Kovalev to be in shootout challenge ASG
 
http://www.rds.ca/hockey/chroniques/266942.html


He's gonna do it with Crosby, Getzlaf, Kane and Ovechkin.

Riverboat Gambler 01-13-2009 10:26 AM

Kovalev could be those guys' Dad. Who knows?

Le Tricolore 01-13-2009 10:28 AM

I bet he goes backhand, and hits the post.

Watsatheo 01-13-2009 10:28 AM

Sweet. Can't wait to see what he does.

Judge Sauer* 01-13-2009 10:29 AM

we all knew he'd go for it. Can't wait to see what trick he pulls out. Hopefully he'll be doing them at practice so we can get a glimpse.

Jee 01-13-2009 10:30 AM

seriously, no Datsyuk????

I'm not betting against that...

He'll drop both his gloves, tie a bandana in front of his eyes, keep his right arm behind his back, take his stick upside down and fakes using it like a blind man's cane, dekes with the other edge of the stick, throw the puck inside his collar, get the puck out from behind his jersey, bow down and give it a kiss while skating forward and then shoot it top corner with the stick between his legs, still using the other edge of the stick.

Bill McNeal 01-13-2009 10:33 AM

Crosby? He's a great talent but he's never exactly wowed me with his shootout moves.

Like someone already mentioned, Datsyuk would be much more entertaining.

i could have sworn i read somewhere that datsyuk will be participating. that's ridiculous though...datsyuk should be in there of all people

Judge Sauer* 01-13-2009 10:35 AM

I could have sworn that the players get to pick what they participate in this year.

Kimota 01-13-2009 10:36 AM

They should put him in the circling of the cones thing.

there are only 5 names mentioned, 3 from the east, 2 from the west. I wouldn't count him out just yet.

Freaky Habs Fan 01-13-2009 10:39 AM

It's gonna be sick if he can keep the puck on his stick! Can't wait to see that, but I hope the camera will not be behind he players like last year...it was impossible to see anything!!!

la25ecoupe 01-13-2009 10:42 AM

He's gonna throw the puck forward then use a curling broom to clean the ice until the puck goes in the 5 hole.

It provided one of the funniest moments.

Gaborik sets off

Poor guy :)

Are the people who choose the performers for this challenge are Habs Fans? Because clearly it was David Kreiji that was supposed to be there! Kovalev dont deserve... dont deserve...

He'll do the "Lacrosse move". Kovy with the "Rousseau ads" move.

Haddock 01-13-2009 10:45 AM

If they put Datsyuk in someone needs to make sure he understands what this competition is about. Last year's effort was brutal.

Pascal 01-13-2009 10:47 AM

uhh Crosby? please.. Datsyuk can deke his pants off.

That's how I feel about Getzlaf. He lamed up the contest last year from what I remember.

Considering the knew Skills Comp. format, I don't think that matters.

Go Kovalev. Let the oldster show the youngsters how it's done
