All-Star Weekend Predictions

Asg_medium

The NHL's brightest stars (and a few scrubs that were voted in by Québécois robots) will gather in Montreal this weekend for the 2009 NHL All-Star Weekend. Between the skills competition, sponsor events, press conferences, and trips to full-contact strip clubs, the NHL's All-Stars will find time to play a game of pond hockey on a network that most cable subscribers don't even know they have.

I thought it would be fun to make a few predictions for this weekend. Let's start with the Honda/NHL SuperSkills Competition.

 

Honda/NHL SuperSkills Competition

Versus will choose not to put a mic on an often injured, foul-mouthed goalie this year.

Cisco NHL Hardest Shot:  Zdeno Chara

Bridgestone NHL Fastest Skater: Jeff Carter

McDonalds Accuracy Shooting: Tomas Kaberle

Scotiabank Fan Fav Breakaway Challenge: Alex Ovechkin

Upper Deck NHL YoungStars Game: Rookies win the game & Steven Stamkos takes advantage of all the open ice and earns the MVP (if there is an MVP)

 

2009 NHL All-Star Game

This game will feature 17 goals and less body contact than a date with one of the Duggar girls.

Winner: Does anyone really care?

MVP: Sidney Crosby (the NHL needs its golden boy) Ilya Kovalchuk
