The best thing the NHL has ever done for the All-Star Game, whether you love it or hate it, has been the addition of the three-on-three tournament into the mix. Sure, the game doesn’t have as much meaning as it used to, but moulding the three-on-three overtime format to fit the staleness that has become the All-Star Game has added new life to the weekend.

Adding the format has given players like Wayne Simmonds of last All-Star Game the chance to shine, and it has given hockey fans some incredible moments in the process. With such a glut of talent on the ice, it’s no wonder we get better action and more creativity with all that extra space out there.

The league announced the full All-Star rosters on Wednesday as selected by the NHL's hockey operations department. With four players on the Atlantic Division team, host and league-leading Tampa Bay has the most representatives for the skills competition and 3-on-3 tournament Jan. 27-28 at Amalie Arena.

With the release of the upcoming rosters for the 2018 All-Star Game, we thought it’d be best to start dreaming up the most tantalizing three-on-three lineups we can possibly ice. Who knows if they’ll come true by the time the game rolls around on Sunday, Jan. 28, but let’s have some fun thinking about the lines we really want to see.

Atlantic Division

Steven Stamkos, Nikita Kucherov, Victor Hedman

First and foremost, let’s get the Tampa Bay Trio out of the way. Considering Andrei Vasilevskiy also made the Atlantic Division squad, the All-Star Game may not look too dissimilar from a Lightning game at Amalie Arena. There’s a reason the Lightning have four players on this team, and Kucherov and Stamkos have 60 and 52 points respectively so far on the season. Hedman’s 33 points as a defenseman ain’t half bad either.

  Stamkos voted captain as Lightning host All-Star weekend NEW YORK — When the Tampa Bay Lightning host NHL All-Star Weekend, they'll have face of the franchise Steven Stamkos front and center. Stamkos was voted by fans as captain of the Atlantic Division team for the All-Star 3-on-3 tournament that'll take place later this month at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. The league unveiled All-Star captains Wednesday night and is expected to announce the full rosters in mid-January.Stamkos has 49 points for first-place Tampa Bay and is signed for the next seven seasons. Stamkos was the No.

Auston Matthews, Jack Eichel, Erik Karlsson

Two of the NHL’s young stars in Matthews and Eichel pairing up with league veteran Karlsson would be a formidable line. Karlsson is perhaps the best offensive defenseman in the league and alongside two creative playmakers in Matthews and Eichel, opponents are likely going to have a bad time trying taking the puck away.

Steven Stamkos, Brad Marchand, Mike Green

The NHL’s youth get a lot of praise, as they should, but the league’s veterans aren’t slouches either. Stamkos and Marchand are NHL leaderboard staples, but fans outside of Detroit may not know who Green is. The defenseman has 24 points for the Red Wings this year and is on pace for one of his best seasons in recent memory. Not a bad bunch to put together at the end of the day.

Metropolitan Division

Alex Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, Claude Giroux

It will be a rare sight should all three Metropolitan Division stars play in this tournament, as we’ve never had a year where all of them have been on the All-Star roster! Sure, there’s no defensive pairing on this list, but giving the overall skill of Crosby, the shooting presence of Ovechkin, and Giroux’s playmaking should be a top priority.

Taylor Hall, Josh Bailey, Noah Hanifin

Hall is now a three-year All-Star veteran, and putting the talented New Jersey Devils forward alongside newcomers to the scene in Bailey and Hanifin seems almost perfect.

Sidney Crosby, John Tavares, Kris Letang

With Tavares’ contract coming up, the Penguins may just have a perfect opportunity to audition the New York Islanders’ captain for a spot on the team should things fall through on his end. Wink wink, nudge nudge, Pittsburgh.

Central Division

Nathan MacKinnon, Brayden Schenn, Blake Wheeler

Offense will not be in short supply for the Central Division, as this trio has some of the most potent scorers in the NHL. MacKinnon’s moves are near legend at this point and with Schenn’s net-front presence and Wheeler an assist machine, they’ll outscore opponents before defense is even needed.

Patrick Kane, Tyler Seguin, P.K. Subban

We are blessed for another year of Subban leading the Central Division as the team’s captain. Subban always makes events more fun with his mere presence alone, and who can forget Seguin’s ESPN duck shoot. All three players are masters of creativity and skill on the ice for their separate teams, and could make an incredible combination at the All-Star Game.

Avalanche bring six-game win streak into game vs. Ducks

  Avalanche bring six-game win streak into game vs. Ducks Nathan MacKinnon didn't think he deserved to play in the NHL All-Star Game last season. This year, his selection is much different. He's in the top five in the NHL in scoring and a catalyst in the Avalanche's revival. He thinks he belongs among the best later this month.

When is the 2018 NHL All - Star Game? Date, rosters , how to watch. On one hand, three - on - three hockey with the best players in the NHL is going to be fun. But there will be some big snubs thanks to the “each team must have a representative” rule.

Best of NHL Network. Top Players Right Now. Stats. 2018 NHL All - Star Skills Competition™ Sat, Jan 27 | 7:00pm ET. Atlantic. Coach: Jon Cooper, TBL.

Tyler Seguin, Eric Staal, John Klingberg

The Minnesota North Stars line. Too perfect to pass up, honestly.

Pacific Division

Connor McDavid, Johnny Gaudreau, Brock Boeser

Hello offense. McDavid’s overall explosiveness, Gaudreau’s creativity, and Boeser’s dynamic goal-scoring ability make for a line that’s sure to bring the heat. Maybe the NHL will let Gaudreau actually light his stick on fire for real this time.

Anze Kopitar, Rickard Rakell, Brent Burns

Much like the Metropolitan Division rivalry line, a Battle of California line is certainly needed. Burns is one of the league’s best set up men from the point, and Kopitar and Rakell’s two-way style of play could play keep-away from almost any opponent.

Connor McDavid, James Neal, Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Neal’s disruption tactics might just leave ample room for McDavid and Ekman-Larsson to go back and forth across the ice trading chances. Really, McDavid with anyone would make a great line opportunity, but Ekman-Larsson needs some love as the Arizona Coyotes lone choice. No better way to get acquainted than to put him with the league’s best.


Scythe will get a legacy-style expansion this year .
Jamey Stegmaier struck gold with Scythe, one of the best new strategy board games in recent memory. This year he’s trying something different with a legacy-style expansion called Scythe: The Rise of Fenris. Scythe is an alternate history game where giant mechs stomp across rural European battlefields. It blends worker-placement games like Agricola with area-control games like Risk or Axis & Allies. The fiction is based on Polish artist Jakub Różalski’s 1920+ setting, which has also been turned into a video game project called Iron Harvest. Legacy games were pioneered by Rob Daviau, the designer of Risk: Legacy and co-designer of the Pandemic Legacy series. The basic concept is that legacy games change over time, adding new rules and mechanics as they go and requiring that players alter or destroy game components along the way. Other examples include the elaborate dungeon crawler Gloomhavenand Mechs vs. Minions, based on Riot Games’ popular League of Legends. How exactly Stegmaier will apply the legacy concept to Scythe isn’t completely clear but, in a video posted to a private fan group on Facebook, he explained that the system will be completely modular and will not change or damage the original game. Think of it as a series of tweaks to the base game that can be experienced a la carte, or strung together in a thematic campaign.
