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.

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.

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.

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.gif

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

Also, laugh.gif 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?

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 smile.gif


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

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?
