong.
