from Mike Brophy of the Hockey News at the Globe and Mail,
So Rory Fitzpatrick won’t be going to the NHL All-Star Game after all.
Say what you want about the authenticity of the game itself, and that it is an otherwise meaningless exhibition with no meaning other than a little payback to the league’s most valued sponsors, at the end of the day, it is still an honour to be selected to play in the contest. It is still something a retired player can look back on with pride: “Hey, I was identified as one of the best players in the league that one year.”
