Sabres (thankfully) left out of young stars game

The Buffalo Sabres don't have any of their rookies playing in the young stars game in Atlanta before the all star break this year, and if anything that's a good thing. Last year Thomas Vanek got dragged into the the event, which was the most pathetic event to ever try and masquerade itself as a hockey game.

That said things may be different as this year's roster is apparently lacking goalies. Either they are planning on something different, or they have found an obvious way to increase scoring without changing the size or colour of the nets. Incidentally playing without goalies would still look more like a traditional hockey game than whatever that was going on last year. Personally I think they should add a downhill skating competition to the event. (Wouldn't that be fun?)
