Blue Jackets to soon place bid on future All-Star Game

If you did not read this entire article in today's edition of the Columbus Dispatch, you would not have caught this little scoop from Aaron Portzline.

The Blue Jackets and the Greater Columbus Sports Commission expect to make a bid in the coming months to host an NHL All-Star Game, GCSC executive director Linda Logan said. The league will begin accepting applications in the fall for the 2012 and '13 games. The 2011 game is set for Glendale, Ariz., but that could be a problem if the Phoenix Coyotes relocate.

Despite no official announcement yet, it appears that the Phoenix Coyotes will host the next NHL All-Star Game in 2011 (since there is not one this upcoming season due to the 2010 Olympic break in February). Will the Columbus Blue Jackets get the nod in 2012 or 2013? Time will tell, but we will see.
