I did a little reading online but didn't really find much about it (from reliable sources). Also Crosby has been to like 3 All-Star games in the past 12 years, it seems he enjoys skipping out whenever possible.

Interesting comment made by Crosby when questioned about his probably not playing in all-star game. He mentioned something about some players possibly boycotting the game in retaliation for the NHL not allowing it's players to go to the Olympics. Anyone else hear anything about this?

They were scouting some of our juniors too - do they really think a bunch of old, slow dudes is preferable to at least a couple young and fast players?

I do wonder a bit at some of the recently-retired NHL-ers that are not on there. Iginla is injured, but surely they could have talked one or two others into taking part?

Am I the only one a bit concerned by the number of names on that list that I don't recognize?
