Actual goaltending in an ASG?  Maybe a million dollars makes a difference.  They might be on to something.

Honestly think it's not the money, think it's the playoff format.

Oh my god! An NHL cover I actuallyf****** love!!!! Please save that because I will be using that for my NHL 17 cover!
Seriously if the NHL could do something right to redeem them selves! That would be it!!!!
I will say I was pretty spot on the 2 teams with the more defensive back end and defensive players made it to the final, that's how 3 on 3 works ironically lol, exact opposite as people thought

Here's another asterisk.  From now on, there's going to be 44 All Stars every year, instead of 20.  

I think your a little off on your math, in the past each team has 20 skaters and 3 goalies, which equals 46 all Stars

Crashnburnluder.....not sure what you just said, but it appears that you are confused.  The people complaining are suggesting that, while both times are for one lap around the rink, Gartner's lap started from a dead stop, while Larkin's started while already up to a good speed.  I have no idea why the NHL would have allowed it to work that way (other than to artificially increase times or create buzz of a potential new record).  Doesn't make a lot of sense for them to do that, but wouldn't put it past them (a way to make the All Star weekend more relevant again?).  It's entirely possible as a lot of people only cared about the hardest shot recently...but would people have really cared about that either if everyone was hitting 95mph?

Well I did confuse my self, I confused the times.

Gartner had two separate skates. 1) where he started at the red line and posted a 13.3? And 2) where he started from the blue and posted a 12.9 but the NHL didn't count it as the record since it wasn't under the same format.

I confused the times thinking Larkin posted a 12.8 but I was thinking about his first race time.

Either way people will pull straws, mainly purists, but the NHL loves to be able to use the word record broken to cause excitement among new fans. I like the idea of skating the old style to see where they compare to the past.

People are confused, they are comparing Gartners record from a dead stop at center to the one were he started from the blue line and a running start. The announcer even said it before he even went for it. It is the fastest time ever posted for a lap around the rink and Larkin beat it. Simple as that

Ignore me haha, don't comment in the wee hours of the morning
