    So the East beat the West 15-11 when all was said and done. Can't really complain given the level of talent. But did anyone else see how poorly Ovechkin did? I wonder what caused the near stumbles and sluggish pace.

    Youngstars game was kind of boring, but I expected that. Getzlaf was pretty funny, at least..

    About Ovechkin, they had to resort to using a stopwatch during the fastest skater comp. He looked a lot faster than 15 seconds! That shootout attempt, though...it made me laugh.

    The skills comp. was missing the breakaway relay, it really didn't seem as good as other years...it also needed more Timonen.

    They all seemed a little mystified about the rules in one of the competitions.
    I can't think what it's called, but it's the one where there are three players v the goalie and they have to pass at least twice and shoot within five seconds.
    It seemed as though they weren't getting their shots off in time.

    The new style of jersey wasn't as bad as I imagined.

    That is the dumbest competition. I can't see the point other than to embarrass the goalies.

    Exactly, JR.
    I don't think the puck should have been 'live' if it rebounded off the goalie either.

    I don't mind the jerseys as far as the fit of them goes.
    I did hear Minnesota might be switching to their third jersey which made me happy because it's my favourite jersey of any team.

    Oh, my JBo was just introduced.
    I love him.
    LOVE him

    He was the first one introduced, Fluff, and I thought of you.

    I know that they're introducing them numerically, but in my mind the order is "hottest first".
    I can be such a girl at times

    Jesus, that woman singing the Oh Canada was dreadful.
    High definition did her thighs no favours in those tight pants either
    The two singing the SSB aren't much better.

    I thought I was watching American/Canadian Idol there for a moment. There were sound problems, and that might have been a good thing. Yes, what not to wear--high definition or not.

    As far as the hockey game, they act as though they are really playing.

    ETA: Really playing as Sakic just knocked Luongo's mask off with a high stick. And, that was his own teammate.

    It's been better than the Young Stars game so far.
    I think I could have gotten a goal in that game
