Giroux, he deserves it more than any.

Went with G and Richards. I think Bob deserves a look, as well as Briere. We all know how great Kimmo is but he will never be appreciated by other fans.

Had a strong start but has fallen off the pace that got him so many votes. I'd say no right now.

Since we're only going to get a pity nomination, much like the Islanders, Devils, Oilers, etc. I say all our team complains about minor nicks and bruises so that we can send Betts. Nobody works as hard as Betts does for as little credit as he gets. If Laperriere were still around, I'd say to send him.

Bettman would never let it happen, but even if it's just an ASG, I feel insulted about our team getting a pity nomination.

We need to win to get Lavi into the game. Which would be both hilarious and sad if he was the coach and only had one of his own players.

Richards, Giroux, Kimmo, Briere.

I don't think prongs will play since he is pretty beat up.

While I'd like to see Pronger there I can't see them naming him this Tuesday when he is still a way from returning... and we don't even know if he will be activated and ready to play by game day. I suppose they can name him and replace him if he is a no go, but personally I don't see that being the case... I'd give him a vote if he were healthy; he isn't and I didn't.

I did vote for Kimmo in his place, as I feel he is worthy... but the question is if he will be selected; will the panel see it that way? I hope so.

I also selected Briere for his timely and often goal scoring and for him having his line running on all cylinders and carrying the team -- although we can argue that the other guys are making him what he is -- I kinda think his flair will get him in.

I voted back when this was opened and I believe I also selected Richards for being the leader of the team... in points, assists and in the Room; it is his team, and they are an elite bunch over the first half of the season... Again, I don't know if the panel will see that with the limited center spots that will remain after the marque names are already selected, along with hopefully Briere... I hope so also in this case.

While Giroux deserves to go, IMO he won't get a sniff due to the numbers crunch at center... and won't be a wing either.

Bob once deserved consideration... but he has lost his job on the team... how could he be chosen for the entire League.

The rest either don't have the name or don't shine enough on a National scale... I'd be surprised if three Flyers are selected... but not because I believe there are not three deserving.

I am fairly certain that Pronger won't play under any circumstances.

Yeah, Pronger isn't going to play, but he might get the honor and then withdraw.

Briere. He has 20 goals. He hasn't necessarily been the best player but people want to see goals so the NHL will throw him on the board for the draft. Not that he doesn't deserve it, but I'd like to see Giroux or Richards go, but I think it is going to be Briere and only Briere.

It's hard to not vote in someone who is on pace for 42 goals.

Also, Stamkos is ****ing sick. It's hard to believe that he's 3 years younger than Crosby and putting up similar numbers on a less talented team.

Yeah, that's what I'm saying. It's not that he doesn't deserve it or anything, but I'd rather see Richards or Giroux go because I like them more and it is unlikely that the Flyers will get more than one player on the team.

Went with Richards and Giroux. Should have voted for Briere too, so add one to whatever he gets.

I think he definitely should. He's a very smart defenseman.

I said richie, giroux, briere, leino and hartnell lol. Realistically though, I think giroux, briere, and possibly richie will make it.

But from what I've heard that one need only be a Rookie for the Rookier part of the Skills Competition... But do we have a 'real' classified rookie to be included?

To me that is a moot point though since they have to include a Flyer in the actual AS Game... If only due to the fact that we are a Major Market and NBC as well as the NHL would want our fans viewing... but even more importantly the Flyers are at the top of the Conference, and at time the entire League, and have quite a few quality players who deserve to be there.

True the Flyers don't have a flashy fan favorite that captures the fancy of many fans who don't dig deep into what makes up an All Star type layer... but those who will be choosing should have a handle on that... They should include the deserving players after they include the sexy players that grab most of the attention.

I voted for Giroux and other for Bob, but I think Briere is likely to make it.
