Jets skills competition. http://www.tsn.ca/wi...port/?id=380573

I don't remember the devils doing anything like this, or maybe it just isn't marketed but in the comments it said something about 10,000 ppl attended at $25 a ticket. I think I would go to something like this. It would be a nice way to raise some extra cash, although I think Lou would frown on this type of thing. Your thoughts?

I would absolutely go to this. I think it would be alot of fun to watch and the players would have a blast.

However I also think you are right, Lou would want the players to concentrate on the games and not the outplaying eachother aspect.

The Devils did do something like this at one time. Richer hit 100+ MPH on his shot during one of them i believe.

I don't think Captain Lou of the Fun Police would allow this to go down.

yeah, the devils did one in 2000-01. they had the cup and all the trophies on display at the event. it was pretty neat, tickets were only like 15 bucks (i think if you had a season tix they were included in your plan) and i remember them inviting everyone into the lower bowl to enjoy. a lot of the players gave out sticks and gloves afterward. i had a blast. always wished they'd do it again.

If I remember correctly this was done in the past by each team in preparation of the All Star weekend and the team winner competed against each other at that weekend. I think it was in the late 90s like '96 '97 & '98.

They definitely did this in the mid-90s. I remember it fell on Columbus Day - I was allowed to go because I didn't have school. It was general admission and my father and I got there so early I got to sit in the lower level directly behind the goal for the first time. It was fun - I might even still have the stat sheet from it at home somewhere...I'll check and take a photo of it if I do.

You really think Greene has the hardest shot? I would have maybe gone with Volchenkov or maybe even Kovy for that. Everything else I'd agree with except maybe Elias might be the best skater on the team rather than Kovy. Also, it could be argued that Elias might have a more consistently accurate one timer and therefor would be the best, but it's hard to not pick Kovy on that one.

Greene was clocked at 96 back at the AHL skills competition. I'm not sure if Kovalchuk would be harder, he may get a 98 or so.

The Devils did this in the 1999-2000 season. Tickets were like $10 each. I will have to dig out my stub. There were two honorary coaches, Danny Aiello was one; I can't recall who the other was; I think it was a former player -- Bruce Driver maybe? I am pretty sure it was Sheldon Souray, not Stephane Richer, who hit over 100 MPH on the hardest shot competition. He, of, course, would go on to be traded away a short time later that season. The thing I remember most about that night was that I was amazed that so many fans came out to watch it; it wasn't advertised at all. I went home that night feeling that we had a really special team that year, and it turned out that we sure as hell did as they went on to win the Cup. It was a lot of fun.

I don't remember the one in 2000-2001 season.
