Kukla's Korner Hockey

The time has come to scrap the entire weekend.
If the lure of Montreal and the history of the Canadiens isn’t enough to save the event, nothing else will.
There will be no All-Star game next year anyway because it is an Olympic year. Why bother coming back in 2011?
The All-Star game already has been supplanted by the Winter Classic outdoor game as the centerpiece event of the NHL’s regular season. The league can build the outdoor game into an even bigger event and use it to showcase the sponsorship deals that usually are highlighted on All-Star weekend.
