Dynamo Minsk fans voted (or almost voted) Janne Niskala and Rinne into the All Stars game, but KHL dismissed the voting anyway.
Here is the link to the Russian site:

Strating line-up for the West was Rinne, Niskala-Chara, Ovechkin-Datsyuk-Kovalchuk.

Don't forget the old man Jere Karalahti. He's averaging about 24 minutes per game with Niskala and fans love him there. I can bet they love and respect any of those 4 Finns much more than Evander Kane.
