This really kills the spirit of international competition. I think hockey needs to expand international play through the iihf, but unfortunately unlike soccer, in which player's national groups are a second team they play for their entire career, there is only one major dominant league in hockey. The NHL makes the rules.

I'd never really been interested in the all star weekend, but for some reason I was really excited for it this year.

Of course they're taking hannifin if he's on the board. Obviously the foundation to the rebuild needs to be hockey east.

I saw a few Nets games after the Devils left. Like a lot of people here, it was the first stadium I regularly went to and will always have a soft spot for it. To me, it feels like it's been gone for almost a decade. It was almost eerie going in 2009 or 2010, whenever I was there last. I tend to romanticize demolished or unused major sports venues, though. It would be cool if the Devils did what the sixers did in 09 when they took down the spectrum and have one game there. Obviously it's a totally different situation and never would or could happen. Maybe we'll get a video montage or something next season.

From an architectural standpoint, good riddance. Nothing good was built in the middle of the twentieth century. At least not in this country.

My freshman year, our coach threw a garbage can at some kid and threw another against the wall. Welcome to Shore Conference hockey. Also, now Manasquan/Point Beach are a joint team? It used to be the two point schools together.
