Just the Elimination Shootout? ...That's it?

The NHL released the rosters for the Superskills competitions today, and that was the first thing I checked out when I hopped onto the computer. I scanned through quickly to see if Vanek was participating in anything...

...And it looks like he's only doing the Elimination Shootout.

Really, Thomas? Listen, I know I said you shouldn't do the breakaway challenge because it wouldn't turn out well for you, but...there's really nothing else you could sign up for? Of course, looking at the different competitions, nothing really suits the kind of player you are. To be honest, I'm really disappointed. I was looking forward to the skills competition (don't get me wrong, I still am), but the guy I was looking forward to seeing the most - my favorite player - is only doing one thing. How cool. ):

Okay, I shouldn't be mopey about this, but I am. Sue me.

Oh dear Dani, I certainly hope so!

The fewer the competitions the less likely he will get injured...

That's true, Jill...I wasn't even thinking about injuries. We want him to stay healthy and not have something stupid happen to him during the All Star festivities.
