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.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
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.
breakaway relay: West
breakaway 1 on 1: Kariya (isnt he unbeaten in this or something crazy?)

hardest shot: Souray
hardest shot overall: East
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. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Vbted5AB4Jw

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.
