Kinda disappointed Zherdev is not on it, but I guess he didn't prove enough yet.
Ok this all-star thing is a sham. How is Zherdev not on the voting? Drury and Gomez? Please they don't belong there they aren't all-stars. Niko Zherdev is our all-star and has more of a reason to be voted on before those other guys. It should be:
its actually not that big of a deal because the voting is only for the starters isnt it? the selected coach will be responsible for selecting the rest of the team. So if Z and Dubi keep up their pace they have a good chance to be on the team especially Z. With Brodeur out Lundqvist is the front runner goalie right now.
I think Rangers fan have to start a write-in Zherdev campaign NOW and keep it going strong all through the voting. I think most of the NHL will agree with us that Z is more deserving than Dru, Gomerz, Nazzy or Redden without fail.
You guys make it seem like you've never seen an all star ballot. Its usually filled with past all star game players. Drury being the exception, but he is one of the more popular US players in the game.
doesnt matter, these are only for the starting lineups. And I would agree, these were probably compiled prior to the season, which is kinda silly. Obviously with their play, Z and dubi can make the team regardless by being selected. I would think Hank is the only player on the team with a chance at cracking the starting lineup anyway, which matters less in hockey than any other sport as shifts are all of 0:45.
