Why would Blake (played and coached for Montreal) be on Team West?
Blake as a coach would be Team East; Blake was also a great player and is deserving of being selected to the team; Dick Irvin was an amazing coach as well (and coached Blake).
I could see arguing to replace Adams with Punch Imlach or Tommy Ivan, but Toe Blake isn't even West-eligible.
