The Bruins had a very eventful first half of the season. At times, they looked like the Edmonton Oilers of the 1980s, while other times they struggled with consistency.

The NHL All-Star game is a fun event, but ultimately, it's just that -- fun. It doesn't count for two points in the standings, has few bragging rights at stake and in general is just an excuse to see the best players in the league skating together without worrying about things as trivial as hitting or playing defense. Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas and Tyler Seguin will all be participating...
