well first off, that players teamates would always be the first picks. Locker room chemistry demands it.

It's either going to be really cool or it's going to really suck. I don't think it will be anywhere near mediocre.

It's going to turn into Crosby and the World Vs. Russia and Ovechkin.

Quite frankly, anything is an improvement over the snoozefests we've seen forever. It grosses me out that Sid and Ovy will be the captains, but maybe it'll make it more fun to watch.

The captains should be Teemu and Lidstrom this year.

I'd be cool with that. I liked the all star games better when it was NA vs. the World.

What makes it a snoozefest is still in place... the fact that they cannot do what NHL players do, hit.

I personally hate the concept and feel it cheapens the game. I'm an old school kinda guy I guess.

Just scrap the ASG... all that's going out there is the NHL whoring itself out to corporate sponsors.

Ayup. I think they should go back to the "Current Cup Champs vs. All-Stars" format. There would be hitting.

I wouldn't mind if they deep-sixed it, either.

It doesn't bother me so much with Ovie, but Sid being captain really makes me want to throw up. And it's gonna happen, and we all know it. ****......

On NHLlive they just proposed a odd number of players selected so when they did the "draft" there would be one player who wouldnt make the game. Kind of like a game of pond hockey. I actually like it. cruel maybe, but great idea none the less IMO

If Crosby and Ovechkin are captains, who picks Richards, or does he get picked last, by default?

I like the skills competition the most. Thats where I learned Carter is very fast even though he looks like he isn't trying.

True enough.

I wish they'd just make the all-star game an outdoor game. If it's gonna be pond hockey, then make it real pond hockey!

Thankfully, the OHL has scrapped it this year (hopefully permanently).

Crosby's team will get a power play every 2 minutes in the game.

Honestly, I would like to see how this works out. Also, no more gouging for one team (I'm looking at you you ****ing Habs fans in 2008). What would make me happy is, is if Richards got picked, and became the captain and had to captain Crosby again, like he did in the minors. Man, that would make me smile so much !

And yes, I posted this at work... and I don't know if I should be doing this .

It is a real AHL or ECHL game. It was, and I am not making this up, "Rod Blagojevich Prison Outfit Night"
