All-Star Suggestions

from Al Strachan at Fox Sports,

Two things happen every year at the All-Star Game.

The players get better. The event gets worse.

Next year, hockey fans get a break. There will be no All-Star Game because it’s an Olympic year, so the stars will be gathering in Vancouver instead.

But what should be done about the 2011 All-Star Game — if there is one — which is scheduled to take place in Phoenix?

First of all, let’s use the two-year window to study the situation and get some suggestions. Involve the hockey people, not just the marketing people and the lawyers. And although this may seem like a horrific suggestion to commissioner Gary Bettman and his friends, involve the fans.
