Mustapha Posted March 23, 2015 Share Posted March 23, 2015 I don't really find the All-Star experience riveting, as the game doesn't really carry any consequences and the skills competition is weak at best. I think a mini tournament is where it needs to go. 1. Each division has an All-Star lineup (probably not a full roster, but let's say 6 forwards 4 defense plus 2 goalies 2. Instead of skills competition, the 4 teams play a semifinal game each (West Final and East Final) 3. The second day, there can be an alumni game and then the All Star Final between Western and Eastern Champ. Here's the stakes : The winning division team earns 2 regular season points for each team in their division, giving that division a small boost over the other in the overall standings. I don't envision full 60 minutes for each game, I was thinking like 4 on 4 hockey for two 15 minute periods in the first round (as there will be two games played the first day) and then a two 20 minute period ''Final" game the next day. Hell, they can even win a trophy at the end. I know there will be details to be nitpicked, but overall I like the idea, especially much more than a skills competition ( which every team does already) and a meaningless game.( Hopefully I didn't propose an idea someone else already thought of) Thoughts?
