NHL all-star selections are a joke.
That doesn't mean Kaberle didn't deserve to be there. He was and still is one of the top puckmoving defenceman in the league. The only reason he's not in the All-Star game this year is because the NHL isn't going to take 2 players from a horrible team (I believe there's only 42 all star spots, leaving 12 multiple selections), and Kessel is a much more marketable player.
