  1. Toews……well Central All Stars I guess ??

    Subban Capt. ??? That’s a politically correct joke
    Yes, Kane should be Capt. No Panarin??

    Red Wings will have extra energy tonight. Hawks better be ready

  2. Even though Bread Man/others deserve to be at asg, this is good for player bonuses.

    Vote escalator and good oil news.

  3. “I really didn’t expect to hear my name get called for the all-star game this year, knowing how great of a season (Marian Hossa, Artemi Panarin and Artem Anisimov) are having. No doubt about it, they’re much more deserving,” said Toews. <<< credit him for being honest.

  4. There was a time when being named an all star really stood for something , Remember those special hockey cards in the 70,s ???Espo , Mikita , Hull ,.,.those were the days .
    Just a bunch of watered down ,kinder gentler bullshit now . I wish ,i wish Wall was as humble as Toews ,.,.,.Ha. ,.,.Best 6 million bucks we ever spent !

  5. I would be fine without an All Star game. Just give the players 4 days off and let them heal and get focused for the second half.

  6. Just watching the Hawks and Red wings ,.,seeing lots of dirty littlle hits and things from the Wings,.,.,i wish Tootoo would grab TaTar and just pound him ,.,.,need to send a message . Now i realise Tootoos nuts have been snipped and his fighting days justbout done but ,.,.,Christ someone needs to get ugly .

  7. That slew foot (leg) trip on Hammer that led to (gave them) their 2nd goal is bullshit. Should have been 2-1 after 2nd. Bunch of… pussys.
