The National Quebec team will be made up of Quebec-born NHL players and they will play the National teams of France, Switzerland and Italy. Yes those hockey powerhouses Italy and France will be invading Quebec.

The Converse All-Stars are all the rage with the kids nowadays, and I can see why when they have super cool designs like a cast of video game all-stars sewn on them. Mario and Luigi automatically up the cool factor of any sneaker. But can the NHL connect the dots and up the cool factor of their All-Star game?

Throughout the Taylor v. Tyler debate last year, there wasn't much mention of Jeff Skinner, but as we got closer to the 2010 draft we started to hear more about the offensive upside of the former Kitchener Ranger. The Hurricanes took him with the 7th pick and so far he has looked like an exceptional choice. Tonight we will see four of the top-eight rookie scorers in the NHL, and Skinner leads them all with five goals and 12 points.

Shawn Horcoff is listed as day-to-day with a left leg injury after clipping skates with Jack Skille during the Oilers 2-1 win in Chicago last night. Meanwhile in Oklahoma City, Linus Omark was putting on a clinic against the Toronto Marlies. Omark potted five goals in regulation and added another in the shootout to lead the Barons to a 7-6 victory.
Scoring five goals in any league will get you noticed, and I wonder how this performance will impact Omark's ranking in the organization?

Will Tom Renney put a shadow on Dan Cleary tonight? With the likes of Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg, Johan Franzen, Nick Lidstrom and Mike Modano, you might be wondering why Renney should even be remotely concerned about Cleary.
Well, he's an ex-Oiler who wears #11, this is the Oilers 11th game this year and he had three kids at the morning skate wearing Cleary jerseys. Ex-Oilers, specifically 3rd and 4th liners, have haunted the Oilers this season so Nikolai Khabibulin might want to pay a bit more attention when Clearly's on the ice.
