breakaway will be Crosby, Fastest will be Afinigenov, Hardest shot will be a toss up, shot accuracy will be Ovechkin.

I don't want to be a homer or anything but I'm pretty confident that Souray will win the hardest shot competition.

They gave that up after the first time playing it, because it was a snooze fest and only one player scored on it (I forget who).

Sid won't be winning a breakaway contest anytime soon...Accuracy would not surprise me though.

I'd like to see Kotalik in a hardest shot contest.

Like I said, one guy score one goal.

Souray for hardest shot, Afinogenov for fastest skater, and someone really obscure for most accurate.

I'd have to go with that.
Afino for speed. Don't they also have a relay obstacle course with Rich Pilons ...
other than than that dunno....
breakway contest for goalie, from what I see Miller... he's very good on shootouts..

Yeah, nobody cares about the all-star game.

I wonder how good Rory would do?

Souray and Ovechkin in the respective and obvious categories.

Gotta go with Scott Niedermeyer for most accurate shot.
