Chris Stewart isn't happy about Riley Nelson getting jilted.

Ya know what, Colorado (and Laredo) are so loaded they could put together a squad to take on the all-stars from the 15 other teams. But that's not the way it works. Nelson is a big omission, but he's hardly the only one.

And how many times are we gonna hear the coaches bitching about not highlighting a youngster? If it's so important, give Nelson Pankewicz's spot.

Actually, what I really wish is we could extend the season one more week and have a proper all-star weekend, one that out-of-towners could actually travel to, with the skills competition and a rookie game on Friday, then the real thing on Saturday. But for the other 16 owners, that would be pissing away an extra ten to twenty grand or more, so don't hold your breath.

Anyway, if Nelson, Tobler and Pankewicz hadn't put up all of two goals and one assist combined from December 12 to December 17th, they'd all be eating chile verde -- because their coach would have had the power to put them on the team. No doubt he would have taken Thompson too (instead of Craig Minard).

Other Colorado news: towards the end of the Av-Journal's article about MacIntyre and Blaznek, Stewart mentions that Tobler might get a look from Lowell of the AHL.

Hi George. Welcome back.
