Haven't watched an NHL All Star game in some time but when did they start having 4 teams?

I didn't know about that so read up on it.. So the NHL only wants certain skill set players on the team? That's BS.

So what. Baseball has guys at the game that don't deserve it either.. All sports do.. Regardless why - the fans wanted him there. NHL should respect that. Didn't he score 2 goals and win the MVP.

What about this season or next or 2020.. NHL tells someone else to stay home. NHL has no business in this matter. Are they just going to start taking speedy goal scorers from now on?

And it sounded like the team he was on was forced to trade him to keep him off.. Bad shit.

First the NHL pressure him to decline the invitation.

Than he was part of a convenient trade to another division where he was immediately demoted to the AHL.

How can the guy be Captain of Pacific division of all-star team if he isn't in the Pacific Division nor the League.

The only reason the NHL relented into letting him play was because of the fan backlash.


During Domi's brief stint at TSN, about a decade before the Scott debacle, he warned that allowing fans to write in candidates will lead to a situation like this.
