When's the last time Vinny got that kind of ovation from the arena in Tampa?

As if the media needed more fuel.

Cogliano wins the fastest skater with ~14.2 seconds.

YoungStars - 1.
All-Stars - 0.

Stamkos apparently just scored in the YoungStars game, except Versus couldn't be bothered to show it live or on a replay. They've missed several goals, truly awful coverage.

And it's the most boring thing I've watched, to boot. Does anyone care about this game? Players? Fans? Commentators? Doesn't seem/sound like it.

I don't mind the game. It's cheesy, sure. But the coverage is ruining the whole thing. Cutting into live action to show replays, leaving the camera on Marc Staal's face for 15 seconds...

Yeah piss poor directing and commentating. I know it doesn't count for anything, but do we really gain anything by staring at Marc Staal and spouting cliches about how good he is instead of just showing the damn game and the goal that was scored? Way to take a gigantic crap on the whole event. IMO they should do exactly the opposite. Don't put any play by play or color commentary. Let us hear of the sounds of the game and just add a few more camera angles and mic up the players.

Stamkos ended up with two goals in the 9-5 rookie win. Obviously, no one saw the second one... but the first was a pretty play in front back and forth with Schenn.

Pretty much everyone was thinking "pass first" on anything but breakaways -- except Blake Wheeler.

not just the young stars game, but everything is boring. I just had it in the background while I was lifting weights... okay, I was cleaning the kitchen. I heard that Ovechkin won the breakway contest by doing nothing except putting on a hat, with a Canadian flag, and sunglasses.
