All Star Format Changed to 3-on-3 Tournament

Recommended Posts

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-all-star-game-scraps-format--is-now-3-on-3-divisional-tournament-025040619.html

 

So, we're going to see teams based on divsion play 20-minute games, 3-on-3 tournament style.  It got me to thinking what type of teams we would see, so I threw this together.  Also, I figured we'd still have the "one representative from each team" rule, which made this a bit tough to put together.

F  Crosby (PIT)

F  Tavares (NYI)

F  Giroux (PHI)

Gotta hand it to them on creativity. Why not, the All Star game isn't really hockey to begin with, might as well open it up wide.

I've been playing around with the lineups again since it's been about a month, and the one thing I can tell is that there are going to be plenty of snubs due to the "all teams must be represented rule".  This is especially true for the EC teams since they have to use 8 teams to fill 11 spots (6 forwards, 3 defensemen, 2 goalies).

 

Also of note, John Scott of the Coyotes is gaining a lot of internet troll votes, so he'll be taking a spot away from someone who truly deserves it.  He has even said he doesn't want to be a joke all-star.

Surprised no one talks about the goon Scott being voted in.

 

NHL then asked him to not attend, he refused. Then Phoenix dealt him and Montreal demoted him to the AHL.

 

All-Star game really isn't fun anymore and needs to be abandoned but this is a mess.

It's a mess, but if the league wants the fans to vote for players, then it should be willing to accept who they vote in.  The fact they asked him not to attend is utterly classless.  The trade, the demotion, i won't speak of those.  But asking him not to attend?  Tacky.  Very tacky.

It is a mess. No matter what the motive of fans they had a vote and they used it. The league has to honor that and it appears they will. It doesn't excuse the shenanigans that appear to have gone on to keep him out.

 

I lost interest in the all-star game a couple of seasons ago.
