I'm trying to watch but I'm quickly falling asleep. Right now, it's the shootout competition (not the fancy one where Ovechkin put on a hat) but the straight-forward one. It's down to Hejduk, Doan and Savard. It entertains me as long as I'm on my computer doing other things.
Update: Down to Doan and Savard.
Earlier I watched Cogliano win the fastest skater. That was fun, for the 3 minutes it lasted. Oh, and I missed the hardest shot. Souray came third. The TV may have been on, but I don't remember watching. (That's how exciting this stuff is)
Update: Shane Doan wins.
Random fact: Shane Doan and Carey Price are cousins.
I've been reading a lot about how to make the NHL All Star game better. The best suggestion would be to have it in a tropical location. While I realize there's an interest in having it in NHL cities so that fans can meet the players, but the guys are going to be more hyped if it's like a holiday. (Though, for me, Montreal is a place I would holiday, but I'm not an NHL player.)
Hey there! I hope you all had a great holiday! I just thought I'd put up a quick post to congratulate Team Canada on their 5th straight gold medal at the IIHF Juniors -- especially the Oilers' own Jordan Eberle, who had an amazing tournament. And who is also hot. Nice work, fellas!
