Surprised they didn't put Petey in the shootout competition, he drops Forsberg moves in regular season games like it's nothing anymore. Poor Luongo was never good at them, he's going to get lit up...

Similarly, McDavid should be one of the participants in the fastest skater, but he told the league to not put him there.

Am I blind, or is Bo not in any skills competition?

Players wear their team sweaters in the skills comp. ..... I believe Bo didn't want to embarrass the Canucks so asked not to be included 


Classy to the end
