The NHL All-Star Game that was supposed to go down this Sunday is no longer going down this Sunday because of the lockout. It’s unfortunate, as the NHL usually has one of the better all-star games out of the 3 major sports in North America. I didn’t include the Pro Bowl in that conversation because it’s become an embarrassment.
Resident hockey writer Justin Bourne and myself were trying to figure out how to come up with some sort of all-star game. Sure, I could just simulate a game, but where’s the fun in that? So it’s up to you to decide who starts for each team. JB came up with a list of players, and all you have to do is vote on who you want to start. Pick your 3 best forwards, 2 defensemen, and 1 goalie on each side, and on Monday we’ll tally up the votes, set up the rosters on NHL 13, then sim the game.
Vote early and vote often. We will now have an all-star game, my friends.
