Pominville named to All-Star Game

Great for Captain! Definitely happy for him but...

No sign of Vanek?

Also, Adam to play in rookie Game.

Vanek's too slow for an ALL-STAR game

No Vanek? BS.

Good for Poms though, he deserves to be there.

How can Grags make NHL.com Top 6 Rookies but not make Rookie Game? Did they realize he sucks, or is he too old?

I'm surprised to see Pominville make it over Vanek for the roster of my least favorite game of the year. Maybe that's a matter of there being less competition at RW than LW.

Whatever. The game is complete crap and I probably wouldn't watch it unless half of the roster made it in.

I think it would have been hard for them to justify putting two guys in from a team that is as, to put it kindly, inconsistent as we have been.

It's not a rookie game.

It's just for the Skills Comp.

If you look at the list, I think there are only two D (Faulk & Larsson).

No Vanek makes me chuckle. He's been our best player and a top 10 NHL forward all season.

Thanks NHL, force feed us some more players from Boston and NYR instead of deserving players.

congrats.

no way OV should be in over Vanek...but we all know the reasoning behind that.

it may have come down to TV or Poms, who knows, but Captain/Lady Byng guy probably has more fans upstairs.

They only put Ovie in so Kessel can troll him when Ovie gets picked last.

Is it still based on fan voters? I barely bay attention to all of the ASG shtick anymore.

Obviously we should chip in and buy Vanek some goofy hats.

Vanek hasn't been 100% lately. Any chance he declined and Pommer got it instead?

Wonder if this was directed towards Vanek?

I would say more likely for Selanne and Lidstrom.

Just the starters; hence why Ottawa Senators are in it.

Pominville might be the last one picked this year!

Congrats to him though.
