That Skills Comp had it's moments. I really enjoyed the Breakaway Challenge, Ovechkin was definitely the star of the show in that event. Chara's blast in the Hardest Shot was very impressive, though I was surprised to see that Lecavalier could shoot it that hard.

The 3 on 3 YoungStars game was very fun to watch, all those breakaways were fun to watch. Legace did a good job in that game, but the kids put on a great show.

AO was really entertaining!

Here is a vid of his breakaway shots...

I do hope though that for the fastest skater competition they go back to the 1 full lap with 1 player starting on each side. The short sprints just weren't that exciting to watch.

Hmmm the numbers aren't that bad for the contest from Fanhaus:

"The good news is that the NHL All-Star Game drew a 0.8 rating, up 14 percent from the 0.7 last season with 796,717 viewers. The bad news is that the Canadian Press decided to provide "context" to those numbers by citing ratings for the NBA All-Star Game -- as much a cultural event as it is a sporting event -- and the MLB All-Star Game, which is on broadcast television rather than cable.

Ratings were strong where you'd expect them to be strong: Buffalo (3.3), Pittsburgh (3.0), Detroit (2.8), Philadelphia (2.2) and Minneapolis-St. Paul (2.1)."
