- i mean cindy continues to go year after year. Thing is, I highly doubt players on our team (with the exception of Pronger and Timonen who are/have been banged up) would turn down the opportunity - especially Carter since he had to be an alternate last year.
My guess is that unless the Flyers can play against Crosby in their NHL role as villain, the NHL could care less in advocating the goon-ridden flyer team (sarcasm)
If they would rather rest or heal I'm all for it. All Star game doesn't mean jack. Lifting the Cup over your head does.
And remember, a lot of times NHL players play hurt, even without us or their doctors knowing. So rest is a good thing.
