 It is getting worse and worse every year.

As if the Vote for Rory crap wasn't bad enough, now the online voting is getting even worse.  It has turned into a joke.

Breakaway Challenge?  Is this Ice Dancing or hockey?  Watching grown men try to spin around and make this ridiculous shots on net is embarassing.  Wasn't the traditional breakway contest good enough?  Never will players use these horrible moves in a real game, then why have a contest?

And the fact that one of the most exciting puckhandlers in the game, Datsyuk, isn't invited makes it more of a joke.  I guess he isn't on the NHL's short list of players selected to shovel down the fans' throats.  (see Crosby, Kane, and other over-hyped players)

Not more than once anyway. That's why I love watching junior debuts in NHL games getting dumped on their ass for trying to be cute.

First period could be amusing. CBC is miking the players so we can hear on ice conversations.

 I was watching the skills contest with my gf last night.  During the gay ass ice dancing breakaway, my gf looks at me and says, "I really feel embarassed for those guys.  They look so stupid."

I couldn't argue.

 The NHL suspended Datsyuk and Lidstrom for skipping the game due to injuries.  LOL.  What a joke.

The NHL is very poorly run, they need to get a new commish on there before Bettman kills the game.

They also need to get out of Phoenix, Tampa etc..
