Saturday Open Thread

In anticipation of tonight's SuperSkills competition, a classic Alex Ovechkin interview from last year's All-Star game in Dallas.
"... I think I'm good."

Elsewhere 'Round the Rinks:
Nicklas Backstrom featured on NHL.com. (He's been playing in the U.S. for eight months and is in the NHL YoungStars game, isn't it time for a nickname better than Bäckis?)....Pierre McGuire and Mike Milbury like Alex Ovechkin for the Hart Trophy....Ron Wilson loves the media....Slap Shot (not him) hates the All-Star game....The Sun News columnist who referred to the NHL as a "gaseous rumor" provides his phone number and email address in case anyone is interested enough to find out exactly what a gaseous rumor is.
