All Star selection is even more of a popularity contest than Hart and Pearson. The fact is: Feds has more individual and team trophies than Selanne. Since the point of hockey is to win, Feds trumps Teemu hands down.

Plus there's this little thing called "face to face contest" (which is an additional way to measure players against each other when it's close). Hasek beats Roy (OG98 and 02), Makarov beats Messier (outplayed him in 87, even though his team lost), Fedorov beats Selanne (97 and OG98).

Excellent post.
