More on the All-Star Mess

The buzz all day has been that Nicklas Lidstrom and Pavel Datsyuk will be suspended one game for missing the All-Star Game this weekend.

Honestly, I have no words for this. Malik has a couple posts about it. For those in a more embittered mood, Bill at A2Y has words as well.

I heard NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly on NHL Home Ice on my way home, only caught a few minutes before turning it off lest I run someone off the road. His line was (and I’m paraphrasing) that for whatever reason, if a player needs to rest over the All-Star break then they need to rest for a regular season game, too.

Great, now we’ve got the NHL telling us how injured our players are. Fantastic.
