I am attending my first ASG (probably my last one too). Any Ranger fans in attendance?

Both nights. section 308, row Q, seats 1-3
Stop by and say hello. Name is Nat. I'll probably be sitting next to two people with Atlanta jerseys on though so don't get weirded out by the presence of those cornflower blue shirts.

where are you two sitting?

Even if I lived in Atlanta, I would hardly even consider it. It's just too boring and it's not the sport I love.

Thank you Captain Obvious. We're also, if we go deeper, in a ASG thread, meaning we're discussing the All Star Game. That's not hockey, that's a PR stunt with a bunch of players goofing around in hockey gear. And then I don't even have to go to "it's not the best players in the league on the ice", which is the whole purpose of this stunt. It was boring before, but at least it was some kind of honour to the players presenting, but now... it's not even that.

I think there's a reason players like Luongo and Brodeur bails out. They don't think it's worth it either, the rest is more valuable.

Agree with Chimp. Its much more of a spectacle or event than it is a hockey game.

Nothing wrong with that though.

I was at MSG for the ASG in 94 and have the official 45th anniversery poster on my wall (framed).Its one of my favorites.

I guess its for kids.

I liked it alot back in the 80's when i was growing up a huge hockey fan. Not like Ranger fans had much to cheer for in the 80's, those all star teams were dominated by Isles, Oilers, Flyers, etc. Then again, Don Maloney won the MVP one year ! But really it was all about seeing the stars of the other teams. Back then it was rare to get to watch a game with ANY of the leagues stars unless we were lucky to get those channel 9 games against teams like Edmonton. In Brooklyn, we had no cable so we had no ESPN. The only hockey highlights we saw were local teams on the local news.
