I have spoken to some of the principals involved with Speed Hockey in the past. I have not shared the details of what I was told because I was asked not to. My impressions of the sport and how it's being developed is that I don't think they're looking to take over traditional roller hockey. I think Speed Hockey will be a compliment to traditional roller hockey; something different enough where some people will want to play both and has been mentioned, the rink set-up is such that a full-size rink can be easily converted to host two Speed Hockey rinks side-by-side. They have some heavy hitters involved so I'm sure their chances for success are pretty good.
