If you made all-star teams from every Province and State. Which team would be the best?




Team Ontario
M.Cammalleri-J.Thornton-C.Perry
R.Nash-M.Savard-B.Boyes
A.Brunette-J.Carter-P.Sharp
C.Stillman-M.Richards-J.Williams (CAR)

D.Boyle-D.Wideman
B.Campbell-C.Pronger
R.Blake-B.Burns

S.Mason
M.Smith

Ontario is VERY deep at Center sporting 4 of the top 7 centers in the league in terms of points. There should be no shortage of goals from Carter, Nash, Boyes and Cammalleri. They also have the best penalty kill duo imaginable in Richards-Sharp. Their defense is highly skilled offensively but have no problems playing physical. Goaltending is decent with Young Gun Mason patrolling the pipes and Smith providing dependable relief.




Team Quebec
S.Gagne-V.Lecavlier-M.St.Louis
A.Tanguay-M.Ribeiro-JP Dumont
D.Perron-D.Brassard-S.Bernier
A.Burrows-PM.Bouchard-G.Latendresse

ME.Vlasic-MA.Bergeron
S.Robidas-K.Letang
A.Picard-F.Beauchemin

M.Brodeur
R.Luongo

Try putting pucks in this goal, Quebec is equipped with the two best goalies in the NHL. Defense is a tad lacking but they make up for it with skilled Top 6 forwards and some Bottom 6 wingers willing to grind it out as well as score. Quebec's top line is the epitome of Dangerous.




Team Michigan
D.Booth-D.Weight-D.Moss
A.Hilbert-M.Modano-M.Grier
J.Abdelkader-R.Kesler-C.Larose
M.York-D.Legwand-B.Rolston

B.Rafalski-M.Hunwick
J.Finger-T.Gleason
A.Greene-J.Wisniewski

T.Thomas
R.Miller

With the exception of Brian Rafalski Michigans defense is weak. Although not as weak as Left Wingers which include the likes of Michael York (1GP) and Andy Hilbert has to be used as a left-winger. Michigan has aging centers but are still capable and have Ryan Kesler ready to take the reigns for The Great Lake State. Goaltending is rock solid as they boast the NHL top 2 American Goalkeepers.




Team New York
D.Brown-C.Conroy-P.Kane
C.Higgins-T.Connolly-B.Gionta
E.Cole-M.Reasoner-L.Stempniak
N.Foligno-T.Marchant-P.Kaleta

Z.Bogosian-M.Komisarek
M.Schneider-F.Boullion
R.Scuderi-M.Lashoff

J.Howard
N/A

This team hits and hits hard with last year's top hitting Forward and Defensemen (Brown/Komisarek). The Top 6 has players with a nose for the net in Gionta and Higgins. Unfortunately for Howard he is New York's only goaltender (in both NHL and AHL). The defense is decent but not outstanding.




Team BC
P.Kariya-S.Horcoff-D.Setoguchi
M.Lucic-J.Sakic-C.Kobasew
A.Ladd-B.Morrison-T.Brouwer
A.Voros-K.Turris-M.Recchi

S.Weber-J.Gorges
B.Seabrook-K.Alzner
B.Jackman-D.Hamhuis

C.Price
J.Labarbera

As probably expected from the BC Boys. This team is hardnosed, gritty, big, mean and hard-hitting. Goaltending is good but Price is backed-up by an invalid. The defense is formed by players who are good in both ends. Weber and Seabrook and launch cannons from the point.




Team Alberta
R.Whitney-D.Langkow-J.Iginla
R.Smyth-B.Little-S.Doan
R.Bourque-S.Reinprecht-K.Versteeg
C.MacArthur-M.Comrie-J.Lupul

M.Green-D.Phaneuf
S.Niedermayer-S.Souray
J.Bouwmeester-M.Commodore

Osgood
Auld

It is clear that Alberta has the best defensemen. Their first pairing is comprised by the two players who most likely will be the two best in the NHL one day. Green, Souray and Bouwmeester are all top 5 in goals for defensemen. Their offense is strong and fairly even down to the last line. Osgood holds down the pipes competently with Auld providing relief.




Team Saskatchewan
B.Morrow-R.Getzlaf-C.Armstrong
S.Hartnell-P.Marleau-D.Dorsett
C.Kunitz-J.Stoll-W.Belak
C.Glencross-B.Laich-B.Bitz

L.Schenn-C.Sarich
B.Clark-W.Redden
N.Oystrick-N.Schultz

C.Ward
D.Ellis

Saskatchewan is decent offensively as long as you don’t count the Right Wings. They consist of a lot of Power Forwards and Defensive Defensemen Defensemen. Ward is the clear starter for the Saskatchewanites.





Team Minnesota
Z.Parise-P.Meuller-J.Langenbrunner
J.Blake-M.Cullen-B.Wheeler
J.Taffe-T.Peterson-D.Backes
C.Stuart-R.Carter-K.Okposo

T.Gilbert-K.Ballard
M.Niskanen-A.Goligoski
J.Leopold-P.Martin

J.Curry
A.Berkhoel

Minnesota is very deep at Right Wing but are not as fortunate when is comes to Left Wing and Center as they drop off quickly after the second line. All defensemen are more or less equal down to the Leopold-Martin pairing. Goaltending is a major issue for this team. They sport two Wilkes-Barre Penguins in net.



So Who do you think would be the best teams? If anyone wants to make another (Manitoba, Wisconsin, Mass., Team Maritimes?) GO FOR IT!!

Team Saskatchewan is pretty sweet...didn't realize know who was from there.

The best of the group is Team Ontario but I'd have Turco in net.

Team Michigan would win out of the teams from the States just because of the goaltending.

Team Maryland -

Jeff Halpern.


...

EDIT: Also, David Hasslehoff

EDIT EDIT: Mike Rowe could be on defense.
Jim Henson could be goalie: Fozzie glove on one hand, Kermit glove on the other. Unstoppable.
