The NHL system of "it takes time to get your name out there before people notice and give you recogntion" is bogus.

The only reason for it being that way is because the NHL all-star game takes place in the middle of the season. The Pro-bowl takes place at the end of the season making it much easier to look back and decide who's had good seasons, and who deserves to go.
