It looks like they tried to get representation from every team, not sure why, they didn't do it last year. That is the only reason I can come up with as to why Legace is there instead of Leclaire.

I also can't figure out how you can have one Sedin there without the other.

Henrik is leading the Nucks in a lot of categories. Yes Daniel is 2 pts behind and has 13 more goals, but I think Henrik has an assist on almost every one of those, and he has more than 20 assists.

I think if I had a twin and we played together for so long, I would have wanted to get drafted to separate teams, to establish my own identity. But then again show me a better way to come into the league and make a bigger impact than playing with some one that you know as well as you know yourself.

Good for Ozzie! I would have put LeClaire in there over Legace, but whatever.

Nice representation from the Wings. :thumbup:

AWESOME! Great Wings packed lineup this year

One thing that bugs me a lot is the attempt to represent as many teams as possible instead of taking the most deserving. Rafalski got snubbed big time! Second in defense points behind Lidstrom and far better plus/minus than the supposed "no brainer" Pronger. Duncan Keith in front of Raffy?

oh well I guess... Osgood, Lidstrom, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Babcock, suppose I should be happy :)

Its a crying shame that they tried so hard to get representation from every team. This ended up screwing some guys that deserve the bid. Brian Rafalski is second in defense scoring and should be an all-star.

Great for Ozzie, I really hoped they would give him the nod. He earned it.

I believe they did represent each team for the all star game last year. I remember thinking that there were so many players that didn't deserve to be there.

I am hoping, if Ozzie decides to go, that they put a mic on him during his period like they did with Turco last year.

I know it's a meaningless game, but I can't help being excited for it since the Wings are so well represented.

I think there stats are almost as identical as you can get, with the exception of one being the passer and one being the shooter.

Henrik has more assists, more points (by a whopping 2) and a better +/- (by a whopping 3). Daniel has more goals, GWG, shots, etc.

Oh I didn't mean to make it look like I was supporting the decision, I was just trying to throw some logic into why, because they are both playing very well, on a decent team. 24-14-4

That's what I was thinking.

There's a couple guys who probably deserve to be there before Legace, Leclaire definitely being one of them.

You're right, I went back and checked the rosters and every team was reprented, but I thought I had read a summary article saying that 24 or 26 teams were represented.

Oh and I know. I guess I am simply of the view that it does not make sense to pick one over the other. They should both be there or not.

OMG. OMG. OMG.

Is it stupid that I just cried about 5 seconds ago when reading this? I am so freaking STOKED right now. He so deserves and I am so damn happy he's getting recognition for it. WOW. These past two days for Ozzie has been the best ever.

No, not stupid. While I remain tear free ... I am pretty stoked for the guy.

100% agreed, I hate this invite some one from every team, what is this a 3rd grade classroom where you have to invite everyone in the class to your birthday or you can't hand out invites in class..

Seriously, an all-star game should be just that all-stars. Legace over Leclaire, no way.

Both of these guys deserve it, but because they need to invite a player from the worst team in the league, one of them misses it.

I am calling Shenanigan's on the whole thing!!

Captain O'Hagan: I swear to God I'm going to pistol whip the next guy who says, " Shenanigans."

Mac: Hey Farva what's the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy s*** on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?

Farva: You mean Shenanigans?

Mac: OOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Thorny: OOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

[as they hand the Captain their pistols]

I like that they have the rule that every team must be represented. It gives fans in every city a reason to watch. I certainly didn't mind that MLB had to select a Detroit Tiger every year despite the Tigers being the dregs of the league.

Anyway.....woohoo Ozzie! Wings hogging all the All-Star spots.
