"Inclusive" progressives want Kid Rock "excluded" from NHL All-Star game

Now a community that's hosted four Super Bowls, the World Series, two Stanley Cup finals and last year's college football national championship game welcomes the spotlight for its first NHL All-Star game since 1999.

The NHL All-Star game on Sunday is for the entire league. For that and a whole host of other reasons we've gone over repeatedly for the past year or so, it didn't make sense for us to attend. The 20-year-old was the only rookie named to the NHL All-Star Game and he became the first rookie to win MVP of the All-Star Game since Mario Lemieux in 1985.

Campbell discussed the issue with Leafs president Brendan Shanahan on Saturday afternoon before convening the larger meeting at Amalie Arena. "We knew the team would be better - the goal was to make the team competitive at its inception - and there's a great mix of talent that's bonded very well".

A strong start to the season for Flyers captain Claude Giroux had him back in the All-Star game again.

During a break in play at Sunday's NHL All-Star Game, Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning took a moment to honor Willie O'Ree, the first black player in the NHL, as their community hero of the week. "He has been able, whenever he has been asked about it, to give the right response and just go out and play the game".

The Pacific Division was next with its 11 players totaling $57.9 million. Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid, one of the league's most promising young stars, said he is excited to see the guys who will get a shot in place of the NHL players.

In the remaining competition, Alex Pietrangelo of the St. Louis Blues won the passing challenge. The Atlantic held on as the Metro pulled the goalie for the remaining two minutes in the 7-4 win for the host Atlantic Division. Reinhold Matay, USA TODAY Sports NHL team mascots pose for a picture prior to the 2018 NHL All Star Game skills competition at Amalie Arena. She even tried to "selfie" with a fan from EVERY team.

It was the second time in three years that the Pacific won the game since it was switched to a 3-on-3 format with each of the NHL's four divisions involved.
