*******

My quick analysis… (I won’t bother commenting the fans’ choices because it would be a waste of time)

Nice surprises:

Roberto Luongo: like Mikster pointed out in a recent article, with a losing team facing 40+ shots night in night out Luongo still managed to have a better save percentage than Martin Brodeur. Very impressive if you ask me. It’s a nice surprise because he has a losing record so a guy like Ed Belfour for example could have been there before him. I’m glad Luongo finally gets the recognition he deserves.

Mark Messier: This will be his last all-star game, no doubt about it and altough this could have been a simple tribute to the guy, he still have the numbers to be there. 13 goals for already for the guy who should ”hang em up, already” to avoid ”embarassing himself” is doing pretty good right now… Take that ”nay-sayers”!

Question Marks:

Nick Boynton: Am I the only ont who thought that SERGEI GONCHAR or ZDENO CHARA should be there way before Boynton?? I realize that he’s having a great season for the Bruins but come on now, Gonchar is just the best scoring defensemen in the NHL… isn’t it what the all-star game is for, scoring? *With the injury to Stevens one of both could be named the replace him*

Keith Primeau: UH??? Keith Primeau? Are the Eastern Conference in need of leadership or what? MARC SAVARD, anybody? What about Mike Ribeiro or even Daniel Brière or Vincent LeCavalier? Hell you can put Robert Reichel before Primeau and his lousy 5 goals this season. When I want to see crosschecks & scraps in front of the net I watch the playoffs, thank you very much.

notes:

-The following teams will have no players representing them in the Allstar game… Buffalo, Carolina, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Anaheim, Edmonton.

-The two ROOKIE teams will be announced saturday on Hockey Night In Canada.

    Keith Primeau does not belong there. One of the crappiest lineups in years. I thought the all-star game was based on OFFENSE. Marc Savard has one of the best ppg averages in the NHL but they rather put a big, slow and washed up guy like Primeau. Gary Roberts as a winger??? Gimme a break. How about Michael Ryder??? The guy they won’t let play in the rookie game because he’s on his 2nd nhl contract yet he leads rookies for the Calder race and he’s got 6 more points than Roberts. Trent Hunter is another one that could’ve played before Roberts. People should understand that the all-star game is a show is not a true competition that counts. Leave the old crumbs at home and bring in the young blood that is faster, better and more exciting to watch.

    Some things never change…

  2. distance7 says:

    Hey, two Predators. This is the first all-stars they’ve had since season one with, you guessed it, Sergei Krivokrasov. Argue Timonen if you want, he deserves it, and there’s no way someone can say Vokoun doesn’t deserve it.

    But yeah, KEITH PRIMEAU!??! WHAT THE HELL?

  3. Bishop7979 says:

    I would add Messier to the question marks as well. yes he has 13 goals and thats good and all, but savard is having a hell of a season and really should have gotten in. And Premeau, really, what the hell is up with that one? 15 points? there are guys on Buffalo Pittsburgh and Carolina that could have taken his place. There are two rookies on pittsburgh and one on carolina that have more points that him, Malone Koltsov and Staal.

    Boyton? I dont get it. Any one of Gonchar, Chara, Tarnstrom, or Mccabe could have filled the spot better. I can understand the knock on Gonchar and Tarnstrom (both a minus 22 I believe) but come on 28 pp points for gonchar, how can you not include him.

    I will say I’m happy to see Nash get in. It will be great to see Nash vs Kovalchuk so to speak.

    Does anyone think nash can break 50 this year? I’m kinda curious what everyone thinks about that.

  4. Bishop7979 says:

    Damn I didnt even see Roberts on the list when i scanned through it. Your right he is anouther one that should be sitting at home that weekend. And hunter, good call.

  5. Lint07 says:

    Like I said, every now and then the NHL pays a tribute to old guys that are on the verge of retiring even though they definately don’t have stats to be on the allstar game.

    Mark Messier has more goals than Joe Thornton, Keith Primeau & Mike Modano… all on the Allstar roster.

    Mark Messier deserves to be there and I’m glad he is. Just for the sake of rewarding him for surpassing Gordie Howe in carreer goals is a class move in my opinion, but then again he’s had 13 goals so far this year. Keith Primeau on the other hand… uggh!

  6. cwthrash says:

    In a pre-game chat earlier today, Waddell said that Savard was one of the leading candidates discussed by the GMs. But it was the injury thing that stopped them from picking him. Waddell said he thought Savard really deserved it, but the consensus obviously went in another direction.

    The GMs, or at least some of them, had their own agenda for the East on this one. Messier got it for his lifetime achievement, that’s not really debatable. I don’t like it, but I can understand it enough to not get too pissed about it. As for the other questionable choices, probably best to look at the coaches for the East. I get the feeling their influence was greater than others. Don’t know enough about the politics of the game to state specific reasons but it seems too large a coincidence. As such, two or three more deserving players were snuffed.

    Now I’m kinda hoping we’ll see a fight in the game, would be the perfect ending to this.

  7. Lint07 says:

    Ryder will be on the rookie game… so will Hunter. Don’t worry.

    The NHL will have no other choice than to change this stupid rule.

  8. Lint07 says:

    Savard should’ve definately be invited over Primeau, no question.

    Messier deserves it for his career achievement AND his season. The guys has 13 goals when everybody thought he should’ve hang em up long time ago.

    I agree that he wouldn’t necesseraly have been chosen only for his stats but when you add up the fact that it is most definately his last year in the league, you have to invite him.

    I’ve seen worst choices before.

  9. Wills says:

    Take off Primeau, Messier and Roberts upfront for the East and add Savard, Ribeiro and Kozlov. Then get rid of Boynton and put in Gonchar. Stevens still might be hurt so I would put McCabe or Chara in his place.

    In the West I would get rid of Modano and put in Hejduk or Hull. I would also get rid of Kuba and Norstrom and put in Schneider and Sopel.

    Thats my take though. I think the West looks better.

  10. habs_punk says:

    ya, isnt the “rookie” game really the “young guns” game? isnt it just players under 25, not necessarily rookies?

  11. Lint07 says:

    If i’m not mistaken, the official rule states that it has to be the player first professionnal contract.

  12. cwthrash says:

    That’s why I won’t complain much about Messier. He’s there because of his career and I can respect that. It’s a good thing for the fans to see him one more time on a stage like this.

    In my mind, that is the sole reason. I don’t buy into trying to rationalize his inclusion for any other reason. He most likely would have been named if he only had two or three goals this year.

    You’re right, I’ve seen worse choices as well. Many of them this year, where both the fans and the GMs let us down.

  13. TheMinister says:

    Kuba over Ohlund?!? WTF?

  14. Gnashpred says:

    This is Timonen’s second selection to the all star game. He broke his wrist before the last one he was selected to in the team’s second season.

  15. Tradedude says:

    Another nice surprise is Vokoun…And how the heck does Roloson get in there? Sure…good stats, but come on..the Wild will blitz the hell out of you..all there games are 0-0 and your wondering if it will get any lower.

    What about Belfour is what most people are probably saying..Is 22 wins not enough? How about 423 alltime? Or the fact that the leafs have no defense and he has to do it basically on his own? OR..maybe because he’s what? 5th, 6th alltime in wins?..I understand the East has some pretty good goalies, but its hard to mess with a goaltender of his calibre..

    I dont know if this sounds biassed but I’d prefer McCabe over Boynton…I believe he has 10 goals and nearly 27 points.

    Another player not deserving it is Mattias Norstrom – I understand couple years ago he made it because it was in LA but come on!! …gheesh these fans are tools.

  16. swedishvoice says:

    The East:

    Nick Boynton, Wade Redden? Hell? Wheres Gonchar, Chara, Dick Tarnstrom or Brian Rafalski… That quartette is way better than those two players.

    Keith Primeau, Garry Roberts? When you have players like Marc Svard, Mike Ribiero, Patrik Elias, and if we are talking leadrship? I’ll take John Madden over Keith Primeau any day….

    The West:

    Where the F is Ölund and Floppa? Modano as a starter with the seson his haveing? I’d rater take Arnott…

    Althow it’s very nice to see Pavel Datsyuk and Patrick Marleau in the line up…

  17. swedishvoice says:

    I agree… I mean Modano? WTF?

  18. Bretzky says:

    Where the hell are Hejduk, Savard, McCabe, Chara, Forsberg (great PPG average like Savard, despite injuries), Yzerman, Hull, Draper (having a fantastic career year), Schneider??? HELLO? I’m not saying all of these players should have made it because most of them are Colorado or Detroit, but seriously. These guys are all-stars and having great years as usual and at least a few of the ones I just mentioned should be on this team instead of people like Boynton, Primeau(donna), Gary Roberts, Modano, Norstrom, Kuba.

    Aebischer should DEFINITELY be there over Roloson. Roloson has done nothing this year. Aebischer has stood on his head and made people forget about Roy’s retirement. And Turco obviously shouldn’t even be there but that’s already been talked about since the horribly voted starting lineup.

    Goalies for the West should’ve been Aebischer, Vokoun, and either CuJo or Osgood.

  19. The_Conductor says:

    Where the Hell is Fedorov? He is the best 2 way player in the game… and he is the leader of the Ducks…

    Hello?

  20. DohCanada says:

    The only thing I can see is that they had to put crappy players on the Eastern offence like Messier and Primeau to offset the crappier goaltending in the west. Turco, Roloson and Voukoun??? Come on! I see a snorefest coming on. Crappy teams to match the crappy sweaters!

  21. the_expert_44 says:

    24 pts isnt much, and hes -10.

    vokoun has a weak sv % of 916 or w/e that is. i understand his gaa, but that svp is pathetic for an all-star. i cant see you arguing that vokoun should be there over aebischer…

  22. the_expert_44 says:

    13 goals isnt a very big achievement. just because hes 43 doesnt make his goals worth more. obviously a disgrace of a pick.

  23. EmptyNetter says:

    Forsburg has already missed over 20 games this season due to a nagging groin injury. With Yzerman’s knee issues, he should stay healthy for the playoffs, rather than risk injury in an All-Star game — I wouldn’t be surprised if he pulled himself from being considered. Hull went 21 straight games without scoring a goal. Still a great player, but if we’re judging on performance this season I don’t think he makes the cut. Unless you’re giving him his props for career achievement — becoming 3rd all-time goal scorer.

  24. the_expert_44 says:

    add aebischer over vokoun and youve got the picks right.

  25. the_expert_44 says:

    fans dont pick the reserves. u can call the gm’s tools though

  26. EmptyNetter says:

    This may be a dumb question, but why does the East have six centers and six wingers?

  27. distance7 says:

    Well, you like to put things down, huh? Vokoun leads the league in wins, tie with Aebischer, and he plays on Nashville, he faces more shots than anyone besides Luongo and one other player. And you think Aebischer should be there over him on one of the best teams in hockey, instead of a goalie that’s MAKING his team one of the better teams this season?

  28. distance7 says:

    Yeah, I remember that. Broke his wrist in a game against Colorado.

  29. NHLman says:

    This list is an embarresment to the NHL. With all the great players I hate to see only 42 ors so players represented and especially with all the great players left out. Plus, how can you let a team go unrepresented? The NHL has terrible ratings, i’m sure leaving out teams will help the NHL’s popularity grow…

    The All-Star game process definitely needs to be changed, I’ve never really noticed it before, but these players have opened my eyes.

    I’d like to see an increased amount of players and I’d like the players to be either: A. Voted in B. In by amount of points or C. Selected to go by their teammates

    Something has got to change when so many people are outraged.

  30. OldNord says:

    The game is in Minnesota, so this choice is more for their fans.

  31. Primis says:

    Where the Hell is Fedorov? He is the best 2 way player in the game… and he is the leader of the Ducks…

    I’m going to say he probably wasn’t considered because:

    a) He really hasn’t played very well on a team where he’s It.

    b) His team also hasn’t played very well at all.

    c) There were a multitude of players more-deserving.

    — Primis.

  32. n0rea11y says:

    Not sure how you could put Primeau in and leave Francis out. Not only do you leave out one of the greatest centers to play the game but you let Carolina go unrepresented for 15 pts of Primeau. I understand if you were basing it on this years statistics but 15 points???

  33. The_Conductor says:

    a) Leads his team and is the leader of the team.

    b) True… but can you blame him… Look at this team and look at his old team!

    c) PLayers are more deserving… but he is one of the best in the NHL.

  34. LondonK says:

    A bad year. I should start off, that I am a leaf fan.

    I understand people’s comments about Roberts. I disagree to some extent that people question him being an all-star but I do agree based on the NHL’s concept of an all-star. Roberts is an all-star calibre player (he has 17 goals which is nothing to shy away from in the NHL anymore) BUT he is not an NHL all-star the way it is run. The All-Star game is sissy-fest to the enth degree. There is no hitting, there is no interference of any kind (not the penalty kind I mean the actually shutting your man down kind), there is not mad rushes to break up an odd man rush, there are no diving head on to block a shot, there is no forecheck. Those are the things that make Gary a great player. He is going to stick out like a sore thumb at the game. He is an all-star player, but not a February All-Star game player.

    Same goes for Primeau. The guy only has like 20 points, but he is an all-star player. Unfortunately he is useless in the game if he can’t be his dominant self.

    Stevens fits in that category too. The guy is famous for taking runs at players. Some are clean, and some aren’t. But that doesn’t mean that you should be playing at the all-star game.

    Taking away the physical aspect of these players games, is like taking the teeth and claws out of the tiger and then telling it to go hunt down a lion. It just wouldn’t happen. It would be like having a charity game with Wayne Gretzky but then barring him from being in his “office”.

    —————————————————-

    I really don’t have a problem with the goaltending, except for maybe Roloson. Granted he has absolutely phenominal stats, and these stats have been consistent since last year, but he has only played in half of the games. I find it hard to call a goalie an allstar when he is on pace to play like 46 games over the year.

    Well that and when you think about it man is the East outclassing the West in net. The East puts up Brodeur, Theodore, and Luongo, while the West counters with Turco, Roloson, and Vokoun.

    ————————————————————

    Now things get stupid. I won’t touch the fan voting because I think we all have heard enough about how stupid the fans are. Only uneducated fans will vote in three players from a team that is struggling to make the playoffs, especially when they aren’t even the best players at their position anyway.

    ————————————————————-

    Nick Boynton. Explain to me how a guy with 16 points and a +7 is an All-Star. I can quite easily think of three defenseman more deserving: Bryan McCabe, Zdeno Chara, and Sergei Gonchar. Going back to my post at the top. The All-Star game is about offense. So not only do you pick a guy who isn’t even in the top 40 in defensive scoring??? Yeah good job. And while you are at it you leave off the #1, the #6, or the #11 scoring D-Man. Good job NHL. Nick Boynton isn’t an all-star defenseman. He isn’t even having an all-star year. I can understand perhaps leaving Gonchar off because of his atrocious +/- but why put him in before McCabe who has pretty much the same +/- (6) plus 12 more points. Or Chara who is +13 higher than Boynton plus has 9 more points. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Then lets go to the West and they butcher the defense even more:

    Filip Kuba? Mattias Norstrom? Kimmo Timonen? Combined they only have 8 more points than Gonchar. Oh but they must have a great +/- then right? Wrong they are a whopping combined – 15 …only Norstrom is a +4 while Timonen is -10 and Kuba a -9. So basically what the NHL has managed to do is find 3 players who do the equivalent of one player.

    But its ok because they didn’t leave off someone more deserving did they. Of course not…oh wait:

    Mathieu Scheider. Unfortunately for him have 32 points (4) and being +17 (4) isn’t all-star material. My bad, I thought the point of being an all-star was being one of the best…thanks for clearing that up for me NHL.

    How about Brent Sopel. He’s only a +13 with 25 points. I guess the NHL isn’t going to let players who haven’t established themselves as a premier player into the game. He needs to get a few more good seasons in like Sheldon Souray before he can have a shot at the All-Star game…oh wait…nevermind.

    How about Adam Foote, Mattias Ohlund, Lubomir Visnovsky, Ed Jovanovski, or Paul Mara each has had at least a marginally superior season to those three but not a sniff. Good job.

    And how about Mark Messier. His stats hardly warrant being at the game as he is not that good of a player anymore, but I do understand that this is the end and that there should be some support for your past stars who are coming to a close. Why not give one to Joe Niewendyk then too though. He’s in his final season most likely and he is a great player too.

    It really is too bad that his spot took one away from Mar Savard, Mike Ribeiro, Patrick Elias, Daniel Briere, Jason Speeze, or Radek Bonk who are all having superior seasons.

  35. Bretzky says:

    First of all, it’s Forsberg, you know, the way I spelled it in my initial post. It’s funny that you can still spell that wrong when he’s the single best overall player in the NHL, and I just spelled it out for you in the post that you replied to.

    Now, Yzerman’s knees are fine. He didn’t miss that many games at all, and playing in a non-checking, non-physical all-star game isn’t exactly a risk.

    Forsberg, yes has missed over 20 games, but look at his ppg, he’s still in the top 30 in scoring in the league with guys who have played over 20 games more than him, and he’s been very very consistent in the games he has played. His story is very similar to Savard and both of them should be there, injuries or not. If they were injured for the game and couldn’t play, then we can have someone sub for them, but at the very least, they deserve the honor.

    Hull… yea he had a scoring drought recently… but he was still putting up tons of assists and he’s still in 12th place in scoring in the league! Datsyuk and Hull have been one of the most dominating duos this season and Hull definitely deserves to be there.

    Next time, get the facts straight before you attempt to disagree.

    i agree with mccabe over boynton, but who would you take off to put belfour in there???? all three of those goalies are putting up WAY better numbers than belfour, aside from wins, but i mean luongo’s playing on florida, so not much he can do there in putting up that many wins

  44. habs_punk says:

    …………..w-l-t…….gaa….pct

    belfour…21-14-5…2.27…914

    brodeur..20-13-9…1.90…921

    theodore 20-14-5…1.99…929

    luongo….13-20-9…2.45…929

    well i guess luongo’s numbers arent great aside from his save pct. but obviously toronto is a much better team than florida, with luongo’s save pct its not that much of a stretch to think that he would have much better numbers than belfour if their spots were swtiched.

    Before you question Roberts-

    They don’t just pick on skill and prettiness.

  46. wheresthesoda says:

    yea, mess has played hard all year long, not many pretty goals but what do you expect, there all amzing in my point of view. Mess on his 25th season in the nhl, the question is..

    is he retiring at the end of the year?, i hope so.

    messier said he’ll retire after the rangers make the playoffs.

    I apologize to Peter Forsberg and his family. To you, I say lighten up. I was merely offering theories about why your selections were not chosen to compete at the All-Star game. If you’re this threatened by having your opinions questioned, I’m not sure why you bother to post anything. This is, after all, an open forum.
