I absolutely agree. The all-star game is made to generate casual fan interest and yet nothing generates general fan interest more than putting your country's pride on the line for 1 big international match. This is a proven recipe for success.

The all star game just isn't that interesting anymore. As a kid, I remember it being a big deal, but now it's kind of a waste of time.There needs to be serious bragging rights involved. Seeing it done in a "Winter Classic" format would be so huge for the game. Not only here, but worldwide. Have the winner play every year. If the NHL gets anal about it, then they'd have to guarantee that either Canada or USA have to compete each year.

So:
2013: Canada vs. USA
- Canada wins.

2014: Canava vs. Russia
- Russia wins.

2015: Russia vs. USA (then invite the other hockey nations: Finland, Czechs, Sweden, etc)
