They would probably tell him to take the night off. You can't have talentless players in a skills comp.

Agreed with the fixes. Crosby isn't winning any breakaway competitions anytime soon...but a few defenders in front of him and he's magic but the guy can't score with an open trail ahead of him to save his life. Accuracy is a different story though...the kid is William Tell with his shot.

He has made ONE good move on a breakaway, and that was in that shootout against montreal. This year however, his shootouts have been so bad that I've almost wanted them to not put him in. He dekes way to slow, and it just looks like he dosen't know what to do or something.

But yea, he's got amazing accuracy.

in Rory's defense he won the hardest shot competition in the '96 AHL all-star game and won the accuracy shootout at Canucks camp this past summer.

If he would go in full speed like that goal against Montreal, he'd be good, but for some reason he glides in and looks dumb.

i'd have to say rolston would be a top 2 or 3 for hardest slap shot i'll guess it at between 112 and 117 hey we shall see right

i'll also say gaborik could be top 3 for fastest skater although i hope he dont compete cause we kinda need him the rest of the season haha GOOD OLD GLASS GROIN

Shot: Souray, easy. (104 mph at '04 AS game)
Fastest Skater: Toss up between Niedermeyer and Afinogenov.
Breakaway: Homer pick, Rolston. Just take that slapper of his, and he'll snipe them everytime.

Accuracy: Give it to Sid.

If Patrick Marleau makes the team, watch out of him in the fastest skater competition. He is easily one of the fastest accelerating players in the game.

then maybe the cone relay. if acceleration is his thing then wouldnt he be better suited to that? Acceleration in that event is crucial, the key reason Paul Kariya won it like 5 straight times or whatever it was.
