Seeing as this whole ASG thing is a joke to begin with I was going to suggest we stuff the ballots with Leaf players. Why would be more funny than to have the starters from the worst team in the league.
The players are selected by each team staff with no limit on number of players from each team
Let the Skills Comp stay as the fan bonus (maybe the rookie game)
The winning conference are the home team in the Stanley Cup finals
Wow no. Maybe that works in baseball, but it wouldn't work in a physical game such as hockey. Fans and GMs alike don't wanna see guys getting injured in an All-Star game. It's also unfair for teams who fight for home-field advantage throughout the season, and especially the players not involved in the ASG.
