    Default 2020 ASG/Skills Competition

    Love that they are including a 3 on 3 women's game.

    Do not love that they are making a new event where players shoot from the stands. This sounds like it could go real bad.

    Seems like fun for a couple guys just hanging around in an empty arena.

    But I don't think the All-Star game is a good setting for this.

    If they want to do this.. get a hold of Dude Perfect and create a trick shot video with them!

    Yep just feels like it could go south real fast. Similar to that god awful passing obstacle course with the tiny nets.

    I like that they got rid of the weird team relay with the saucer paces that are just awkard when a passer goes cold.

    They also got rid of the weird puck up the puck lacrosse style and flip it through a pylon thing.

    I'll have it on in the background tomorrow. Shooting Stars (shots from the stands) will be really fun or really lame.

    Where's the McDonald's lawsuit?

    Are players calling shots?

    Maybe next year they add some fan interaction... Open a competition up for the best puck trick and have fans vote live from phones

    Talked to nhl.tv support, they aren't making the all star game available to subscribers. ****ing joke. Whatever, turns out it's on CBC.

    Moderately interesting theory: It seems that the hardest shot record doesn't get improved on nearly as much as it should. With constant improvements to equipment and strength training you'd think these numbers would be slowly creeping up but they don't really seem to be (or at least the winning # doesn't - I haven't looked at yearly averages)...

    Anyway, my thinking is that this could have more to do with accuracy of the technology used to record speed than actual shot speed. On a yearly basis of man vs man it should be a pretty good indication of who's best, but I have a hard time believing Al Iafrate was shooting as hard in the 90's as Weber is now, and his high #'s were likely generous. Maybe not?

    Just a thought. Maybe somebody knows something about the technology they use?

    Considering MacInnis just popped a 100+ mph shot at 56 years (think with a wooden stick too), stick technology might be actually be regressing when it comes to slapshot speed maybe? I honestly have no idea, just a thought.

    Very interesting take, and quite possibly right.

    On another note, this whole event has a real Hunger Games vibe to it, no? Players peeling off their jerseys, introducing old players, putting on masks, etc - it all feels a lot like the Hunger Games couple coming in on a flaming chariot against their will to impress the crowd...

    I found it lame. That being said, it was nice to see a somewhat sober Brett Hull.
