I just don't want us to get the homer reputation that the Pens and Avs broadcasters have.
Is the 3-stars of the game biased this year? Yes.
Did Andrew Ladd deserve a nod over Crosby in the Pens game? Yes. He scored the game winner. Crosby probably should have been the 3rd star.
Did Tavares deserve a star? Also, yes. He scored 3 points and gave the Islanders a point when they probably didn't deserve one.
I wouldn't read too much into it though. It doesn't really effect the business of hockey or very much else to be honest.
