Can't imagine too many people here would be impressed if G goes down with another concussion in the name of the ASG...
Eh, how many injuries occur in the all-star game? I'm sure there have been some but its no more dangerous than if next week Lavy schedules an extra practice.

Would love to see Hartnell there, he's earned it and he's fun. Hopefully Kimmo will decline if asked, he already made a comment about how it should be for the younger guys so I don't think he wants to go.

If Komisarek went I think Hartnell deserves to go.

Plus, he earned it this season.

If you are worried that Jagr doesn't have the stamina to mess around for a weekend, then he is going to need a lot more than those couple days off during the break.
I disagree. Nothing like a skate-free weekend to rehab. I`d like for Timonen to take a pass if he's got anything nagging.

Totally agree on both parts. He's in the top 30 in points and has had more than one scoring/point streak this season. He's been very consistant this year, and I think he deserves to go.

I'd like to see the whole Hartnell-Giroux-Jagr line there to be honest.

Edit: Although good point brought up here that Jagr needs to rest.

Read is for the rookies. I think Couturier has a shot as well. I do not want Timonen there. Better to have him rest.

eh, the only reason why Komisarek was there was because the Habs fans stuffed the ballots, much like the Sens fans did this year

Fair call. However, I must admit that this year's concussion (over-diagnosis?) frenzy makes me a little bit nervous about exposing our players to any more risk than necessary.
