the greatest/most surprising moment ever at the skills competition has to be this (1:05 mark):

Metro was good for us. I'm surprised he didn't sign in the NHL.

I wondered why Wizniewski uses a white stick and he just answer to my question in this video: White Lightning. I just can't believe that we have a Lightning wizard in our team though I expected his lightning to be faster than Pouliot's one.

On the other hand, nobody can say that Desharnais is too slow for the NHL now that he finished 3rd in the speed competition.

The thing with Desharnais is that unlike a lot of smaller player he's not VERY fast. He's a good skater and its not a problem. I guess some people took reports that he wasn't super fast and thought that it was a huge fault in his game. Its very possible and logical Desharnais has been working a lot on his skating in the last few years also. He seems like a pretty determined and intelligent guy, and he knows he won't grow 6 inches and gain 40 pounds, his best chance is to skate fast, be skilled and know the game.

Athough, as far as I could tell in that video, they just picked four random guys to skate in the speed contest. Probably Gomez, Gio or Plekanec would have been faster than those guys. Desharnais was comparable to the others he raced against, but they didn't time everyone on the team.

It should come as no surprise that pouliot has a heavy shot. That being said, it doesnt mean that he should be blowing pucks past goalies every game. It has very little relevance to how effective he is in game action, which is the only thing I care about

Chad Kilger had one of the hardest shots in the league during his time in the nhl, so take it for what its worth, although I like pouliot alot more than kilger as a player.

I still can't fathom Pouliot having a hardest shot than like John LeClair...

Have the sticks changed over the years? I just watched the 1996 All-Star competition and nobody broke the 100 mph barrier (even in practice). The two hardest shots were LeClair @ 97.5 and Manson at 98.0. Only Iafrate seemed to breeze through (105.1 mph in "practice" but he hadn't played for 2 years (injury) and did it for the lulz).

They used to have wooden sticks. The wood sticks don't flex like the new ones so you would need much more power in your shot with a wooden stick to get the same speed out of the puck. The good thing about wood is you rarely saw the sticks breaking like the new ones are. Basically you can get more energy per weight out of the carbon ones.

Which basically means a guy like Iafrate had a real cannon.

Could he have done ~110 mph with new carbon sticks?

Should Martin try Pouliot on the second wave right PP point? He can't be worse defensively than MAB, his slap shot is just as powerful, and it's accurate as well...

Lucky for players, Iafrate is gone otherwise he'd kill someone today with a composite stick
