The All Star Game is great for the kids but difficult to consume for the ardent hockey fan. So who's in, who's out?

Hockey is too depressing for me right now, I'll likely pass. Especially if MacKinnon ain't there.

I'm sure I'll grab some highlights on NHL Network afterwards, but I need a break from hockey. Practically all the teams I root for are sucking hard this year.

Sorry I'll go put away my violin now.

I don't think I have watched since Bourque retired.....seems like a waste of time to me. In this age of Twerker and Facebook, Instagram there are many ways to market your star players....this just seems a bit antiquated and unnecessary.

I was just happy to hear Tavares got booed.
I watched the "Finals" because I happened to sit on the couch. Tuned in halfway through.

Gotta admit I didn't watch it. I don't have cable at this point, and if I'm going to look up illegal links online, it's gotta be for a worthwhile game. This wasn't it. Usually I get my fill of highlights on Twitter, but I have to admit I've hardly seen anything.

I'm not ready to call for an ASG ban just yet. I think the game is good for the kids, good for marketing the game's stars and even if the game doesn't matter, it's a rare opportunity to see players from the other conference if you mostly watch your own team.

If nothing else, the ASG jerseys are selling like CRAZY in Denver. I'm hearing the ones for the Big Three sold out in record time. I assume they are selling well elsewhere also.

Had not idea that play is 3 on 3 now....when did they do that?

Also.....Ovechkin got suspended 1 Game for now showing up to the ASG! Couldn't they have just put him on DTD to get some rest? He's an old man after all and doesn't need to participate in that circle jerk.

I believe this is the 2nd year they've done that.

I'm kinda surprised they moved away from the players drafting their own teams so quickly.
