Datsyuk and Howard’s Role in the Skills Competition

Tonight’s the all-star game’s skill competition and we’ve got two skilled participants involved.  So what will they skills will they be showing off? 

Hit the break to find out.

Somewhat surprisingly, Jimmy Howard will be skating for Team Chara in the fastest skater competition.   I’ve never really considered whether he was a good skater or not.  

Datsyuk won’t be doing the breakaway challange.   But he will be doing the puck control section of the relay race.  And he’ll be a shooter in the elimination challange.  

It’s a shame that Helmer won’t be doing fastest skater.  I’d like to see him blow the doors off everyone out there.  Hossa v. Helm?  HA!

Starts tonight at 7 PM; it usually is worth a laugh or two.
