NHL Super Skills – from my perspective January 30, 2011

Okay, we’re ready for Super Skills! Huh. I could’ve sworn Tyler Ennis was a Sabre. #announcerfail

Fastest skater:

  • Skating an entire lap around the rink backward. I am really impressed by this. Maybe I shouldn’t  be, but I am.
  • Okay, I love that the goalies are doing the fastest skater competition.
  • The regular skaters are only a few seconds faster than the goalies. I find this hilarious.
  • Man, Green is SLOW.

Breakaway challenge:

  • Creative attempts, but not very successful.
  • LOVE PK Subban taking Jeff Skinner’s jersey to get the home crowd on his side.

Accuracy shooting:

  • I always wonder how it’s possible to be bad at accuracy shooting and still have a career in the NHL.
  • Heh. Daniel Sedin says “I don’t need my brother.”

Skills challenge relay:

  • Nice job on the stickhandling, Tyler Ennis!
  • Wow, that angle Daniel Sedin had in the one-timers was NOT easy. Unless he was Jochen Hecht.
  • Dan Boyle was pretty impressive with those ‘ittle bitty nets.
  • Alrighty then, Toews. Well played…

Hardest shot:

  • Did it ever occur to any of y’all that there are times goalies go “Arghhhhhh!” and duck due purely to instinct?
  • Brent Burns – 92.4 mph – really? And you call yourself a hockey player? Phpt.
  • Uh-oh, Chara’s lookin’ nervous… and he doesn’t beat Weber on the first try. Or the second one.
  • Oh, Rick Nash… a large human with a small shot.
  • DUDE. 105.9 mph. Okay, Chara, I bow to your shooting greatness.

And there you have it. Now on to the All Star Game tonight!

Pretty much sums it up. I’m not sure if Tyler Ennis was the fastest at the stick handling but he was easily the smoothest.
