Still don't like the uniforms, but don't hate them as much as expected. I miss the days of the black and orange sweaters in the all-star game.

proof the game is not worked: 0 points for Sidney.

Best part of the game was Dallas Stars goalie Marty Turco on commentary the whole 3rd period while playing goalie. They also had Brodeur on commentary during the 2nd period but his mic got destroyed by the puck on a Sourray slap shot goal.

Also got to give some props to my Lightning with Marty St Louis getting the first ever Tampa Bay goal in an All Star Game.

Anyone catch the interview with Edge? They asked him which NHL player he would pick as a tag team partner. He went with the obvious choice of Chara.

Didn't the XFL do something like that? I think it's a brilliant idea.

The NHL had a perfect opportunity to grab some new viewers by holding the game on Sunday, when the entire world is craving their football fix and just wants to watch someone get hit by someone else. Why, then, was this buried on a Wednesday night?

The best argument I heard is that the NHL, being a gate-driven league and a TV-rights league, did not want to lose home games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

That makes sense to me.

That seems awfully short-sighted. They could have had a chance to get more new fans (or more likey, "Hey, it's hockey! I remember that!"-fans) if the game was on a major network on a weekend, new fans who could've bought more future tickets.

It took me about five minutes to find VS on my television. So, it took me longer to find it than the time I spent actually watching the game.

No love for the All-stars pieman??

You know, I watch a lot of hockey with my kids now playing and wanting to watch and I must say that the All Star game last night and the Young stars game the night before were fun to watch. For the first time in a long time the player son the ice actually looked like they were having fun.

Smiling, laughing with each other, etc... All those things that one might think they would see from people playing a "game"!! We don't see that often enough in this Sports business world we now live in...

But that NEVER happens in an All-Star game. Scoring is up a bit, I believe, but I'll lay my life savings on the fact that NO other game this season will end 12-9 with no penalites called. That's why I've never been a fan of this argument:

The problem is that you get those fans hooked on a 12-9 back and forth free flowing game, and then the one that they buy tickets for is 2-1 and they're turned off again.

I would like to have a few words with that lady who decided to improvise on the Canadian national anthem.

The game itself was what I expected of an All-Star game. No hitting, no defense. It was entertaining enough.

I like the new style jerseys, but my fear is every beer-bellied fan wearing one and pushing the stretch of the material to its limit.

I dunno. I think you're not giving a potential fan enough credit. Except for baseball EVERY All-Star event is severely lacking contact and defense, and I think the average sports fan knows the difference when they are watching an All-Star game. You can understand the physicality of hockey by watching the highlights on SportsCenter.

Any fan turned off because a hockey game ends 2-1 isn't going to be a fan, anyway.
