SI HAS IDEA FOR NHL IN SPICING UP ITS ALL-STAR WEEKEND
Published January 23, 1998
The NHL "should consider" staging a game featuring the top 40 Canadian Hockey League prospects during its All-Star Weekend, according to Kostya Kennedy of SI. Kennedy: "The NHL dreads the logistical nightmare of adding the CHL game to an already overstuffed weekend. They're also afraid that the game might not draw fans in U.S. cities. But if the game is packaged with the All-Stars skill competition, spectators will turn out" (SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, 1/26 issue).
