the All Star Game and Pro Bowl within a 24 hour period might just be too much garbage sports for me to take, though.
There's an easy fix for that.

Don't watch the pro bowl.

My original point is that in fact it is not hockey. Your other examples feature players trying. The all-star-game does not feature players trying.

It used to be a great game many years ago, when the reigning Stanley Cup champs played a team of the best of the rest of the league.
This sounds amazing.

Competition explicitly asserts that both teams and all players want to win. The All-Star game is not a game, a sport, or a competition. It is entertainment of some sort but hockey it ain't.

If you're a hockey fan, you watch the all-star game.

That's fine but I doubt they go out there and intend to lose. So by your logic it would be hockey then.

When you shiny on the pond usually that's casual, do u not consider that hockey?

People on the pond try harder than the players will today. By a lot, actually.

If both teams were intending to lose it would be a form of sport, albeit a stupid one. At least there might be some effort being expanded.

If someone wants to watch today's exhibition, that is their business, but that will not alter the fact that there is no real game being played.

Without opening a separate discussion, I regard it like professional wrestling. The only difference is that there is some real effort in wrestling even if it is not a sport, either. That is why it is called an exhibition.

In today's sports world you can watch the stars from all the teams in the league through highlight clips on the Internet or an NHL television package like Center Ice. There's no having to wait for the one game a year that's the All Star game to see the superstars from outside your local teams and conference. I don't need to tune in today to see the Sedins or Weber or Couture because I can watch their games online throughout the season.

Also the game is awful for reasons already stated.

Normally I would say that because there are no slap shots or power plays in the All Star game, Stamkos would not be as effective, but this year he has shown much more versatility in his manner of scoring.

For the record, how was the kid passed on for the Canadian Olympic team?

If i'm the opposition, i'm more scared of the Perry-Malkin-Iginla line.

In a real game, that is. I suppose for an ASG... size isn't as big an issue.

I bet Girardi is going to go down and block a shot without realizing.

There's abit of chemitry with Gabby - Datsyuk - Hossa

Datsyuk has played with Hossa in 2009
Hossa has played with Gaborik in the Olympics
Datsyuk and Gaborik are good enough that they will dominate

That's what I was thinking too. It's on his DNA.
