New format for this sesaon - it's a schoolyard pick from the sounds of it.

Quote:
TORONTO (AP)—The NHL has decided to change the format for the 2011 All-Star game in Carolina.

The Canadian Press, citing an unidentified source, reported two captains will choose players from either conference to make up the teams. The sides will be determined during a live television event at the start of All-Star weekend.

NHL vice president Brendan Shanahan(notes) developed the idea and discussed the change during the GM meetings on Tuesday but was reluctant to discuss it with the media afterward.

Shanahan says some players approached about the concept seemed energized by the idea.

The Eastern Conference and Western Conference have faced off in the All-Star game since 2003.

Oh, and it's still a meaningless game.

I'm not sure about this idea. The All Star game already sucks, and this format won't make it not suck. It's just a question of whether this format will suck more or less.

Here's the ballot of players for the all-star game. Iggy, Kipper, and JBo are there for the Flames. How many of them actually get voted onto the roster remains to be seen. Voting opens on Monday.

Iggy out? Briere may be his replacement.

And from Twitter:
Quote:
@DarrenDreger: Sounds like Briere is in and Iggy is out at ASG. Should be confirmation soon.


UPDATE: Iggy has been excused from the ASG b/c his grandmother is ill.
