    ASG rosters announced

    Did they get them right? Who got snubbed, and who shouldn't be there?

    Also, color me surprised that this is only Crosby's 3rd ASG? That can't be right, can it?

    Sid is injury prone. Add in the olympics twice and a lockout. Glad Toews didn't get his third straight undeserved addition.

    Carey Price making the all-star team is a joke. Among goalies w/ 20+ games he's ranked 20 of 31 in both GAA & SV%
    Carlo / McAvoy / Bjork / DeBrusk

    He's been the best Hab. It's the only position they could find a Hab. I'm not big on having to have a player from each time but it is what it is. player x is a 9 time all-star for example means NOTHING. Look at some of the all-stars in recent years.

    Exactly. It used to mean something to an "x" time all-star, now its just a joke. The All-Star game is meant for the best players of that season and sadly fans get ripped off because we don't get the best of a particular season.

    They need to change the selection process.
    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    Bergeron and Pastrnak I definitely felt we’re snubbed for the Bruins (I can’t comprehend how Bergy wasn’t selected... makes no sense at all...)

    Marchessault not getting selected was flooring too... over a PPG at the time of selection and not getting into the ASG is bananas lol
