The NHL announced the rosters for this year’s NHL All-Star Game on Wednesday night and fans had mixed reactions to the official lineups. With the amount of talent currently in the NHL and each team consisting of just 11 guys (nine players, two goalies), it was expected to see some stars get snubbed from the list and that’s exactly what happened.
On Thursday, Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane, who will be making his 8th NHL All-Star Game appearance, offered up a way to switch things up during the annual event and dropped the names of a couple of players he feels should be there this season.
Kane feels that the NHL should abandon the rule of having every team represented in the game and pick the rosters strictly based on the league’s leaders in points. The 30-year-old also joked about how he’s going to campaign for Jonathan Toews to be the Last Man In because he doesn’t want his captain getting extra time off while he’s still playing.
Do you agree or disagree with Kane’s thoughts on picking the teams based on point leaders?
