If visiting players were forced to go out on the ice after they are announced as a star I would love to see them get it more often I could get a few last Boooos out

I don't disagree there seems to be a touch of homerism in the three star selection, but I don't think in this case it was very extreme.

I think we've seem far worse in other cities. And it probably comes down to whomever does the selection. Does anyone know who does the selection at home games?

Anyways, Tavares played well for part of the game, but he wasn't the Islanders' best player, Nabokov was. He kept his team in it for the first 40 minutes when Tavares was still sleeping, and still played well for the last 23 minutes.

If it had been my decision, he would have been 3rd star.

Kane and Burmistrov were likely the two best players on the ice tonight. Antro played well, but not deserving of a star.

edit: Tavarez was a -1 tonight
Noel called Kane "ok".

It's just a novelty. Not like Crosby was sitting in the dressing room waiting for his name to be called, and started crying when it wasn't.

edit: or maybe he was

Molson cup is far from a novelty!

Tavares was directly responsible for Burmis goal which tied it up. He played it like Burmi would drop pass to buff. If Burmi had, Tavares had a breakaway. Instead Burmi was able to walk into the slot and tie it up.

I think this is pretty well par for the course across the league when the home team wins.

In Boston for example all were Bruins.

Yeah, but what's the scale? What did he say about everyone else? Frankly, any coach will also tell you that until they watch the tape they won't know for certain how a specific player was.

Other than eating a couple free pizzas, Tavares wasn't great. The Jets dominated 55 minutes of the game. I thought Byfuglien deserved a star over Antropov.

Completely agree. Tavares had three points and was minus one for the game. I think that says it all for him.

Buff provided a lot of stability and got an important goal (I suppose they all were). Would've been very deserving of a star.

I'm just scared that when Tavares hits free agency, he's going to remember that we didn't give him a star and write us off before the team even makes an offer

except for when Teemu gets a star right... then it's one last chance to cheer... LOUDLY. too bad CBC didn't show that in their broadcast last year.

Do the 3 stars affect anything? I mean if it doesn't why not let the home fans cheer their players some more

Why though? Neither of his goals was spectacular by any means.

Goal 1: It bounced off the top of Pavs' pad and in.

Goal 2: Was a light backhander through Pav's legs.

Again, neither of the goals was highlight worthy, the rest of the game Crosby was almost invisible, except during the "Mario's Poolboy" chants and booing.

Personally Malkin played one hell of a game, that kid has skill. Though Pavs did rob him a few times, I thought he played better than Crosby.

Tavares, aside from his goal (which was a giveaway by Engstrom), he didn't play all that good. Yeah he had 3 points, but that was a matter of him touching the puck first before it eventually made it to the goalscorer.

It was nothing like the play Antro setup with Little burying the goal.

Just my $0.02 cents.

What's funny too, is that the Game Summary the NHL puts out, usually names who picks the 3 stars. None of them have that part filled in for Jets home games so far this year.

One example: http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreport...3/GS020070.HTM

I heard that. Can't say it sounded like an forthright assessment of his game. He sounded more annoyed with the question.
