The Unique Qualities Of The ASG

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

Every year the game is played and every year the same questions are asked. What can be done to make it more competitive? What can be done to make it more relevant? What can be done to make it more like a real NHL game?

And here’s the answer. Nothing. There’s nothing that can be done; nothing that will turn the all-star game into a showcase event that captures hockey’s best qualities.

You can hope for some speed and skill and a close, competitive affair, but you can’t replicate those things that make the sport attractive.

Once you accept this, you are free to appreciate this affair for what it is and even revel in its unique qualities.
