Ah okay gotcha, thought you were pullin my leg there. It's funny, because it gets worse than this.

Dunno if you remember this from last season:

YouTube - Brad May's Disallowed Goal 11/18/09

Oh look, there's the puck in the net! No goal!

I'm rather enjoying the new setup of the NHL all-star game. I mean, at first sight it looked pretty stupid, but it's rather ballsy of the NHL to attempt such an unorthodox style of selection. I like it though, it's innovative to say the least.

The only downfall is that there isn't a single Panther on the roster, as the NHL has removed the pity-rule Not to say the Panthers deserved anyone, as this season it's been all contributing players and no stars (and not contributing enough, at that).

There's another unrepesented team, I cant remember who.

But easily the story of the All-Star news, in my opinion, is the fact that Philly is being represented by only 1 player, and I believe that was Claude Giroux. What a joke.

It was Giroux. The big snub was Briere.

Almost as bad as shunning Jose Bautista from the HR Derby in my opinion.

Plus you have other rejects in Pronger, Carter, Timmonen, and Richards. Obviously it gets debatable at that point, but Philly deserves the benefit of the doubt considering they are the most successful team in the East (and again, the pity system was done away with, so why should there be any excuses).

Briere got suspended earlier this year and the guy choosing the team was the disciplinary guy. Even Briere said he thinks that has something to do with it.

But at the end of the day, who really cares about the shitty All-Star Game?

I don't. I prefer players not making the All-Star game because I view All-Star selections simply as a negotiating tool for players.

I always enjoy the young stars game...

but yeah, the NHL all-star game and events are lame anyways. I do enjoy the all-star break in baseball though.

It's funny because the ASG is supposed to be a showcase of the league's best talent, but it's actually probably the worst game of the year because no one hits and no one wants to get hurt.

That and the skills contest are great. I can remember a bunch of skills performances from years past but not much at all from the actual AS game itself.

24/7 was such an amazing commercial for the NHL for America...I hope they continue to push their brand in meaningful ways (like through that McDonalds partnership) rather than, oh, uh, you know, the Coyotes or Thrashers or Predators or Panthers.

Also:

1) Grab some Kleenex

2) Go here: Episode 4

3) Play from the 30:00 mark

HOLY SHIT.

Funny... the Panthers lose 3 heartbreaking OT games in which they should've won and had the early leads.

But they sill go 3-0-3 in a 6 game home stand, and gain 9 of 12 possible points.

Comedy.

Scott Clemmensen makes the save of the night versus Toronto on Tuesday, Booth makes the shootout goal of the night, and Keaton Ellerby makes the hit of the night, all versus Toronto (yet we still lose).

In Toronto, mind you. And somehow 3 plays from hockey make Sportscenter, and none of them make it. Incredible.
