It strikes me a cheesy.Pick a franchise to host and let them host.

No!

Two different owners, it would be difficult to come up with an amicable way to split up the profits. And it could never truly be a shared ASG because it would be held at one of the two teams rinks. I am sure the Rangers won't want to share anything with their red headed step-brother the Islanders.

I can see the All Star logo though, Lady Liberty's head on Captain Highliners body.

Does the host team get the profits?

The article is suggesting that they share the All Star Game, so both teams would spend money, and share the profit.

If Isles is bought by Ratner and group why not? Dolan also owns the Rangers anyway.

It would be cool to see for sure.

the problem i see is actually the isles. They would feel they are in line ahead of NYR for an all-star game of their own. They last held it in 1983, while the rangers had it in 1994. Add in the fact that they will actually be in a new arena and location, not a renovated one, and the isles would feel 'due' an all-star game pretty soon.

Am too young to remember when it was a charity event hosted by the Stanley cup winner of the previous season. But they should bring that back.

If two teams shared the same arena, sure.... but not getting the logic of splitting it up (and potential revenue) between different locations owned by different sites.

At least the Dallas example makes sense, as it's one team hosting but they're taking advantage of a new and significantly larger venue for the main festivities.

If, hypothetically, they wanted to make the All Star Game an outdoor event and the Isles and Rangers hosted at Yankee Stadium, I could see that. But having it at MSG and Barclays just seems pointless to me.

I understand the logic. Two venues within the city of New York sharing spotlight of all star game is cool. IMO anyway. Being able to go from one arena to another in 15 min by subway.

Not really I don't think, just the other way around.

It's the event and location not the arena that makes it. An event in the biggest NA city with a new arena should prevail.

Whenever I watch a Jets game on TV I can't tell the arena is small. Same would apply here.

No, with the rivalry that exists between these 2 teams I doubt it happens.

Don't see any reason why it wouldn't happen. You guys really think a rivalry would get in the way of these places making money?

Because there is no need for it to happen. You can only play the game in 1 building, so pick one.

I can see Draft given to one and All Star given to another in one year time period though,

Yes because when you have hockey fans fighting each other at a combined All-Star game event, that would be bad media for the NHL.

We play on a television network called msg.
The hockey night live show features a devil, a ranger, and a Jaffe, or sometimes a Flatley
Spin the roulette wheel to find out which channel we are on any given night
You would have to turn 14 pages into the sports section of newsday(the long island newspaper) before you saw the islanders.to be honest not biased, it is usually more than 14 pages. I think because of the mention of playoffs we were ahead of baseball.Today we were after the possibility of Miller leaving
Buffalo article.
The rags traded up in front of us in 08 to take Marc staal and we got a dud.( just venting)
I went to the 1983 game at the coliseum when I was a kid.We did just fine without help from the rangers.
The islanders and rangers should never ever co- host anything
We may have a Wang but you have a Dolan. Enough said, my meds are kicking in
LETS GO ISLANDERS!!!

Dumb

MLB has two asg for the Yankees and Mets, why must the NHL continue to force unconventional dumb ideas (re alignment, 6 outdoor venues)?
