He should take care of the puckhandling contest...I don't think he'd try for the hardest shot, or the fastest skater, but I can just imagine what he'll do in the shootout...it boggles the mind!
Yeah Datsyuk v Brodeur would be cool if it matches up that way. Pity he can't go against Turco! That would be interesting to see if he pulled off a similar move to that awesome one earlier in the season.
I have to say though I don't rate him in the puck control competition.
Bookmark this if you want and if he wins I will happily apologise
but I think there is no way he can beat St Louis. Players like St Louis and Kariya, who win these things, aren't as good at puck control, but its more a test of acceleration and speed carrying the puck than nifty moves. Not that Datsyuk doesn't possess a healthy amount of both just that IMO he isn't suited to this competition as much as St Louis.
