Entries with the tag: 2009 nhl all-star game
It’s been a week now since the All-Star Game was played, the heroes returned to their teams, and Montreal returned to a slightly less exuberant heartland of hockey.
There were cheers and jeers all around, at the rink and hundreds of miles away, for the event, what it stands for, and all that it cannot hold a torch to.
I was fortunate enough to be welcomed into the event by the League, with all the access and privileges of the mainstream media.
Without a doubt — and not just because it was the first time I donned media credentials — the weekend will forever rank amongst my most cherished hockey memories, and always it will remind me why there is a need for an event such as this.
