Haskell vs. OCaml

Haskell is my favourite language, but it's slow. In the Shootout, GHC-compiled Haskell performs poorly, while OCaml performs very well. Am I right in thinking laziness is to blame? Laziness is actually one of the less interesting things about Haskell in my view, I'm more interested in monads, type-classes, and other clever type stuff.
