Never underestimate this organizations ability to embarrass itself.



Nevertheless I would hope that a new scoreboard was part of the bid.

the all-star game is boring and the skills competition is better on TV but this is still good for our team/city! And the best part would be the new jumbotron. How long have we had that?

dang straight, i was looking forward to my 3$ back.

Still, I agree, it's a sign of respect from the league, and even though I find the all-star game a worthless waste of a weekend, it's nice to know it actually does make the rounds to cities that are long established hockey communites and aren't massively populated (by NHL standards).

Let's also keep in mind that there are 30 teams in the league today, it's not necessarily a slight that it took 20 years. It's less of a slight when you consider that the last two olympic years didn't have all-star games, and two were lost to lockouts. So, our Sens have only seen 16 all-star games, and we'll host the 18th.

Still, we have to get used to our lot... a lot of fans seem to still have the attitude that Ottawa is a poor small market team that gets overlooked. I was one pre-lockout. Nowadays with a strong owner and a strong dollar, we're closer to the haves than the have-nots. And while the league does bend over backwards to help some non-traditional market teams, it did the same when our team was threatened with relocation.

I'm sorry. I started with a joke and it turned into a rant. I do hope you take my point, though. I'm not saying it's most, I'm not even saying it's a lot, but some Sens fans in some posts above still seem to have the attitude that the league is out to get us, and I'm definitely not a fan of that mentality.

I don't think most see ottawa as a small poor market.Part of the probleam is ottawa is a small market but in alot of ways are expected to act like a big market.

Awesome! I'm pumped for the All-Star weekend festivities and the livelihood it'll bring to the city; especially the downtown core. I hope I get to bump into some of them while they're all here.

2012 would be the team's 20th anniversary and All-Star game. So hopefully we do get a new jumbotron.

Melnyk on the Team 1200 discussing this morning's official announcement of the Ottawa All-Star game in 2012. Unfortunately, the brilliant minds at the Team have let the usual american show that airs at noon play over Melnyk. Such pros!

Who cares what the scoreboard looks like? It works and does it's job... it keeps score.

The current jumbotron that the Ottawa Senators have is a little out of date when you compare it to other teams. When you have a new NHL event like this going on, you don't want people to think less of the team or organization and 9 out 10 times people judge appearance first.

People will be coming from different parts of North America and some do at Sens home games so why not invest in a new jumbotron? I think its about time. I really liked that Canucks one shown earlier in the thread.
