About the new format, I like it. It's a big marketing campaign to attract attention to the selection of the captains and the players they chose on their teams because the all star game doesn't get too much but it will still be interesting and fun imo
Lol I 2nd this let's do like we did 2 years ago and get the PHD line into the all star game.
The reaction around the NHL would be EPIC
They would say that some fans cheated during the process to remove X% of the votes for Pouliot, Halpern and Darche to make sure they are not selected. Then, all these votes would go to Crosby, Malkin and Ovechkin.
Everyone on Around the Horn and Pardon the Interruption said it was PRETTY inovative by the NHL to do such a thing, seeing as all the professional sports seem to be lacking a bit of something in their respective all star games
not only do i also think this is an absolute amazing idea, but im glad the NHL is possibly implementing it FIRST, and everyone on the shows said the NBA should and probably would follow suit very quickly
We have to at minimum get Halpern into the line up. I just think it'd be jokes. I thought it was going to be the kind of thing where there was like a "GM" of each team and they did the draft. I didn't know it was votes from people. The NHL is becoming a reality TV show lol.
