I'm not questioning the fun aspect of ASG, but morely I miss the spirit of competition rather than the spirit of fun; it suited hockey better with tensions so high.
Main reason why the competetive drive is gone is due to all of the international tournaments, such as the olympics, that put the best in the world against each other, but just on a bigger stage. The all-star game was no longer the best place for players to go head to head against each other anymore.

Was there really tension in past all-star skill competitions ? As far as I can tell (and my first all-star game I remember was like 2003), it was all good-spirited and pretty relaxed. Players were there to give a good show to the audience.

Sure, yes, the competition aspect is part of what makes an all-star game interesting, but the real competition happens during the playoffs, when there's something to earn and to prove.

It has more to do that it isn't worth the trouble enough to risk injuries during that week-end. What is there to earn anyway ? A Honda Pilot + 90,000$ cash ? Kinda low for a hockey player with a multi-million contract.

Question for you folks. For the 15/16 Playoff Pick'em that'll be coming soon, would you guys like to keep doing the same bracket setup that I used last year or would you prefer to use the one on NHL.com?

Doesn't matter to me. Personally I'd like to keep the same setup as last year.

Make me work for it, eh? Haha, I'm cool with running it that way.
And this year, maybe I'll finally have graphics made for the champions! (which I haven't done since 2012 like a scrub)

Detroit seems to be following the "win by a little, lose by a lot" mentality. That shelling by the Pens, man...but you just know they'll keep fighting. 24 years of playoff pride are on the line here.

It matters a lot that they can keep this going. They aren't too far away from the Canadiens all time streak. Here's to hoping that they make the playoffs much like when they snuck in with the 7 seed a couple years ago.

Well, when your team leader in goals is a rookie with 22 this late in the year, that's not a good thing. Good thing they moved to the East when they did, I don't think they would have kept making it in the West given how they've played the last few years. They're up 2-0 on Buffalo, though.

At this point, Detroit has a better chance of catching the Bruins for A3 than the Flyers for W2, but they still need some lucky breaks either way. 4-3 loss to the Habs after the power play finally wakes up, and Flyers get a shootout win over the Caps.

Inb4 Detroit doesn't make the playoffs and I flip my shit over it lol. But really I want them to make the playoffs but it looks more and more like they won't.
