85-Marincin-2

There’s a funny thing about rebuilds: Aside from the guys who are proven NHL players (stars like Taylor Hall, veterans like Andrew Ference) and the bluest of blue chip prospects (we’re talking Leon Draisaitl, not Martin Marincin) the rest of the guys on the team tend to be warm bodies who will end up spending many lovely years playing games in Germany and Switzerland.

We are finishing a stretch of five days without any NHL regular season games, yet there has been no shortage of NHL talk, much of it grumbling.

Why are so many media people and some fans still complaining about the All Star game? It will never be a competitive game, and it shouldn't be. Save yourself, and, more importantly, us from having to be inundated with your repeated complaints, and simply don't watch it.

I know the game isn't competitive. It is shinny with highly skilled players, so I choose not to watch. It sounded like Columbus did a fantastic job of hosting the event, and many kids got to see their hockey heros, which is what matters.
