But, then again, it may indeed just come down to a numbers game. I don't know why I'm talking about this at length. It's just the F'ing all-star game.
Doesn't matter about outplaying them, it's that they make sure every team is represented, and with that Carter may be the odd mad out because it's much easier to take Timonen and maybe Gagne. Timonen may even be a lock just because there isn't a laundry list of defensemen. You probably figure, Timonen, Markov, Kaberle, Chara, Ballard is a lineup on defense that could happen.
