This has got to be the biggest load of crap I have seen in some time. The game is entitled "ALL-STAR GAME." The name alone denotes who is supposed to be playing in the game - ALL of the Stars (not all of ONE TEAM). Just because the "fine" citizens of Canada have nothing better to do with their time then to send in their "votes" for their "precious" Montreal team, the rest of the NHL should not suffer. There are plenty of teams that have players who deserve to be in the ALL-STAR game.
The NHL needs to wake up and stop allowing themselves to be the laughing-stock of the "4-major sports." Oh well, what else can you do?
