What gave it away? The fact that one of the three forwards on the actual All Star Team wasn't top-5 in FW voting?
As for the actual team, and not to rain on anyone's parade here, but it was pretty obvious that writers were scrambling to put together teams with Swedes on it, and as there were no real deserving candidates, the "most famous" on D and FW got on there undeservingly. Moreso for Forsberg than Wikstrand, obviously, but Jones, McCabe and Trouba were all clearly better throughout the tournament.
