If people didn’t know beforehand about the fishing line, I dare say they’d think that there was some sorcery afoot. Still, that was a pretty clever trick by Vladimir Tarasenko of Team Sergei Fedorov in the KHL Skills Competition. Totally unfair, but clever nonetheless.
All in favor of abolishing every professional hockey All-Star game and replacing it with nothing but a skills competition raise your hand. I promise it’ll be more of this type of trickery and fun, and less of the high scoring, yet completely boring, All-Star games we’ve come to know and hate.
