I get why people dislike him going but really, it amounts to a light practice in terms of workload and Carey has seemed to genuinely enjoy it. I'm not concerned with that, I don't watch or care about the game.

You should knock yourself out then.

They all do. Nothing new. Thing is, I think he will pass. Don't be surprised if he gets 'injured' before the game. He wants a break too I think, and his mind is not up for the game, with the way his very mediocre team is playing in front of him. Me guess he wants to warm up his tush down south for 3-4 days.

No, Cole is on pace for a little less than 60 points on a really bad team. That's not "all star".

Price is the only thing close to an all star and with every team needing a rep it makes sense he'd go.

So Price is a 3 time all star...I wonder if he'll get 12 or more in his career.

Well you can't send our best player to the All-Star game since he's not flashy or anything (Gorges).

So the choice was between Cole and Price. Cole has been amazing, but Price has been good most of the season as well. There are a lot more good forwards than their are goalies in the Eastern Conference, so it's not hard to see why Price goes over Cole.

I don't think he's been the habs best player, but this isn't necessarily an award for the habs best player. The goalie position in the East is pretty weak. I don't have a problem with Price being selected. He'd be about 4th on my list of habs this year though, not knocking him, I just think a few guys have been better.

For real title should be changed because he wasn't snubbed

Between him and Fleury, Price should go since he is on a much worse team then pittsburgh.
I don't think he's clearly better than Vokoun, but, I won't argue the selection.

I guess you miss the countless defensive breakdowns, the long stretches of time iwth the puck in the habs zone and the countless games Price has been great in, eh?

Don't go!
You have other things to care about than an pointless game in a boring city.

I dont think some of you get that Price has not been as elite as last year but Price is still a good player playing average like everyone else on this team.... that being said Price has also started to become a house hold name making his 3rd apperance to the allstar game kind of like ovie does he deserve it this year... no but heis a house hold name I expect Price to be at many more all star games in his career not that they mean anything but anyways congrats I guess

I like Cole, but he's not an all-star.

I don't remember saying anything of the sort. Do you think other goalies with better numbers never face these similar circumstances, just curious? Is this a situation limited to the habs and Carey Price. I wasn't knocking him, he's got a good case for 3rd in the East. I don't think it's clear cut, but more a case of the habs needing to be represented and the Goalie position being the most suitable position to be represented with. Cole/plekanecs/gorges have been the habs best players imo, but they are outclassed in their positions, where as Price hasn't been.

I haven't read anything past that post but no one, let me repeat for clarity, NO ****ING ONE, has been playing at an all star level. You're an experienced fan, do you see any good performances from the habs ? Come the **** on. Not one single ****ing hab should be nominated for the all star game.

Also, I think if we have to nominate someone at all costs it probably would be a close call between Cole and Price. Cole would be a clearer choice but he was not great at the start, and he hasn't been great lately. But same thing with Price really.

Anyone who thinks Price is clear cut choice is blind for one reason or another.

What a joke. Someone using the molson cup as proof of anything loses all credibility instantly.

Still remember when Theodore won all moslon cups despite sucking terribly. This situation is highly reminiscent of that.

If any goalie needed the AS weekend to "chill" and relax...it's Carey. Good for him, obviously. The guy is so overworked.
