Whatever your stance is on the NHL All-Stars — maybe you have kids who love watching guys score 20 goals skating at five miles per hour — this year’s edition of the All-Stars took a lot of wrong turns. Especially for a Canucks fan, there is not a whole lot of reasons to watch this weekend.
So why not try out the AHL All-Stars? Check out Hunter Shinkaruk in case he makes the NHL next year! Just watch for the sake of watching Daniel Sedin and see if he and Jaromir Jagr get some extra respect from Captain John Scott.
And lastly, look forward to the month ahead. It is the NHL trade deadline month and it might be the month that decides the Vancouver Canucks’ fate.
Here is some more breaking news from the NHL on the All-Star games. Seems like we all have fewer reasons to watch.
And when a player misses the All-Star Game, he is suspended one regular season game. Ridiculous, but not too unreasonable, I guess.
Other things to ponder over the break:
- Who is more of an All-Star? Ryan Miller or Jacob Markstrom?
- Is it a blessing for Henrik Sedin to be not playing at the All-Stars?
- Is the All-Stars worth the trouble anymore?
Hope you survive. See you at the end of the tunnel, folks.
