Thread: Hockey All Star Game

  1. #1
    I'm really enjoying the wide-open offensive nature of the game. Anybody who watches "real" hockey can see that this game is way different from that.

    The players are skating in a manner that would get them killed in a regular season game.

    Should hockey attempt to emulate this style of play and let the athletic abilities shine or do we enjoy the brutality of hockey too much?
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    I don't know which type of all-star game you're referring to, so it's difficult to comment.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Really. Hockey. Neverwouldathunk.

    There are different types of hockey all-star games. There is the annual best-of-the-NHL. There is (at least here) the annual best-of-the-best with legends such as Bobby Orr. There is the best-of-the-feeders playing against the best-of-the NHL teams.

    And, imagine that, they're all hockey. And they're all different.

    I didn't see it this year, unfortunately.

    There does tend to be more of an emphasis on skating than on checking, mainly because the Stanley Cup playoffs haven't really begun yet, and it just wouldn't do to have your star player out with a busted knee. The skating portion also tends to be somewhat reliant on the lineup; European/Quebecois players are trained more in regards to skating than physical aggressiveness.
