General Message Board
Does anyone else think that this year's all star game is terrible for the NHL? I Live in Boston and I know I'm bias but look at Phil Kessel this year. 24-17-41 and is a plus 17!!! Now, before all the Hab's fans jump down my throat, i have one name for you, MIKE KOMISAREK. Yes, he's a D, but give me a break, look at his numbers and time on ice...point proven.
Anyway, i could name a couple other guys on the B's but like I said, we all know I'm Bias (David Kreji).
Anyone have any other thoughts???
The ASG is a JOKE. How is Kovalev starting.
Fans should vote based on points and performance. It shouldn't be a popularity contest.
Backstrom, Krecji, KESSEL, Hossa, Zetterberg??? These guys should definitely have been in there.
How about Semin???
But I can understand why Semin didn't make the cut after his fight with Marc Staal.
Guys like. Tkachuk, Modano, Hejduk, Brown???
What the Heck?
How about Phaneuf, Keith, MIKE GREEN.
Having Komisarek start in the all-star game, let alone play, is like having Darren McCarty start the All Star Game. He's a hometown hero with nothing to show for.
This may be one of the worst rosters ever picked.
Let's just hope the Skills Competition is organized and well run this year. Last years attempt was a joke.
what u guys dont understand is... All Star game tries to represent the whole league..
so if a few teams are doing exceptionally well and you end up picking most players from there... it be just a game between those two teams that u can watch at any time..
Example: San Jose vs Boston this year
OR Detroit vs Pitsburgh last year
OR Detroit vs Buffalo the year before...

This is partially true, but it doesn't change the fact that a guy like milan hejduk or dustin brown are not playing at an all star level this year. It just happens that the nhl wanted representatives from the kings and the avs. You could name 20 players that are more deserving to go than these two.
Savard, Krejci, Kessel...all deserve to go...
Wideman & Chara
Thomas and Manny both do also, but I understand them both not going...
Krejci, Kessel and Wideman are all young, and will hopefully get selected for years to come.
there are plenty of others on many teams...how about MIKE GREEN...wtf...he missed games and STILL has the numbers!
No one is forcing you to watch it. They only vote for him because he like in the top in block shots. Do really need another thread about this? It like the Fitzpatrick thing all over again and don't worry he shouldn't make it.
