OTTAWA – The talent level at NHL All-Star Games is downright ridiculous. The players in today’s exhibition have combined for 5,136 goals and 13,558 points during their stellar careers.
Amazingly, if given the chance, Jason Pominville would pass on acquiring all of them.
The relaxed, good-natured feel of the All-Star event shined through shortly after Team Chara earned a 12-9 victory over Team Alfredsson. Buffalo Sabres rookie Luke Adam grabbed a microphone and interviewed teammate Jason Pominville, who had a goal and assist in a losing effort.
Adam’s final question was about all the talent in Scotiabank Place.
"If you could pick one player on this team to be part of the Buffalo Sabres, do you think you could pick one player?" Adam asked. "Did you notice one guy you had a lot of fun playing with or see someone out there?"
"I don’t know if I’d pick a player," Pominville said in a serious tone. "I like our team. I like everybody we have. I like the chemistry we have in our locker room, so I would keep it that way."
