Conspiration against Price

Seriously, I can't believe that Carey isn't on that list. He deserves it much more than Captain Gio.

Niemi
Fleury
Giguere
Khabibulin
Anderson

Wow.....

No Price, strange, to this point he is worthy that's for sure.

Not sure if this is a joke or something...

Anderson Backstrom Brodeur Bryzgalov Fleury Giguere
Halak Khabibulin Kiprusoff Lundqvist Luongo Miller
Niemi Quick Rinne Thomas Vokoun Ward

For guys like Khabi and Brodeur fair enough, but the others they must honestly be joking. Also Miller and Giggy? They aren't having great seasons.

Okay also Plekanec not listed but check:

Alfredsson Backstrom Booth Briere Bergeron Carter
Cammalleri Crosby Datsyuk Doan Franzen Gaborik
Getzlaf Gionta Heatley Hejduk Hemsky Hossa
Iginla Kane Kessel Koivu M Kopitar Kovalchuk
Krejci Lecavalier Malkin Marleau Morrow Nash
Oshie Ovechkin Parise Perry Richards B Richards M
Roy Ryan Sedin D Sedin H Selanne Spezza
Staal E Stamkos Stastny Smyth St Louis Tavares
Thornton Toews Umberger Vanek Zetterberg

All these guys are but Plek isn't? Half of them either are past their prime, not as good or at minimum not having a great enough season to justify being listed over Plek.

I don't think Price is quite an all-star yet, to be fair. Playing great, no complaints, but it's been 15 games.

That said, given the other goalies on that list, I am surprised he was left off.

I am astonished Plekanec wasn't on, but given the depth of NHL centers it makes sense.

Perhaps after the Price/Komisarek year, they're being intentionally picky on Habs players for fear we vote them all in!

Remember what happened last time Price went to an All Star game? Personally I say thank you for leaving him off the ballot. Next year's soon enough.

They must have to pick a certain amount from each team.

Cammalleri should be there ahead of Gio but whatever.Don't really end up watching these games anyways so the less Habs that play in them the better us not worrying about injured players

Does there still need to be 1 player from each team in the game?

If not, I'm not sure any Habs will make it...except for Subby at the Young Stars game

Yups. The list pissed me off too.

No Price? No Plekanec? Those 2, other than Markov, are the players I want to represent Montreal.

I cant believe Brodeur, Miller and Fleury are there. We cant say it's based from last year because TIM THOMAS made the list and he sucked last year.

Unfair.

Price, Bobrov, Plek = not big names. They don't fill seats, but Kovy and other washed up dudes will.

Can't you still make it even if you're not on the ballot? If you play lights out...

Fleury? Really? God this guy is overrated accross the league it's unbelievable. He was aweful last year AND this year.

I don't know who wrote this list, but he's been influenced a lot by the reputation of players vs what they actually did this season and in the last. This is not the Olympics, this is the all-star game, you don't need to catter to old vets, they'd rather not go anyway.

Of course you can this is just for the 12 starters I guess.

The monkey that TSN uses to pick the winners in the playoff's must have picked that list.. That's the only way I can figure the Leafs getting more players on there than the Caps and many other teams? No Semin? Really?

This is why the All Star game is such a joke year after year.

Who cares... that's just for the 6 starters voted by the fans. The other 36 players are picked by the NHL and don't have to be on that list.

Also, you can write-in players, so we'll be able to vote for Plekanec or Price.
