Kinda sucks cause it would have been cool to see him play in the skills comp and such, but he's doing it so he can rest and hopefully help the Pens make a playoff push the second half of the season. I would care more if Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin were the starting line...but we all know what happened there.
As far as his replacement, St. Louis, I was going to argue against it, but it's the All-Star game...actually you know what...effin Krecji should be there. Who gives a shit if 3 Bruins are on the team. They're the best team in the East if not the NHL, they deserve it. Why should Tampa get 2 all-stars? How hard is it to lead your team in scoring in Tampa anyways. Krejci =
Now this is Vance, I want to pose a question. Since 1 of the 5 entrants in the breakaway challenge is going to be absent from the competition, is the NHL scrambling to add another to the festivities? Kane, Kovalev, Getzlaf, Ovechkin, and ????? Do you think they'll add someone or just let it go?
I would say Datsyuk, but yeah, he bailed too. I'd have to say Malkin, Toews, or Hejduk. What do you think?
