I have to write this blog quickly before Evgeni Nabakov comes in with a poke check and screws it all up, so here goes....

- Leaf fans will be happy to hear that to generate a quick response to a massive clean-up effort, Cliff Fletcher has brought in FEMA....

- You may have noticed that a different goaltender was used for each period of the All-Star Game. When asked about the change from a regular season game, Flames coach Mike Keenan said "Change? What Change?"

- Congratulations go to Tim Thomas whose shootout defending has prompted a re-birth of breakdancing...

- Early Vegas betting says the chances that Versus adds a 7-second delay to the Skills competitions are about on par with the chances that Hockey Night in Canada features the Toronto Maple Leafs this weekend.

- Garth Brooks..... HB Blogger Garth..... hmmmmmmmmmmmm

- I predict that next year in Montreal, Rick Nash will score 5 goals, get 3 assists, make 22 saves, play 60:00, drive the Zamboni between periods, make out with the ice girls, cook the post-game Prime Rib, sweep up afterwards and drive each player to the airport, but Rory Fitzpatrick will be named ASG MVP. (e3.14159)

- As punishment for not showing up for the All-Star game weekend, the NHL has ruled that Martin Brodeur and Roberto Luongo will be forced to watch 5 straight hours of highlights of Darryl Sittler's 10-point night. You know -- normal NHL Network programming...

- A new event has been added for next year -- players must carry a puck in from the red line and score into an empty net. The winner will be awarded the Patrick Stefan Trophy.

- At the All-Star Game memorabilia show, fans could get their pictures taken with the Stanley Cup, and Conn Smythe Trophy, but the longest line was where fans got the rare chance to spin Colin Campbell's "Wheel of Suspension"

- There are other reports that Blues' rookie David Perron actually did see a UFO while filming his YoungStars game introduction....

In other non-All-Star Game (i.e. real) action

- Big Game for the Devils on Saturday night...the NHL now says that if you lose to Los Angeles, you get relegated to the AHL, and your next home game is against the Rockford IceHogs.

- Dion Phaneuf's post-whistle pushing and shoving against Jeremy Roenick the other night is now being investigated by the NHL in conjunction with the AARP Council for Elder Abuse.

Great blog, i thoroughly enjoyed it and had a good laugh. I was definitely inspired to start breakdancing after the skills competition and was even more excited when i heard Tim Thomas would be trying out for "So you think you can dance". Keep up the good work

Pretty funny BF. And you are certainly correct in my view with your reference to and the oversight of Rick Nash as the appropriate ASG MVP.
