They're abandoning the game so that they can use it to play scheduled games since the Olympics are a two-week break. My personal feelings, look for the 2011 game to be in Columbus, if they have one.My other favorite is that the owners are voting on adding two games on to make it an 84-game schedule. Training camp starts in September, the Stanley Cup Finals end in mid-June, is two more games really necessary for these guys? Hockey is arguably the most demanding sport because of the schedule, the travel, and the sheer length of the season. Adding two games is stupid.

The regular season starts the Wednesday after the end of the regular season in baseball and stretches until the new baseball season is two weeks old. The playoffs are already two months long. Extending the sked is a horrible idea.
Columbus needs to get an ASG ASAP. The team and the city could use a boost and an ASG is a good way to get that. Hopefully, by the time the Jackets could expect to host one they'll have a team that is pretty consistently a playoff team. I could see both happening if the Jackets FO does enough of the right things in the next two or three years.

Hell I would love to see the All-Star game outside at The Shoe. They got 70,000 fans in Buffalo for a game I wonder what they could get at The Shoe?
