Gotta love Drapes looking over at Cleary and saying "told ya?" and Cleary just says "yeah"

Nice to see Oz going to the All-Star game, Leclaire should have went instead of Manny, but at least the Oz is in. Nice to see so many Wings playing, too bad Raffy didn't make it though.

Is Rafalski definitely not going? I would think he would be part of the reserve roster...

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!

Which is RETARDED in my opinion. HATE that.

The ASG is just an exhibition. It means nothing. (Or it should.) It's just a fun little sideshow? Why would you not want to have as many people watching as possible?

So who is the starting goaliein the West if Luongo isn't playing?? It's gotta be Ozzy.

Why are there so many people hung up on whether Osgood will start or not??? He's going to play 1 period like the other 2 goalies. What difference does it make whether it's the 1st, 2nd or 3rd period? It's absolutely meaningless.

No lie, and it's an absolutely meaningless games in terms of NHL standings. Why can't people just be happy that he's in when he wasn't even on a ballot to start a season? That says a lot to me. Seriously people... (sorry, I didn't read responses in this thread other than this page, sorry if that came out attacking people)

Much congrats to him, he earned it and certainly deserved it, and this rough outing tonight does not take away from him deserving to be in there one bit.

Here's my All-Star selections. Players in italics are guys I would have selected had there not been a requirement to select players from every team; their replacement is noted in parentheses.

WESTERN CONFERENCE:
Goal:
Chris Osgood, Detroit
Pascal Leclaire, Columbus
Evgeni Nabokov, San Jose
Defense:
Nicklas Lidstrom, Detroit
Dion Phaneuf, Calgary
Brian Rafalski, Detroit
Sergei Zubov, Dallas
Chris Pronger, Anaheim
Niklas Kronwall, Detroit (Marek Zidlicky, Nashville)
Forward:
Henrik Zetterberg, Detroit
Pavel Datsyuk, Detroit
Jarome Iginila, Calgary
Ryan Getzlaf, Anaheim
Joe Thornton, San Jose (Anze Kopitar, Los Angeles)
Paul Stastny, Colorado
Mike Ribiero, Dallas (Radim Vrbata, Phoenix)
Marian Gaborik, Minnesota
Patrick Kane, Chicago
Daniel Sedin, Vancouver
Henrik Sedin, Vancouver (Brad Boyes, St.Louis)
Kristian Huselius, Calgary (Shawn Horcoff, Edmonton)

EASTERN CONFERENCE:
Goal:
Martin Brodeur, New Jersey
Tim Thomas, Boston (Rick Dipietro, NY Islanders)
Henrik Lundqvist, NY Rangers
Defense:
Andrei Markov, Montreal
Zdeno Chara, Boston
Sergei Gonchar, Pittsburgh
Wade Redden, Ottawa
Tomas Kaberle, Toronto
Jaroslav Spacek, Buffalo
Forward:
Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh
Vincent Lecavalier, Tampa Bay
Daniel Alfredsson, Ottawa
Jason Spezza, Ottawa
Dany Heatley, Ottawa
Alexander Ovechkin, Washington
Ilya Kovalchuk, Atlanta
Mats Sundin, Toronto
Mike Richards, Philadelphia
Martin St.Louis, Tampa Bay
Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh (Ray Whitney, Carolina)
Olli Jokinen, Florida

So even though the West is a significantly stronger conference than the East at this time, the Western All-Star team is still dominated by a handful of top teams while the East shows much more parity in who has top players.
