Sens soft in Super Skills

That wasn't really the greatest demonstration of the Sens' super skills, but it was pretty exciting nonetheless.

Jason Spezza got to do two things: stickhandle through a couple of pucks, and then pass the puck to the accuracy-shooters. Lame. Although he did both very well. It would have been sweet to see him pass to Dany Heatley for the accuracy showdown, just like the regular season.

Daniel Alfredsson, by contrast, did one measley thing. Accuracy shooting. And he didn't do well, going 2-for-8. But don't be fooled, Alfie's got a hell of an accurate shot; just ask Scott Niedermayer's left knee.

I think Alfie threw the conpetition so that if Niedermayer questions him, he can say, "What? There's no way I could have aimed at you, look how bad I was in the accuracy shooting competition!"

I want to mention how awesome I think it is that Tim Thomas looked to be having the time of his life. It's refreshing to see these guys, especially the goalies, enjoying themselves at this competition instead of treating it like an unpleasant chore.

Apparently Spezza's going to be on a line with Alexander Ovechkin and Martin St. Louis in the game, which could be cool. Alfie is still alongside Vincent Lecavalier and I guess Evgeni Malkin instead of Sidney Crosby.
