Blame Canada! Blame Canada!

Last night, in what was probably a thrilling offensive showdown for all the hundreds of people who watched it*, the West beat the East in last night’s NHL All-Star Game. 12-9.

While All-Star Game MVP Daniel Briere had 1 goal and 4 assists in a losing effort, the Western Conference’s gritty elder statesman, Quebec Nordiques (and I guess Colorado Avalanche) star Joe Sakic did his best Steve Nash impersonation, passing out 4 assists and passing Mark Messier on the all-time All Star Game assists list. This multiple-point All-Star appearance was Sakic’s seventh total, which breaks the five-way tie between himself and Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Mark Messier and Luc Robitaille.

In other words, Grandpa Joe Sakic is pretty damn good. I guess chasing kids off your lawn is a great way for our elderly to keep in shape. Unfortunately, no one cares because it’s hockey and it’s on Versus

*Disclaimer: Although I do receive the Versus channel, I did not watch the All-Star Game, because sleeping for 4 hours was more important than a fucking glorified preseason game.

NHL All Star Game. Pick it.

Tonight on VS, we're going to witness the 55th All Star Game. The West vs. the East.

The West currently has this year's bragging rights with my hometown team, the Nashville Predators, as the number one team in the NHL. So, when it comes to it, who's winning?

Rich - West
Ron - East
Jaime Sue - East

Comment for your pick, I'll edit them in.
