Last-minute alterations to the Honda NHL SuperSkills rosters are trickling in as we approach the start of Saturday's show.

In the previous post, we discussed the interesting wrinkle where the goalies will now take part in the fastest-skater competition.

Now, Chicago's Patrick Sharp, who leads the Blackhawks in goals, replaces New Jersey's Patrik Elias in the McDonald's NHL Accuracy Shooting competition

In the G Series NHL Skills Challenge Relay, Minnesota's Martin Havlat will now be a passer and Phoenix defenseman Keith Yandle will replace Havlat in the stickhandling portion of the relay. 

In the BlackBerry NHL Breakaway Challenge, Vancouver's Henrik Sedin is out, replaced by Loui Eriksson of the Dallas Stars.

You have 24 minutes to update your Skills rosters and make a last run to the fridge before the competition starts. Get moving!


Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
