The Malik Report

Citizen’s Ken Warren suggests that the NHL shouldn’t have allowed Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom and Anaheim Ducks forward Teemu Selanne to have skipped the All-Star game, arguing that both players are guilty of dereliction of duties which both players must fulfill:
They are two of the very best hockey players who ever played at their positions. They’ve done wonders in making the NHL a truly international league. If they ever retire, they’ll quickly find a place in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
All that aside, though, why has the NHL allowed them to become bigger than the game? Or, more precisely, bigger than the All-Star Game?
In case you somehow missed it, Lidstrom and Selanne won’t be coming to Ottawa for All-Star Game festivities in just over a week.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
