I agree with a good amount of this list, Cale Makar and even Heiskanen should be on here in my opinion

Point? I'd have Barzal over Point any day - and many others too.

Paul Byron is a very fast straight line skater. McDavid is probably the best skater in the league, especially considering how fast he can be while he has the puck.

Criminal to leave off the best skater the league ever saw. He’s the captain of Kassian and nurse who both could out skate several listed here

Kapanen incredible straight away speed. Crosby best edges in the league ever.

To remain under the cap they would have to edge out Romanov and Guhle. Both of which I think are better skaters than Heiskanen and arguably Makar. Thanks for your input

This team is under the cap. Sure Barzal is a better skater than Point I agree, but he'll sign for more than 6.7 and therefore not fit in the cap on this team

Too expensive for this team.

This isn't all about flat out speed, skating is so much more than that. As I stated this is a cap-compliant team. Much harder to do that with a 12.5 mil McDavid

You are right, how could I leave out Jeff Skinner?? Nurse is not a better skater than any of those D-men, Kassian has speed only, no edgework or lateral mobility.

Agree that Kapanen is fast, as I stated this team is cap compliant so I'd have to replace Kapanen with Hintz, Hintz is a better skater overall. Crosby has arguably the best edges in the league, Skinner has him beat with mohawk turns and 10 & 2s though.

Never heard of Hell Kreider, is he a new prospect in the league? Cap compliant team means I cannot use big AAV players
