Youngstars game...

I know this probably has already been touched upon (I wasnt around for the conversations) but who the hell chooses what players are in and what players are not?

My understanding is that the requirements is that the player needs to be in his first pro contract....

if that's the case then how is Chris Higgins not in the youngstars game? Hell...even Latendresse should be there in front of players like Steen and Phil Kassel...

You have to give credit to phil for beating his cancer but since when has that been a by to the youngstars game? If that's the case then shouldnt Saku be in the All star game for coming back this season even better than last year and with one less eye to boot?

The only reason I could see Higgins not making it, is because of his lack of games played due to his ankle injury.

I dont know how Steen was even considered.........where the heck is Alexander Semin..... he IMO is one of the top 5 young players in the game hands down.

I'm pretty sure that Higgins is on his 2nd pro contract since he's in his 4th year of pro hockey.

the all star teams this season are a joke!

how latendresse, higgins and most importantly SEMIN are not on the team before Steen is unbeleivable!

From what I've heard, Jagr doesn't want to risk further injury and Pronger and Neidermayer are injured too. What do you want them to do, force themselves to play through pain for an All Star game in the build up to a playoff drive? That'd be smart.

There are a few choices and omissions that are curious decisions though, I agree. But 2 of the people you mention have broken/fractured feet and for all we know, the likes of Kovalchuk may have declined for other reasons. It will be a shame that some people won't be there, but instead of everyone moaning about who isn't there, how about we look forward to the people who will be? I know I will be cheering for Cristobal and Sheldon (and Yanic) and looking forward to Ovechkin playing alongside Crosby amongst other things.

Same thing for Semin too so this should be the reason that explains why they aren't there. Although Lehtonen is also in his 4th season of pro hockey...

Latendresse should definitely there though. Oh well, at least he's getting some big time rest and will come back rested and ready to kick butt for the stretch run.
