Yeah, I prefer the rookie game than having them play in the skills comp. That, the shootout challenge at the end and the hardest shot are the only reasons to watch the skills comp really. Shame they got rid of it.
yeah I know they had the Allstar game on that day. They usually had the rookie game the day before before the skills competition. But this year I didnt see it. So after the festivities, I asked the question about the rookie game cause IF it was going to be on, the only shot it had anymore was ON THE DAY OF THE ALLSTAR GAME.
Its a shame. I LOVED the Draft idea. Very entertaining but I rather see the high end rookies battle it out.
Gives you some idea of the western rookies you dont get to see all the time and even some eastern conference rookies you may not know about too much cause you only follow YOUR team.
Oh well. Atleast we HAD A all star game this year. Last year we didnt and I wasnt really feeling that. As a Organization such as the NHL we need ALL THE FAN FARE WE CAN GET to battle with NFL and MLB and the such.
