In past NHL All-Star Skills Competitions, we have seen the likes of Ray Bourque, Mark Messier and Jeremy Roenick go four for four in the Accuracy shooting competition.
You might ask yourself, "Why doesn't an NHL super star hit four targets on four shots more often?" Well, when the spotlight is on you and you're trying to settle a pass from one of your peers, its not as easy as you might think. Add a 30-second timer and now it is even harder.
For the Sabres, I think Thomas Vanek could win this event. Not only does he rank third among the leagues top goal scorers with 28, but he has shown us numerous times this year he has tremendous patience and accuracy.
To say he would go four for four would be a bit of a stretch, seeing that only a few players have done it in the 19 years since the birth of the competition. But I think four for five or four for six is a safe bet with Vanek.
Other notables that may have a chance to win this event would be Jason Pominville, Derek Roy and Ales Kotalik.
