Can't wait to watch this tonight. It would be so cool if Parise won the fastest skater. I personally would have liked to see him in the breakaway competition.

I think Zack's got a good chance to win the shootout comp. The new elimination thing they're doin.

Parise is going up against Nicklas Backstrom in one of these events, the elimination shootout, I think.

Yeah he is. I think the number on NHL.com said he was 0-1 in his career in shootouts against Backstrom. However, if you ask me, I don't think Backstrom can stop Parise in a shootout. I guess we'll see though. It would be funny to see him beat Backstrom and go on to go against Queen Henry. He'd probably do that nasty little backhand shot he's got and beat him over his left shoulder. AGAIN! :giggle:

Looking forward to seeing that. Parise vs. Backstrom is going to be good. Besides Brodeur, Backstrom is one of my favorite goalies in the NHL and one underrated one too, IMO. He is is good. Should be a real good elimination SO match up.

I think the skills competition is really the highlight of the weekend. Didnt Niedermayer win the fastest skater some years back?

It's over. Let us never speak of this again.

Speak of what now?

I like how everyone has a very French sounding name, even when they don't...Shea Weh-beer amused me greatly.

When they play that electronic rock music after each name is called it makes me feel like I'm playing an old video game.. Anyone? Anyone?
