    Rumor du Jour: Gary Bettman in Ottawa on September 15 to announce the 2012 NHL All-Star Weekend will be hosted by the Ottawa Senators

    I don't know how valid this is, but wouldn't that be something.

    About Cussing time...even Atlanta had an all-star game already. Seriously. They did.

    As far as I know, part of the agreement in regards to Melnyk buying the team was that "we" would get 1 all-star game and 1 entry draft. So it would make sense that we got this event.

    Isn't Toronto in the mix here as well? I thought I read that months ago somewhere? I don't know if this is a done deal just yet.

    Didn't Toronto have the all-star game in 2011 or something like that. Maybe not that year, but sometime in the somewhat recent past?

    For that reason alone I would put Ottawa as front runners.

    Dude, what year do you think it is? Sarcasm

    Seriously, though, Carolina got the 2011 game. Toronto last hosted it in 2000, but they also hosted it four of the first five years after it became an annual affair in '47, and another four times in the '60s. They haven't done much since the '60s.

    Yeah Toronto's logo for the event was something like 2T0R0NT0.... Those 'o' are zeroes.

    Not surprising. Have you seen their Ice Girls?

    There are people who know how to skate in Atlanta??? Oh, are they Russian mail-order brides?

    Nah, probably just some Falcons cheerleaders who could rollerblade.

    Nah, the "Blue Crew" (and be careful how you spell that).

    Haha, that was meant to say 2001, clearly I was in no condition for hockey talk.

    I think the fact they've hosted the game in the last decade will play against them though, even if they haven't hosted the game (other than that) in the last 40 odd years.

    Apparently this has been confirmed now. Maybe could change the title of the thread to reflect that.
