    Hmm, not exactly pleased with the final line ups. But I am very happy that guys like Pronger didn't make it on either. Though with the coaches decisions yet to come who knows how it'll end up. Rory was so close! There's always next All-Star line up.

    I'm not thrilled either, ca.
    Actually, there's only a couple of picks I'm not pleased with.
    Cheecho over Iginla?
    Briere over Jagr?
    Come on people!!

    So, any guesses as to who the coaches will select?

    Rory can still be added to the all-star game lineup this year.

    That's very true Cornedbeef. Hopefully the coaches will pick wisely.
    I've been wondering fluff how exactly people voted. Based on favourites, based on talent, or something else alltogether. Some of the people's picks, like Pronger getting 4th, really makes you wonder when so many people claim to dislike the man. How the heck did he do so well?

    Wow, I still don't know who was voting for Marco Sturm and those were write-in votes. I like the guy, but he hasn't exactly been lighting it up (20 points in 36 games). Now Marc Savard, on the other hand, has been great (52 points in 40 games).

    I'm surprised Cheechoo made it. I guess that was based on last season.

    I also would prefer Brodeur over Miller.

    I imagine it's a combination of all the criteria you stated.
    Pronger being so high in the rankings did surprise me, but the Anaheim fans might have voted in force and they have no reason to do anything other than love him for his performance for them this season.

    I think Brodeur should have made it over Miller, but when fans vote you never know what will happen.
    Brodeur will most likely be picked by Ruff.

    I believe the full squads will be announced on Saturday and the general unwriten rule is there is one representative from each club on the squad.
    Although Luongo is the starter for the west, I expect Turco to get picked to the squad, particularly considering the game is in Dallas this year.

    I say it's mostly people voting for favorites. This is what happens when you let fans have unlimited votes, which is why I was hoping Rory would be voted in.

    I think Cheechoo would've made the team even if he wasn't voted a starter. The West doesn't have many All-Star worthy forwards, and Cheech proved he has the talent. The selections should be based on current stats, but I think past performance will be considered this time since there wasn't an All-Star game last season. Too bad the West is loaded with great d-men, Timonen probably won't make the team.

    Funny how it's the exact opposite in the East. It'll be tough picking forwards, a lot of guys deserve it.

    You beat me too it, Ru

    I too was very pleased to see Blake getting some recognition.
    I guess Trotz being on the coaching squad helped ensure Timonen got fair consideration.
    I really enjoy watching Nashville play and was hoping they would get more than one player on the squad.


    ETA. I just noticed, Justin Williams?
    I did read that Jagr wasn't interested in going, that is surely the only explanation for why he isn't on the roster.
