The All-Star game is one of the low points in the year for me; I could generally care less about it, while most of my friends and a majority of you (if my comment-radar is correct) find it to be very exciting.
It's basically the only reason (gulp) I'm announcing this.
So congrats to Dan Boyle and Joe Thornton on the distinct honor of having to play in an extra game and do some side travel, while the likes of Patty Marleau and Devin Setoguchi stay at home to rest. We'll be keeping our eye on Big Joe and Danny Boy; something tells me this "weekend getaway" thing might be just what the doctor ordered.
The All-Star festivities will be held the weekend of January 24th in Montreal, Quebec.
