Well honestly, Brown didnt do a heck of alot during the game to warrant recognition, and, of course, there wasnt a "hardest hit" competition on Saturday for him to demostrate his special skills.

Besides, wasn't it obvious how the whole weekend was geared toward everything being a Montreal Canadiens love-fest, as opposed to an NHL love-fest.

Think of this: How might the fans have reacted if Ovechkin had a Russian flag, or even an American flag, (not a canadian one) stuck in his cap when he did that stupid trick move with two sticks to win the Breakaway challenge? The props and gimmickery made the whole thing look cheap and contrived.

I'm sure it was blast for the players, but something needds to be done to make it more of a competition and less of a Televison spectacle.
