KHL All-Stars Game

This year it is gonna be "Yashin Team" (best Russian players) vs "Jagr Team" (best foreigners). This game format was voted by fans who had two options: "Yashin vs Jagr" and "East vs West". The margin was very small, but first option came out on top.

There will be Skills Competition which is going to include 7 events:

- The Fastest Skater

- Shootout Skill

- Long Range Shot

- Zigzag Team Relay (I believe it is based on puck control)

- Goalie Competition

- Accurate Shooting

- Speed Relay

Captains had an option to choose two partners. Yashin chose Andrey Nikolishin(Traktor's C) and Alexey Kudashov(Lokomotiv's C). Jagr chose Marcel Hossa and Jakub Klepis.

The fan voting for starting five will start tomorrow.

The game itself is on Jan. 10th.

Each team will be made up of 9 forwards, 6 defencemen and 2 goalies.

Voting is supposed to have started on khl.ru yesterday for the starting 5 and the starting goalie. You have until December 22 to vote, after which the results will be made public.

The media will vote for the second lines and goaltenders, the results of which will be released Dec. 26

The rest of the players/replacements if necessary will be announced by the league on Jan 8.

keep giggling in my book he's a really good player who had a long-long outstanding carer. but you keep giggling.

Pro's: The veteran's game was really-really beautiful at the red-square. I expect our all-star game being just as. Also open air games always kick butt.

Con's: once the game is at the R-square you know that your average fan is not making it there. I am looking forward to watching the game, wish it was broadcasted in HD somewhere in US, but mostlikely will be watching it with the russiantvonline.com.

For all you haters - when you got nothing good to say, please shut up and don't say anything at all.

Please explain to me what's funny? The most devoted NT player in the last decade, came when asked if asked and the minute he was asked, while Mogilniy's, Fedorov's, Khabibulin's and etc. were playing hard to get. He captained in the NHL, he played in the all-star games in the NHL, and while his game droped a notch he's still one of the best Russian players out there.

There is a lot of fans who know nothing about Yashin even though the guy was in the league for so long, but this is understandable, because these fans depend a lot on the media. Once media chose Yashin as a scapegoat it was expected that a lot of people would be hating Yashin. What is not expected is that the GM's in the NHL are just as stupid. Just look at the Islanders. Since they signed Yashin they started making the playoffs consistently while having incredibly mediocre roster. Then what do they do? They buy Yashin out, one of the most consistent guys in the league, who gets you 0.8 ppg and rarely gets hurt. Well, expectedly the Islanders turn into a joke of a club, laughing stock of the league. I am not Yashin fan, he's never proven himself in the playoffs, but you know what, neither his teammates. Yashin also may be also liking money little more than the average NHL player, so what, can you blame him?

As an Islander fan, I hope Yashin loses becuase he's Yashin, and I also hope Jagr loses since he was the face of the Rangers. For us Islanders fans this is pretty much a lose lose haha

Once the rosters are voted in, there will be a list, I don't even know if you can still vote or not on the KHL site, some players will be voted in by the media too.

The highest amount of vote went to Ben Clymer on D for the team Jagr...the whole Belorus voted him in? Antonenko and Kalyuzniy are the hightest ranked forwards
