All-Star Game voting for the HABS

So, at first I wanted the HABS to represent for the all-star game, but then I thought, I'd be just as happy if they didn't play, because the All-Star game is a farce, and I would prefer that my team gets to rest its star players. So, I stopped voting, and am considering voting for our players competition to make sure that they don't get in, at least on fan voting. What does everyone else thing about this? Should we perpetuate an organized campaign to NOT get any of our players on the roster?

That is one of the most ass-backwards suggestion i've ever seen.

I just remember the whole post Olympics situation, and although the Olympics is way more intensive than the AG, who needs our players to represent ... it is good for rookies to feel good about themselves, but the AG is the worst hockey ever, and I'd prefer our players don't participate. Give them a nice long weekend to get some tan action or something.

The all star game is basically an excuse to party and rest up with your friends on other teams. This is silly.

Look i think everyone gets where you're coming from. It's just that it's incredibly ****** and selfish. It's just not what a fan would or should do. Plus, these guys love going to the all-star game. It's a party for them, an occasion to get together and be silly. PLUS, it's not like they're forced to go, plenty of players have refused to go to the all-star game before. Just leave that decision to the players.

That's how the Leaf's players look at the playoffs, too.

I doubt it is as simple as that. Players may feel compelled to go, whether or not they have friends who will be attending. For example, I'm pretty sure if Lucic makes it, he won't have any friends there.

Anyway, since I don't care about the All Star game, I will definitely stop voting. I can't see it being of any benefit to our teams success.

Players chosen for the allstar game seem to be resting allright.

Would vote if there was a 'who cares about the all-star game - period' option....

I know the all-star game has become quite cheesy. But I still look forward to seeing it every year.
