I cant remember, but are just "all stars" in the skills competition?

I seem to remember that there were non-all stars at one point in this? Maybe not.

Anyways, I think that for it to be a "real" skills competition that all players should be allowed to compete. Most players who aren't all-stars probably want the time off anyways.

The way it is now it's just a gimmick and doesn't really mean anything. It is fun to watch though.

Allstars only, Matt. I'm sure though, that some punk could compete against these 'allstars' and whoop them at some of the skills, especially the accuracy shooting for example.
-I'll miss Gaborik's speed at the race around the rink.
-You'd have to think that Jan Bulis, if invited, could hit all 4 targets in 4 shots! :)
-As far as 'all players competing', it would be great if all of the individual team skills competitions (from before the season starts)were documented further and compared throughout the League. Maybe then a showdown could be done with the Final top 5 at the Allstar Game. Ok, that wouldn't work either. We'd have to eliminate fans voting I suppose.

After the "Vote For Rory" campaign this year, they just might eliminate fans voting.

I just dont want to hear the media saying after the skills competition "so and so has the hardest shot in the league", because it's not true. But I bet thats what they'll be saying.

Yes, they will!
I think Pierre McGuire was saying that Al MacInnis had the hardest shot ever when he introduced him in Dallas last night but that IS NOT TRUE. Al Iafrate has the hardest shot ever..in the skills competition that is.
