Canucks added most players to the All-Star Game

From NHL.com:

"The Vancouver Canucks, who started the day with the best record in the Western Conference, also lead in another category -- most players added to the All-Star Game.

Four members of the Canucks were among the 36 veterans and 12 rookies announced by the NHL for the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game, to be played Jan. 29 in Ottawa.

Players from all 30 teams will be represented at the game, with four members of the Canucks added to the pool of players Thursday -- forwards Henrik and Daniel Sedin, defenseman Alexander Edler and forward Cody Hodgson, who was one of the dozen rookies selected to play in the game and the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Skills Competition, to be held Jan. 28."

Glad for Edler to get that recognition. We just have to hope that Chara doesn't take a run at someone.

Our other three representatives don't surprise me.

Thread title is a little off. Ottawa is sending the most players with 5.

Vancouver had the most players "added" after fan balloting.

Yeah, but we did it without having a rally or having a bunch of nerds sit at their computers voting for hours...

Gonna be great for Edler and Hodgson's development to be around a bunch of NHL allstars for a weekend.

Granted. However they are sending more players than we are, merited or not.

Not a big thing, just pointing it out.

I'm just hoping he doesn't turn into the Dany "I'm a ****ing all star" Heatley type. Brewing deep beneath that quiet Scandinavian exterior is the makings of an egomaniac!

I bet 100:1 that he would not [edit] develop that way.

But yes great for Hodgson and Edler. Edler was the dark horse, but by no way not deserving.

I got a question.

How far does 3.5 mil US go in Ostersund? Is it an expensive area?

12 rookies to be named, Hodgson is 5th in rookie scoring.

Hardly surprising.

No it is not very expensive, you would get a very nice and large (say 170m2) house for say 550.000 $. The median income is appr. 5% below the median for Sweden in general, the former is appr. 39.000 $/year. I think the largest income for a single individual last year was appr. 2 mill. $ (then you got some guys who are creative when it comes to taxation and might rank even higher).

Edler bet get his requisite 14 hrs of sleep while he's there, we need him rested and good to go for the rest of the season.

Good for him though, he deserves some recognition. Great for Cody too, I bet his parents are proud.

It's great to see Edler getting some props. I'm most excited for Hodgson though. Somehow I think the experience will be a great boost for his confidence.

Knew Eddie would make it. Who knew the Canucks had a future beyond the Sedins?

Now, let's hope Edler doesn't demand 5 years/30 million for being a ****ing All-Star.

Woot a Canuck not named Sedin or Luongo makes an allstar game.

would have been much happier if it had been bieksa, schneids, and rome that are going with cody, but whatever. it's not like dank and hank haven't weathered the extra travel and exhibition game and been just fine before.

The great thing about this is that it's NOT surprising that the Canucks have 4 guys going. They've got two elite players that are both in the running for the scoring title for the 3rd straight year, a defenseman who is currently tied for 3rd in Dman scoring and a rookie who is a former CHL player of the year and top prospect and is currently 5th in rookie scoring.

They all deserve to be there and aren't there based on anything else. Makes me stop and think when I'm a little tough on the Canucks how lucky I am to be cheering for a team with elite talent everywhere in the lineup.
