I've always liked Danny Briere. If I was going to bother to watch the farce, I would like to see him. As it is, nah.

Different rules for different people (teams, players). Welcome to real life, it's how things are.

I'd like to think that the dust-up caused by the suspensions last year has caused the NHL to back off it's hard-line approach towards players missing the All Star Game. If the NHL is so hell-bent on punishing players who skip the game then fine the bejesus out of them ($50k? $100k), put it toward the emergency players fund, and fill the slot with players who genuinely want to go. The players don't have to play if they don't feel up to it, the AS Game doesn't get players that don't want to be there, the NHL/NHLPA get some cash to take care of their own...it's a Win/Win.
And here out of the mists of history, the legendary esquilax. A horse with the head of a rabbit and the body of...a rabbit.

Always liked Briere. Good for him.

never liked Briere. Bad for me... :)

Not going to watch anyway.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

I'm pretty sure the Pro Bowl is played in Miami now. Also, it seems to me that the MLB All-Star game is the only one that the players really seem to honor.

This. Coupled with the fact that the winning conference gets homefield advantage in the World Series (even though I don't like this rule) makes for a good all-star game.
