  • Surprised this is only his 4th appearance. But honestly I couldn’t care less about this gimmick of an all star game. I haven’t watched since it went away from the conference vs conference fans voting to see who that want to see formats.

  • I’m surprised it’s only his fourth all star game too. I would rather he don’t even play though. There’s nothing good that can come out of it. The game itself is a joke anyway. I’m more interested in in the skills competition then the game. I get why they’re not gonna be hitting or going all out but it just looks like a social gathering more then a hockey game to me.
