Following the Jets Skills Competition we spoke with a couple of Jets players.
Patrik Laine: On what would have happened if he used Byfuglien’s stick. On the difference in flex between his and stick. On his accuracy shooting. Does he ever really use a “big” slap shot in a game? Getting to interact with the fans. Did he think his hardest shot would hold up against Byfuglien?
Chris Thorburn: Is it an event he looks forward to? Is it a fan thing or a camaraderie with teammates? On getting to relax in a public way? Does he have a formula for his success?
