Pierre LeBrun of ESPN answers some rant mail…
As a Preds fan, I gotta say I’m a little upset that Columbus has been given the ASG for 2013. Really, rewarding a franchise for ineptitude by staging the ASG there? Oh, that’s right—the League did the same thing for Atlanta in 2008. I hope Nashville gets consideration for 2014. The new convention center will be open by then (modeled after Boss Hog’s outhouse) and Nashville has a great party atmosphere right outside the arena doors. This could really rock—the League needs to make this happen.
My take: My understanding is that it’s exactly because the convention center would not be completed in time that Nashville didn’t get it for next year. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is on record saying Nashville will one day get one and in the not-too-distant future. There won’t be an All-Star Game in 2014 because of the Olympic break but my money would be on Nashville for 2015.
