Just voted. Does the NHL do any kind of adjustment for the population base of the player's team?

I guess it makes sense since they're really looking for eyeballs more than anything.

Oshie, gimme a break. 10 total points behind TT. Disappointed for TT but the overall rest will do him good.

Yah, that PO’d me big time...homerism at its finest

TT would have rocked with all that open ice. Oh well, supposedly he's nursing an injury, so let it heal.

Impressive speed and accuracy.  Congratulations Slavin!  

I saw him compete, but missed the ending - did he win?

Canada women team is 1:0 over USA after the first, thanks to their goalie. Great goaltending - can we sign her? :D

Al MacInnis at 56 with a 100.4 rip, I involuntarily laughed. That's insane for his age.

 

I couldn’t believe it either and said “Wow, sign him up” to Mrs. Storm.

I gotta say, the 3 on 3 tourney makes the All Star game watchable. It's also added to making OT far more interesting during the regular season. Might actually watch a bit before my night shift.

This game is a damn JOKE at how players are picked.  Holtby?  Really?  His save percentage is pure 💩.  And why do teams get more than two players while we get screwed?

I am sorry but I see AS games as snooze fests for all sports. 

Its interesting to watch the guys relaxed and being themselves instead of intense hockey players. But yeah the "action" is lame
