Except for the ones who were better like Vehanen and Ramo, right?

If you're looking to give Hasek credit for his performances where he "wasn't bad for a guy in his late 40s," you're fully entitled, but considering it noteworthy in the context of his career (and other all time greats) is simply missing the boat.

Which is why we should be skeptical of fan-centric all-star games as opposed to the post-season all star awards, right?

Similarly, Matt Ellison had as many points as Jaromir Jagr...are we really going to indict Jagr on that?
Certainly if the claim was that his KHL years added something meaningful to his already superlative resume.
