How many hockey fans actually care about the NHL All-Star game?
Interest in the NHL All-Star game has been dwindling as of late, especially with superstars Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin not participating in this year's game.
Overall, the All-Star game lacks what every hockey fan has come to love about the game of hockey—there is no hitting, no defense and no fighting. As a result, tons of goals are scored and the feeling of the game is less of a competitive event and more of a figure skating exhibition.
The NHL could bring interest back to the All-Star game, but only if they are willing to make some changes to the game itself.
These are the five ways to improve next year's NHL All-Star game.
