Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
No one has been able to make the NHL All-Star Game a meaningful exercise for going on two decades now, no matter how much they tweaked and adjusted and tried to convince you that the light-hearted shinny they play bears even a reasonable facsimile to the way the game is played, night-after-night, through a gruelling 1,230-game regular season.
Given how that is not going to change this year either, even though the All-Star Game is being played in the cradle of hockey – Montreal – in January, I have little issue with the fact that Canadiens’ fans are doing such a good job of guaranteeing that all six of their candidates for the All-Star team may crack the starting line-up.
