I guess they had to pick someone if they wanted all 30 teams represented. Habs don't deserve to have anyone there.

Cole being in the top 20 of goals deserved a look imo.

I wish Emelin would play in the all star game, just picture this guy dishing out everyone on the ice.

Good for him. He deserves it.

Edit: Just realized that this isn't even the official list. Just speculation by NHL.com.

That's pretty sweet. Wait, there isn't some kind of "affirmative action" which guarantees representation by at least one person from each team, is there? He might very well be the only Hab close to deserving of nomination regardless, though (as good as Cole has been in stretches).

Didn't deserve it this year. Cole did.

Bummer he didn't make it.

Congrats Price.

Exactly my thought.

Not surprised at the nomination. He goes by default.

Benn should have been there. Idem for Tyler Seguin.

NHL All star is weird.


Henrik Lundqvist, Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Quick were unanimous selections to join Thomas, which left only two remaining spots. Carey Price earned a place and was neighboring Montreal's lone representative. The discussion for the final spot in net came down to five guys. Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury and Nashville's Pekka Rinne were eliminated quickly, and Brian Elliott beat out Minnesota's Niklas Backstrom and Mike Smith of Phoenix.

Nice Job Carey! You got chosen because nobody else on the Habs were good enough.
