I dunno, having it in the fall would seem to me that fringe fans would pass it over. "Ah, the World Series is over, time to figure out who I want in my fantasy football team. Wait, what's that, NHL All-Star game? Sure I'll watch. OK, hockey's over for the year, tell me who wins the Stanley Cup."The allstar game would be better in the fall, just before the season.
You'd also have to go with established players instead of seeing who shines. I can't speak for any other good player who just came into his own this year, but Letang wouldn't have made the All-Star game if it was in the fall. Having it now means there's already a highlight reel for the season for those players going.
But then again, the All-Star game would be more important if there was nothing around it. No one here except people who don't like football (like me) is paying attention to the All-Star game.
