When the All-Star starters were announced, I felt we almost could have had an entire starting unit from San Jose. You could have put Joe, Patty and Seto on a forward line and Boyle and Blake on the blueline. Then plug Nabby in the net and that starting six would easily fit into an All-Star game. I wish a few more of those guys would have been named as reserves, but there are reasons for everything.
I actually like watching the All-Star game. The skills competition is always fun to watch and with the game in Montreal, there is some extra excitement. Hockey is everything up there. It’s one of the three biggest hockey markets in the world, if not the biggest. Anything and everything to do with hockey is a big deal.
If I was going home during the break, I would definitely try to get a couple of tickets. Seto will be there for the Young Stars game and I would be in charge of entertaining him for a few days.
I’d say in about a week I could be ready and then we’ll have some extra time because of the All-Star game so it could be two weeks. That is what I’m hoping for. Nothing is set in stone yet, but I’ll keep you updated.
