Marchand is 10x the player than 80% of the AllStar players selected…
Gwan with you (10x player than 80%)! I’m not saying that because I am a Leafs fan either! Yes he deserves to go there, but he isn’t 10x better than 80% of the players going.
The NHL has made the All-Star a joke. Before it used to be based on performance for the season leading up to the AS Weekend. Now it’s having fans vote people in and making sure every team gets represented. The way it should be, is you invite those that are producing and should be in the All Stars, if that means a team has 3-5 players who should be there, then send them there.
The All Star game and festivities are a JOKE. Real hockey fans don’t care. Give the players and fans a 2 week break before the real hockey starts.
