Hey now, you’re an All-Star.

4 Jan

Remember way back on November 15 when I posted my NHL All-Star Game starting lineup?  Well 4 out of my 6 were just named All-Stars by the general fan voting!  Once again, I control the Universe.

3 for 3!

Sorry Mike. ;(

Mikey was not on the list, but I’ll take Duncan Keith FTW! Also, Flower makes me a little, uh… nervous.  But he’s in fine form this season and was selected as the #1 overall goalie vote-getter.  Yay Flower!

In like Flynn.

So the NHL Hockey Operations Dept will choose the rest of the ASG pool, then the players will select their own captains: 2 captains, 4 alt captains.  They’ll take the stage in an ASG Draft on Fri, Jan 28 and the 3 captains for each team will draft their squads.  Each team will have to pick 3 goalies (by the 10th round) and the defensemen must be picked by the 15th round.

Reaction videos already up for Tazer [video] and Keith [video].

Awww shucks.

I am really excited now.  The first batch is just a popularity contest, so there are tons of great players to be added.  Still 4 out of 6 are Pens and they didn’t even win the Cup?  Boo-yah.
