i turn on the ASG and soon hear that Ovi tripped over the blueline. I am just going to assume it was talk about the winter classic.

He coughed up the puck and threw his stick in the way, resulting in a missed penalty shot.

Considering some of his flubs, it's safe to assume he was probably hung over.

It is when it's used conveniently. Mostly joking....but I was raised by a "there are no reasons, only excuses" military dad.

Well, the only take away I have regarding Ovechkin from that game is he looked like he was having more fun than he has all year. Maybe we'll get to see the Ovie that's having fun on the ice more so from here on out.

That's what I saw too.. His "job" for an ASG is pretty much to entertain the crowd, and I thought he did a good job of it.. Im sure alot would of liked to see him lay out someone, defending one of his behind the back-off the board-bank pass attempts, but that would of probably been frowned upon by the NHL execs and players..

Everything about All Star Weekend was delightfully cheesy.

Figured I'd add my observations about the ASG.
- draft was good for fans to have something to talk about
- skills: pretty good format
- the game: time for financial incentives, like I believe txpd suggested; otherwise still like NA vs the World the best of all formats.
- overall: the talent and personalities just seemed so watered down this year. I kept doing double-takes -- wow, that guy is an all-star?!
