One can only hope. But seriously, how many trades come as a result of an ASG?


As in, watching on-ice chemistry? Probably not many. Because of all of the team representatives being in one place for the whole weekend? A large number.

I believe that if the Wings can right their road woes, Datsyuk is gonna fly past Malkin for the scoring lead and solidify his first Hart Trophy. Although this is just the ASG, when the voters vote for the Hart, this will be in the back of thier minds that he went first overall in a fantasy draft amongst the elite of elite players in the NHL...We are witnessing the birth of not just a Detroit superstar but an NHL superstar that FINALLY gets his just deserts...

I wasn't surprised Datsyuk went no.1 when I found out Chara gets the top pick. After that game in November when he took down Datsyuk and his helmet, Pavel goes back down the ice and takes a hit at Chara, a guy twice his size. Also, even though Datsyuk wouldn't be number 1 on a lot of fantasy/media picks, the players in the league know exactly how good Pavel Datsyuk is on the ice. He's the best all around player in the league today and along with Lidstrom, are the most respected in the game.

Saw on NHL network today that Datsyuk apparently won't be in the breakaway relay. :blink:

Is he just being shy about this? He'd be the whole reason to watch that event.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

He's doing the shootout, along with Malkin and Iginla. Should be interesting.

I love this quote..."Never in my life was I picked first. Ever since I was a child playing pick-up games, I was picked closer to the end or dead last. Finally, I know what guys feel and experience when they get picked that early."

How humble...

Bummed he's not doing the shootout... or pretty much any of the other events. What's the point in only letting a couple guys do each event? Or am I reading this wrong...

He's doing the elimination shootout and the puck control part of the relay. Kinda weird he's not doing the breakaway challenge but I guess they have to use everyone for something so maybe he couldn't do it all? Hopefully he does well in the elimination shootout because then he'll get some time to show his stuff. I wonder if he'll go with his 'safe' moves or if he'll pull out something different to wow the crowd?

Pavel is probably a little too reserved to try the really wacky stuff they are hoping to see in that particular shootout event.

And Gaborik is reportedly not doing the fastest skater challenge. I thought he could challenge Mike Gartner's long standing record in that event.

Maybe these guys just want the younger players to take these events.

Gaborik is trying to avoid injury at all costs given his track record. :lol:
