Report: NHL may skip '06 All-Star Game

6/24/2005 12:08:34 PM

According to a report in the East Valley Tribune, the National Hockey League could skip the 2006 NHL All-Star Game.

NHL sources confirmed to the paper that, if the league sends players to the 2006 Winter Olympics in Italy, then the league would likely cancel the All-Star game.

The All-Star weekend is scheduled for February 4-5, while the Olympic Games are slated for February 10-26, making it difficult to incorporate both in a new schedule, especially when travel and practice time are taken into consideration.

A new collective bargaining agreement is reportedly nearing completion, and the league doesn't want to shut down twice during a season in which they will be trying to lure back fans after an acrimonious labour dispute.
With the labor impase looking like it may come to an end, what would you rather see?

For me, other than the fact that I just want to see the Hartford Whalers come back, it would have to be the Olympics. The All-Star game is not that enjoyable to watch unless you are at the rink, and the Olympics are for all the bragging rights!

Definately Olympics, The Skills Competition Is Decent Most Of The Time, But Other Than Nhl Playoff Hockey, Nothing Comes Close To The Olympics

Hopefully They Do Get Back To It, Cause The Gold Medal Would Look Weird Around A Bunch Of Junior Or Overseas Players

JTG,

Turn off your caps-lock key :D

Olympics by far. And if they were smart, they would let/insist CBC brings back Peter Puck and the weekly skills challenges (with Mike Palmateer doing the commentating) :D
