Burns is more of a stretch as this point than Koivu, who is, at the moment, completely tearing up the league with 12 goals, and now tonight his 12th assist in only 28 games. That is extremely crazy for a first year, international - to - NHL ice player.
Just an FYI, the two teams are the Canadian team and Planet USA.

Sorry, but 24 points in 28 games is not what I would consider "tearing up the league". Jason Spezza (22g 47a in 45 games), Michael Cammalleri (28g 33a in 42 games), Simon Gamache (19g 36a in 43 games), etc are tearing up the league.

Yes, Koivu has adapted very well from international ice to NHL ice in his first season, but let's not overstate it and say he is tearing up the league.\

Panthersrule, With so many other Canadian goalies, I can't see Scott getting selected. Joel Kwiatkowski should make it. Krajicek may be a bit of a reach.

McDonald19, Lupul is a definite, Holmqvist is a maybe.

JMac, Although I like Suglobov a lot, Parise is probably going to be Albany's representative.

AHLMVP, There are so many players from Manchester that could be selected that Hauser probably won't get the nod, even though the game is in Manchester. It's possible that they could have 5 (Cammalleri, Kostopoulos, Brown, Smyth or Brown and Garon) without Lehoux.

Burns has slid but I think he's been doing pretty damn well for a defenseman turned forward turned defenseman as a nineteen year old playing in the AHL. His stats aren't on the sheet but he's probably one of the best defensemen the Aeros have at the moment.

Koivu was knocked out with an injury earlier in the season but when he came back, he really came back. He has had a lot of multiple point nights since then. AND given the fact that Houston is adapting the Wild's style of game, having a non-goal scorer like Koivu putting up as many goals as assists is really saying something. Most people would say yeah, 20 assists and 4 goals is good for Koivu but 12 goals and 12 assists is pretty damn good for a kid that was labelled having hands of stone and freezes up whenever he shoots.

Also factor in that Koivu hasn't EVER played in North America and had to get adjusted to the NHL ice. Spezza and Squids have played not only in the AHL but also the NHL, so it would be a disappointment if they weren't putting up good numbers.

Milwaukee could end up with 4.

Tiley is already in.

Hamhuis, Hutchinson, and Gamache could be selected

Yes, it would be a disappointment if they weren't putting up good numbers. However, I think that 69 points in 45 games is more than "good".

I also wasn't taking anything away from Koivu. I just wouldn't label them as "tearing up the league", that's all.

BuppY, I do think that both Wellwood and Ling will make the squad.

I'm in complete shock that LeNeveu wasn't selected. He was the only guy from Utah that I thought could make the team. My next guess would be Freddie Sjostrom for the Planet USA squad.

Not that it means much, but I'm surprised that Garon isn't starting over LaBarbera.

Remember, the starters are determined by fan vote. That being said, I am surprised that Manchester fans didn't get enough votes in to make Garon the starter. However, with so many guys to choose from, maybe it's not that surprising after all.

If Monarchs fans were voting for a goalie...I'm sure Hauser stole plenty of votes from Garon, even if his chances at making it are very slim.

hutchinson should be there, wyatt smith and timofei shishkanov to a lesser extent, though i'd be surprised. smith is one of those "quietly valuable" guys and shishkanov's numbers have been hurt by the time he missed due to injury.

Seven, if you include the assistant coach, trainer, and equipment manager.

With no player named from Houston for the Canadian team....do you guys think Mikkko Koivu will be heading to the All-Star game for the Planet USA team??

He is second in team scoring despite missing 12 games, top Euro scorer. I think he has a chance.

Correct, from what us Panther fans have heard from Rampage fans, Bouw hasn't been playing up to his max. potential this year.
