NHL All Star Rosters Revealed

Last night, the NHL revealed the risters for the 2007 NHL All Star Game. I have already announced who I would have picked. I have the roster format correct in my predictions. 21 player, 3 goalies, 6 defenceman and 12 forwards per conference with at least one player per team. This is better than the ESPN predictions where none of the three held to this format. It appears that the NHL did not pick players who would be worthy of an All Star Game appearance but have questionable availability due to injury. Thus players like JS Guguere, Chris Pronger and Jarome Iginla were not selected by the NHL. That is the biggest source of discrepancy on the two lists. At a point in the future, I will address the discrepancies between our lists and explain why I chose the players that I chose and not the ones that the NHL selected. Here are the All Star rosters:

Jason Blake Forward New York Islanders
Jay Bouwmeester Defenceman Florida Panthers
