It wouldn’t be surprising to see other players withdraw before the Jan. 26 game. No-hit, three-on-three games don’t represent the sport. In the interest of promoting hockey, how about scrapping the All-Star game and instead requiring each team to set up a weekend of skills contests/clinics in their respective cities, with players joining kids from local youth teams? That would grow the game and strengthen community bonds.
