The clock is expiring quickly on the 2013 @BlueJacketsNHL ASG.
I'm not a big fan of the actual All-Star game itself, but having one in Columbus is pretty cool and great for the city.

That said, I'd rather they go ahead and cancel this year's and hopefully we'll get it back in 2015. Even if this lockout ended tomorrow, I'm not really thrilled about celebrating the NHL and its 'stars' this year anyways.

At this point, I think the quality of players would undoubtedly be dramatically reduced. The marquee players would find a way to bail due to the compressed schedule and the chance to stick it to the NHL. It would probably be mainly players on ELC playing in the AHL right now. While I think that would actually make for a better game, I'd still prefer to just axe the game and wait for the next one.
