Osgood Named to West All-Star Team

Rate this topic

91 posts in this topic

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.

But that is not an all-star game, that is a "let's get a player from every team together and have a game and see who wins" game. Bad idea, especially now in Baseball where home field is decided by the all star game results!

Good for Ozzie. An all-star performance in the first half, and a spot on the team for someone whose numbers truly merit it.

Well done, Oz! :thumbup:

Yay Ozzie! :siren::siren: He didn't get shafted for once! I am so proud to be a Wings fan right now.

Also, :lol: at the Sedin twin who didn't make it. He should come anyway and hide in the lockerroom, and between periods they can pull a twin switch.

Actually, it probably makes a little more sense for baseball. If the results of the game could impact your team in the future, you'd probalby want representation from your team there.

In terms of the NHL, if you need someone from your team in the game to give you motivation to watch, are you really a fan of the game?

:colorbounce: :goalie1: :punk:

That's the best news all year so far! He really deserved it, and I was terribly worried he'd get denied.

i dont see why rafalski isnt there, he is right behind lidstrom in points. i have no idea why he isnt there

I have this weird feeling that he still may go. I think maybe one of the D will decide not to go and Raffy will fill in. Who knows.

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! happy :)

I agree there, but I don't think they want Detroit to represent a quarter of the guys on the roster. :lol: I'd rather Ozzie get his recognition than Rafalski.

i was actually about to say that although i got no problem with ozzie being there i think rafalski should of been there lol ....rafalski is 2nd in pts in the nhl on defence and theres guys like jovanovski and keith in and hes not .... although i do understand that they need to have other teams have at least one representative

Okay so I am for sure going to get his All Star jersey. Thing is if I order it today do you guys think I'd get it before the 26th?

Hey, I'm just glad Anze Kopitar is going to be there, representin' the All Star +/- giants of hockey.

:thumbup:

Oh wait, he's -12 and 28th in the league in points. "All Star" :blink:

Guess they just pick the dude with the most points from each team.

so i'm guessing nabby is the starter and ozzie gets 2nd peiord and manny gets 3rd but they way they have it on nhl.com its many nabby and then ozzie last which makes me confussed. ozzie should not be the 3rd peiord goalie

Wow Rafalski got robbed! I know you need to represent every team but when the league leading Wings have 11 MORE points than the second place team you deserve more players than anyone else. Only positive I see out of this is Brian gets a break and he's logged a lot of minutes over the years when jersey made annual extended playoff runs.

Pronger's only in there on his name recognition. Jovo and Phaneuf too. They're +2, -9, and 0, respectively, in plus-minus on the season. Not good indicators for supposed All-Star defensemen.

At least Pronger's on the West instead of the East, though. Means he can't goon it up against any of OUR guys.

Leclaire was robbed. It should be Ozzie, Nabakov and Leclaire.

But I'm thrilled for Ozzie!!!!!!
