NHL All Star Game

There is no NHL all star game this season because they chose to not hold it in an Olympic year (the NHL bigwigs didn't want two breaks in the season). Nevertheless, I can still pick teams as I would have them if there had been a game.

First lets set the rules. Each team (west and east conference) has 12 forwards, 6 defencemen and 3 goalies. Each NHL team must have at least one player in the all star game. The starting line-up is picked by a simulated vote (I pick the people that I think would have been voted to be starters - 1 centreman, 2 wingers, 2 defencemen and 1 goalie per conference). In even of injuries to selected players (I am assuming that any player on the TSN NHL Injury list is unavailable to play and will need replacement) players are replaced but we still must have at least one player per NHL team.

Here are my picks for the all star teams:

East Conference

Daniel Alfredsson Ottawa Senators
Patrice Bergeron Boston Bruins
Sidney Crosby Pittsburgh Penguins
Peter Forsberg Philadelphia Flyers (starter - injured)
Simon Gagne Philadelphia Flyers
Dany Heatley Ottawa Senators (replaces Forsberg on roster)
Marian Hossa Atlanta Thrashers
Jaromir Jagr New York Rangers (starter)
Ilya Kovalchuk Atlanta Thrashers (starter)
Alexander Ovechkin Washington Capitals
Vaclav Prospal Tampa Bay Lightning
Eric Staal Carolina Hurricanes (replaces Forsberg as a starter)
Alexei Yashin New York Islanders

Dan Boyle Tampa Bay Lightning (replaces McCabe on roster)
Zdeno Chara Ottawa Senators (starter)
Tomas Kaberle Toronto Maple Leafs
Andrei Markov Montreal Canadiens (injured)
Bryan McCabe Toronto Maple Leafs (injured)
Teppo Numminen Buffalo Sabres
Wade Redden Ottawa Senators (starter)
Craig Rivet Montreal Canadiens (replaces Markov on roster)

Martin Brodeur New Jersey Devils (starter)
Henrik Lundqvist New York Rangers
Roberto Luongo Florida Panthers

West Conference

Tyler Arnason Chicago Blackhawks
Pavel Datsyuk Detroit Red Wings
Jarome Iginla Calgary Flames (starter)
Patrick Marleau San Jose Sharks
Mike Modano Dallas Stars
Ladoslav Nagy Phoenix Coyotes
Markus Naslund Vancouver Canucks (starter)
Joe Sakic Colorado Avalanche (starter)
Alex Tanguay Colorado Avalanche
Joe Thornton San Jose Sharks
David Vyborny Columbus Blue Jackets
Doug Weight St Louis Blues

Nicklas Lidstrom Detroit Red Wings (starter)
Scott Niedermayer Anaheim Mighty Ducks
Chris Pronger Edmonton Oilers (starter)
Kimmo Timonen Nashville Predators
Lubomir Visnovsky Los Angeles Kings
Sergei Zubov Dallas Stars

Manny Fernandez Minnesota Wild
Miikka Kiprusoff Calgary Flames (starter)
Tomas Vokoun Nashville Predators

If you are interested in a real all star game you will have to watch the AHL.

Great job for the nod to Teppo Numminen, he's having a great year, despite the lack of goal production. What about Cheechoo in the west?
If you want Cheechoo who do you drop to add him (remember you need one player per team).
Ah yes, the old one player from each team problem. I forgot about that. But to answer the question without addressing that issue, I would definitely drop Arnason. Wasn't he a healthy scratch in a game recently?
Tyler Arnason is the top scorer on the Chicago Blackhawks. And we need a Blackhawk. But yes they did recently healthy scratch him to try to light a fire under this team.
I do believe all of the ideas you've offered for your post. They're very convincing and can
definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for starters.
Could you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
