Stars Coming To Atlanta
The biggest names and the best stars that skate around on the ice are going to be making their way to Atlanta on January 26. This is due to the NHL selecting Altanta as the host of the 2008 NHL All Star Game. The two day event will take place January 26-27 and the folks in Georgia are ready. We want to prove to some of the northern states and Canada that we have a little bit of puck knowledge here in the Dirty South.
The Atlanta Thrashers will be represented in the All Star Game and look for Ilya Kovalchuk and Marian Hossa to get some of the biggest roars from the hometown fans. I think the SuperSkills competiton is better than the actual All Star Game. I like seeing how these guys compete against each other in some of the challenges they have to do individually. You get to see which guys have the most speed on the ice and just which NHL All Star has the best control of the puck. They get to launch pucks at targets that will be placed in the nets. You don’t get to see this in a normal NHL Game, so its a chance to let the fans see what these guys really do have. If your wondering who can shoot the puck the hardest, then tune in to the SuperSkills competition from Atlanta and you can find out which player strikes the puck best. These puck speeds will get up around 100 mph and it shows you just how strong and fast these guys are. I wouldn’t want to be an NHL Goalie with pucks traveling at me; with speeds around 100 MPH. Pads or no pads, that’s gonna hurt!
I will give my prediction for the All Star Game that will take place at Phillips Arena (where the Atlanta Thrashers play) on Sunday January 27th. I have to go with the Eastern Squad of All Stars and I think they will notch two more goals than the Western NHL All Stars with a final score being in the double digits for the East.
Western Conference All Stars 9
Eastern Conference All Stars 11
