  1. I agree completely with Doug’s power play. All stars are just that, stars. It’s pointless to have some mutt from Florida or Toronto in this game and participating in the entire weekend just to have every team represented–some teams do not contain all-star talent.

  2. This is the inherent problem with the concept of the All-Star Game. It’s always touted as “For the Fans”, most often by the players themselves. Is it really for the fans though? Which is it? A tribute to the fanbase, or is it a reward/privledge for the elite players of the league? That question needs to be answered foremost.

    Personally, even being the Leafs fan correspondent isn’t enough for me to think Tomas Kaberle has any reason to be there. As a true hockey fan, I’d get MORE enjoyment out of seeing the very best in the league square off, rather than seeing a bunch of exceptional players get dragged down by mediocre “ambassadors”.

  3. I’m in favor of eliminating the call up and downs from the Podcast. Just too many fringe players that I’ve never heard of that will likely be back down (like that one Canuck this past week). I’d note the conditioning assignments for players that have some good NHL time but that’s it.

    Keep up the good work!

  4. Keep the player movement section of the podcast, good stuff. I agree that the players who are actually performing the best should be the ones at the All Star game, and not players from a team just so they’re represented. At the same time, it’s pretty foolish to refer to someone like T. Kaberle as a “mutt” just because his team is suffering. Look at the points totals of some of the players over the last few seasons before you write them off as such. Don’t be a dumb mutt.

  5. Nathan: Characterizing Kaberle as a mutt has nothing to do with his team and everything to do with him as a player. Now, head back down to your Mom’s basement and go to your room.
