Ten Things You Can Do Instead of Watching the NHL All-Star Game

The NHL All-Star Game is a joke.

We all know it. At Penguins Experience we are Boycotting the game. Sidney Crosby will not be playing the the game due to injury. Evgeni Malkin will be there, forced to associate with Alexander Ovechkin for the weekend. Nothing good can come out of this game.

For those who aren't watching, here is a list of ten things you can do instead of watching the NHL All-Star Game:

  • Watch Pittsburgh Penguins DVDs. We suggest The Pittsburgh Penguins 10 Greatest Games or Sidney Crosby: On the Ice and Beyond (Amazon Affilate links)
  • Send a "Get Well Soon" card to Sergei Gonchar. We need him back as soon as possible. If you have any medical training or voodoo skill, please do whatever you can to get him back into game shape ASAP. Please.
  • Watch clips on YouTube. We suggest you start with Scott Hartnell Can't Do Shootouts, hearing Malkin suggest that the team should "Shoot Everybody" is a good place to begin as well.
  • Sign up at (Thanks to The Pensblog for that one)
  • Watch paint dry. Trust us, it will be more exciting than the game.
  • See if you can come up with a voting system better than the one the NHL used for this year's game. Try to use computers, paper and pencil, or some sort of precise arrangement of broken sticks to do a better job than whoever the NHL hired this year.
  • Pray that the Penguins make the playoffs.
  • Pray that Evgeni Malkin doesn't get injured during the game.
  • Make fun of Philadelphia. There's no particular reason for this. In fact, we feel that all Penguins fans should find some time every weekend to make fun of Philadelphia. It helps right the universe and will generally make you feel better.
  • Count the days until real hockey comes back.

As a special bonus 11th suggestion, you can join our Boycott the NHL All-Star Game Group on Facebook.
