    Just about anything would be better than the ASG.

    It seems like the All-star format changes very few years! I thought the current format was well-liked and entertaining. I don't get the point of scrapping it so soon.

    If they want an International event, let them go to the Olympics.

    Was the World Cup successful last year?

    I ask because I watched none of it.





    Though, I did notice that there were, like, 3 or 4 USA vs Canada games. So they could do, like, a 7 game series of those, right? Would that count?

    So are they going back to the North America vs The World format from 20 years ago or whenever? It seems like every 3-4 years they try a new gimmick to get people to watch this game. Whatever.

    I think they should keep the 3on3 all star tournament for non Olympic years. It was fun to watch. However, I think they should open it up to Random team Draw for 5 teams

    5 team round robin 8 minute single period semi-stop clock

    After round robin 1 plays 4, 2 plays 3 and then winners of those two rounds meet.

    Go to Olympics when Olympics are going on.

    Agree. In fact my idea is to simply have NOTHING....give players some time off. No one cares about ASGs anymore. I haven't watched one in 30 years.
