The Isles ave signed Bo Horvat to an 8 year deal at 8.5 per…..

On All Star Weekend…
I am in the total minority here. I love the All-Star Weekend. I have been to a half dozen of them as a reporter and one as a fan in Philly back in high school (The famous Ray Bourque and targets one) and I love the whole thing.

I love the debate over which players should be going and I love the casual atmosphere that allows us to see the players in a more human light. I especially love the current format of division vs. division, all though I would go to 4 v 4. just to tighten it up a little bit...and because as a goalie myself 3 v 3 leaves you extra vulnerable..

I thought the NHL and Florida threw a great party. I thought the external games in the sun. The surfboards and the golf were a whole lot of fun and reminded me of "Battle of the Network Stars" in a real nostalgic way. The Panthers showed they are a first class organization and over the past few years they have absolutely stepped up things. Matthew Tkachuk playing with Brady was pure gold, and the fact Tkachuk wanted to win for the Panthers to show the greatness of those fans, the team and the city shouid tell you all you need to know.

As for the All-Star weekend...Of course we all know this isn't the hockey we love EVERY other night of the season.....so why are so many people so obsessively upset about this whole thing? It is so easy to be jaded and hate on things these days,...The internet was built for the haters..people don't respond when they agree with things...I know that all too well..

I put a poll on twitter and there weren't many people liking this...

So my question is this...Does anyone else agree with me about this event?
