Why would they pick Henrik Lundqvist?? He's had a subpar year so far and is least deserving out of the 3 goalies...

I love Henrik Lundqvist, but are they going on past performances or what??

They had to pick someone from the Rangers.

NYR needed a representative.

Also, pretty pathetic that Kovalev is taking the spot of a deserving player, like Elias or Kessel.

Suprised by the inclusion of Thomas. Manny has been the better Goalie this year.

Thomas: 23 GP, 16-4-3, 2.13, .932
Fernandez: 18 GP, 13-3-1, 1.96, .932

I guess they couldn't take both, and they couldn't take neither, so they just went with the guy who played more games.

Should be Zherdev and Ward, not Staal and Lundqvist.

Kovalchuk gets in over Little and Kozlov, which is too bad IMO. Ilya does not deserve the honor this year, although he had been shafted a couple of times in the past.

There will certainly be more people snubbed for the honor this year than in the past for the East due to the ballot stuffing in Montreal.

Price

From the Eastern-All Star post.

Pretty close Just needed Heatley over Kessel, which makes sense since Boston had 3 already.

I already said this on another board but I'm hoping nobody watches and ratings go to ****. Maybe then the league will reformat the voting process. What an absolute disgrace this year.

It's a shame to see Staal and Kovalev over guys like Semin, Kessel, and Richards. This one player/team method is crap.

every team needs to be represented. and because Habs fans stuffed the votes to get 4 of their players in there, other more deserving players can't go

I can see Price and Markov, but Komisarek and Kovalev should be replaced

Yes. A little disappointing that the highest scoring defenseman in the league (PPG wise) is sitting at home...maybe he was snubbed because of his injury or because of Mr. 3 points Komisarek, who knows.


Anyway, to avoid sounding completely whiny...it's kinda neat that Streit made it.

Considering the ridiculous "at least one player from each team" rule, the eastern team looked pretty decent actually. Except for Komisarek and Kovalev of course. But the western team player choices looked worse.

karma already did strike Kovalev for his ridiculous snub last season. A snub far greater than anybody has a claim to this season.

Every fan base should sit down and cheat with scripts you mean? And dedicate their whole lives to voting during a short span of time? It doesn't make certain players more deserving just because they've been scripted into a lineup.

All things considered, better selections than the West. With the starters named as they were, and the whole "every team" thing, there was pretty much no chance for Semin/Elias/Kessel without leaving out Savard (which would be a mistake), and no chance for Green without leaving out Chara (another mistake). It's not like the West where Tkachuk and Modano are better than Boyes and Richards/Ribeiro.

If Kovalev and Komisarek weren't voted in, then we'd have Green and Elias in. Really the only problem with the team if you have to have a rep from every squad.
