Briere and Giroux Have Skillz That Killz

I don’t know which skills competitions The Roommates will take part in, so here’s a few predictions for each event, just in case:

Fastest Skater

  • Briere: He’s quick and shifty, but I don’t know if’ he’s built for a long race.
  • Giroux: Ditto. We know he can dipsy-do around anyone and leave ‘em in the dust, but a longer race might not be his strongest suit.

Breakaway Challenge

  • Briere: Creative. Enough to win it, maybe. Prediction: He sells the goalie on a backhand finisher and the drops it in with the forehand.
  • Giroux: He does something so magical, someone dies and goes to heaven because they can’t take it. He’s got a huge opportunity to win it.

Accuracy Shooting

  • Briere: He’ll probably nail the top targets with ease. Bottom targets will be slightly harder. I’d bet it takes 7 shots total.
  • Giroux: He doesn’t score a ton with his wrister. It’s not limited to 8 shots anymore, so I’d say it take him 9 tries.

Skills Challenge Relay

  • Briere:  He’s got very quick hands, and although he’s got some great puck handling skills, I think I’d set him up for the passing portion of the even.
  • Giroux: His puck control skills are so good I’d have him make the cones look silly by doing the stick-handling portion of the event.

Note: This event is new so you might have no clue what I’m talking about. The NHL site has a great demo videoto edumakate u.

Hardest Shot

  • Briere: Might surprise us, but not with enough force to win it. I’d guess something like 94MPH, maybe as high as 97.
  • Giroux: He’ll clear 90, but he’s not a threat to win this one either. Then again, he can use his Black (and Orange) Magic to trick the timer into thinking he sent a 110MPH screamer.

Elimination Shoot Out

  • Briere: He’s got a great chance to win this event. He’s scored a ton of shootout goals in pressure situations.
  • Giroux: He’s even trickier, and can easily win it as well.

Note: Another newbie. Here’s the vid.
