<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>F50marco</b></div><div>Under this ideology, there would be a million more ways to make the all star game more entertaining if that's the case.
If its about growing the game, Sabourin does nothing for it. If its for the fans, then how about let the fans choose every aspect of it including all players. if its for a "feel good" story, let a couple lucky fans get to suit up and play alongside these guys for a period.
The idea of voting in guys like Sabourin, Scott and Fitzpatrick before him, is all part of the fans attempt at creating chaos. A royal "up yours" to the establishment in order to laugh and make fun of the whole situation. That's why the whole thing just annoys me.</div></div>
Scott making the allstar game went viral, id find it hard to say it didnt help the league at all. Im sure his teammates were estatic for him and its been one of the best stories in years. But it is a one time thing. The fans get to vote for a reason, if it were a real allstar game, then a bunch of teams would have nobody there and teams like Tampa would have 5. You dont want to overdo any of those stories but it adds a fun dynamic to an otherwise meaningless game. I loved when people hopped on the Zemgus wagon
And again, the allstar game is made to be fun and honestly just geared to the younger fans, when i was younger i loved it, now ill still watch parts of it or highlights but it doesnt have the same draw
