only if it decides finals home ice advantage like they do in baseball.

otherwise i dont see the point. This is more interesting and draws extra viewers/publicity.

Just get rid of the ASG all together. What a ridiculous waste of time that is.

This. I recorded it as I had to work the day it was on and upon watching it I fast forwarded through about 90% of it. It seemed cheesy and half-assed.

I wasn't a huge fan of the ASG, but when they went to players picking players, my interest got even lower. The team selection process makes for 90 minutes of light entertainment, but once the games start, who cares which players are on which team? And having teammates on different AS teams is just stupid.

ASG fixes:

1. West vs East (and winner does NOT get home ice advantage in POs)

2. Skills competition is more fun than the game. That needs to change - I'm not sure how, but game played by all that talent should be better than the skills competition.

3. Get a company other than RBK to design the ASG jerseys & logo. Design something I'd like to BUY some year. I'm not holding my breath.

Why should an All Star game decide the finals home ice advantage?

My interest level in the events is as follows:

1) Skills competition
2) Draft
3) Game


So cutting out the draft would VERY significantly lower my interest in the weekend. As in, I might watch 2 hours of broadcast instead of 5. I'm more likely than not to just record the skills comp and watch it a week later, and ignore the game altogether, rather than watching the draft live and then catching the other 2 events because I'm actually paying attention.

What they should really do, if they don't get rid of the ASG, is to bring back the SCF Champs vs All-Stars.

I hope you're joking. Making the ASG decide home field in the World Series was one of the most mindbogglingly stupid ideas in the history of professional baseball.

I'd prefer that the league go back to East vs West, but I'm fine regardless keeping it the way it is, too.

How does that work...NA cap can only pick NA'ers and World cap and only pick World? Then what is the point of the draft? The 23 NA All-Stars will be picked by NA captain and similarly for the World.

Right, let's just ignore the next President's Trophy winner potentially making the Cup finals because some team won an exhibition game. That's a horrible idea.

If the east do not play often from the west going by number of point is not that much more relevant.

Maybe use the result of the intraleague game if they exist ? or remove the home advantage in the final (like in football).
