The National Hockey Leagues all-star skills competition is currently taking place and during this all-star weekend, players have a chance to sit down with the media and answer some questions that they normally wouldn't have time for.

Over the past few years, we've seen Gary Bettman and the NHL make some changes and decision in the league that they thought would create a better game, but to many fans and players it doesn't always make it better.

One of the most criticized changes has been the current playoff format. It was changed to try to create more rivalries inside the divisions, but instead it has just made for less interesting play.

Many fans want to see the NHL go back to the 1v8 matchup instead of the currently format, and one of the NHL's biggest stars seems to agree.


Players have spoken out about the playoff format on multiple occasions, but today Sidney Crosby gave his thoughts on it:

Sidney Crosby says he'd change the league to go with a 1-8 playoff format. Says it rewards teams for the regular season better.



It will be interesting to see if the NHL ever goes back to the 1v8, especially since some of the biggest stars in the NHL want it back.
