The All-Star Game is more-controversial this year than it ever has been thanks to the fan vote fiasco and John Scott. Adding to the garbage is that Brandon Saad won the breakaway challenge fan vote for the All-Star Skills competition, despite Dylan Larkin leading the voting for most of the time it was open.

Well don't worry a bit about Mr. Larkin being kept out of the festivities because he's going to go in the competition that probably makes the most sense for him out of all of them.

of course, we've already seen Larkin go head-to-head against Karlsson in a speed battle and... well it didn't go well for Karlsson.

Saad, Karlsson, and Letang are all burners in their own right, but I like Dylan's chances here. what are your thoughts?
