Girardi is going to get snubbed. And good. Let the man rest.

I understand as fans you dont want your guys to get hurt... but for the players it IS still a pretty nice honor to be named to the ASG you know... you guys are completely forgetting that, especially for guys like Girardi who likely would have never thought his name would be mentioned amongst the best of his position in the game. For that reason, I really hope Dan gets in. It's a nice award and an honor to be able to say you were an all-star.

I see where you are coming from with this, but I honestly think watching Girardi at an all-star type game would be boring. He's an excellent defenceman, but his game just doesn't translate to that type of game. He's got no real offense to speak off and smart positional play and breaking up passes doesn't make for good watching in that type of situation.

What they need to do is announce the 'All-star team' (although it should be at the end of the year). the All-star game should be replaced by the 'fan-celebration weekend' (or something similar). That way they keep all the fan voting crap and you make sure that the most exciting guys play that kind of game, even if they are not necessarily that 'stars' of the season

Lundqvist and Gaborik will be in the ASG and that's about it. Tortorella possibly coaching in it with a good January.

Henrik, Gabby, Girardi and Callahan should all be in it. That being said Id rather none of them play and just rest, especially Gaborik, but he was 28th in forward voting last week anyway.

Gabby was 28th? Wow thats horribly low. The fan voting should REALLY be put to an end... in ALL sports. Its always horrible that way.

Also, I hate that all teams need to be repped. Not all teams have a star... just how it is.

To any one saying "no" I agree but I'd love to see Gabby in there just for his own personal confidence boost, as well as some rookies i.e. Hags

Nobody deserves it more than Dan Girardi...Hank and Gabby will make it...I'd love for Cally to make it as a backup, but I know that won't happen...

Anybody know when they announce the players participating in the all star game, and all star weekend. I hope hagelin is in the speed contest. The all star break is just over 2 weeks away.

oh well they are first overall and get no respect for it so I am going to guess only Hank and Gabby

they will screw over Cally........Girardi and DZ are bubble so they wont make it.......Richards offensively a little down even though without him the team is not even close to the top in pts

Just Hank and Gabby will get chosen.

Girardi should but wont.

MDZ is close but this isn't his year.

Hank and Gabby.

Girardi should be there too but doubt he makes it. Good, he needs rest.

No East, West.

He'll be assigned to either team.

There are two Eastern Conference coaches, John Tortorella and Clause Julien.

Conference isn't that big of a factor.

NHL.com: Lundqvist, Girardi, Gaborik are All Stars; Hagelin for Rookie Team?

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=611147

Happy for Girardi to be recognized as an All Star, as well as Hagelin being up for the rookie team even though he didn't start with the team at the beginning of the season.

Hank and Gabby were expected as far as I'm concerned.

Wouldn't surprise me with injuries if Cally makes the squad as a replacement guy.

Congrats to all.
