2011 All-Star Roster

11 Jan

The complete All-Star Game roster has been selected and let me tell you – HALF of my fantasy hockey team is on here.  No wonder I’m killing it!

Ward and EStaal - Hometown Favorites

There are tons of first-time All-Stars (21), though it kind of makes me wonder how some of these guys weren’t All-Stars last year. Steven Stamkos split the Richard Trophy with Crosby, but he wasn’t an All-Star.  Mike Green was a Norris Trophy nominee and first team all-season All-Star in ’08 (both feats he would repeat last year) and he wasn’t an All-Star.

"Squishy, we made the team!"

Here’s the full list.  Highlighted guys are on my fantasy team, so Crosby will know who to draft to make my ultimate All-Star Team. [Photo Roster]

FORWARDS
David Backes (St. Louis), Sidney Crosby (Pittsburgh)*, Matt Duchene (Colorado), Patrik Elias (New Jersey), Loui Eriksson (Dallas), Claude Giroux (Philadelphia), Ales Hemsky (Edmonton), Jarome Iginla (Calgary), Patrick Kane (Chicago), Ryan Kesler (Vancouver), Phil Kessel (Toronto), Anze Kopitar (Los Angeles), Evgeni Malkin (Pittsburgh)*, Rick Nash (Columbus), Alex Ovechkin (Washington), Corey Perry (Anaheim), Brad Richards (Dallas), Daniel Sedin (Vancouver), Henrik Sedin (Vancouver), Patrick Sharp (Chicago), Martin St. Louis (Tampa Bay), Eric Staal (Carolina), Steven Stamkos (Tampa Bay), Jonathan Toews (Chicago)*

If Jordan hadn't been hurt, it would be Staal City.

DEFENSEMEN
Dan Boyle (San Jose), Brent Burns (Minnesota), Dustin Byfuglien (Atlanta), Zdeno Chara (Boston), Tobias Enstrom (Atlanta), Mike Green (Washington), Erik Karlsson (Ottawa), Duncan Keith (Chicago)*, Kris Letang (Pittsburgh)*, Nicklas Lidstrom (Detroit), Marc Staal (N.Y. Rangers), Shea Weber (Nashville)

Sharp, Keith, Toews and Kane... what's Kane looking at? Squirrel!

GOALIES
Marc-Andre Fleury (Pittsburgh)*, Jonas Hiller (Anaheim), Henrik Lundqvist (N.Y. Rangers), Carey Price (Montreal), Tim Thomas (Boston), Cam Ward (Carolina)

NYRFan Steph can wear her Lunqvist jersey in Greece that weekend.

ROOKIES
Logan Couture (San Jose), Evgeny Dadonov (Florida), Jordan Eberle (Edmonton), Oliver Ekman-Larsson (Phoenix), Tyler Ennis (Buffalo), Cam Fowler (Anaheim), Michael Grabner (N.Y. Islanders), Taylor Hall (Edmonton), Tyler Seguin (Boston), Kevin Shattenkirk (Colorado), Jeff Skinner (Carolina), Derek Stepan (N.Y. Rangers)

I've been to 4 Sharks games this year, think Couture had a goal in every one.

So that’s it till the All-Star Game draft on Friday, Jan 28.  It will air on Versus.  Who do you think will be the captains?  Who was left off this ASG roster? Someone’s gotta be fired up – only one Red Wing?  Only one Flyer? Last I checked (2 seconds ago), they were #2 and #3 in overall points in the NHL standings…

UPDATE: Here are the 2011 All-Star Game Jerseys.  I rather like the blue one… hope Tanger ends up on that team.

Prom dresses.

    I smiled a big cheesy grin when i read the roster…good selection…and as you well know some of my favorites…even in the Rookie skills competition (go Stepan). And yes – the Toews shirt and the Lundquvist jersey (in no particular order)..just may get some play in Greece….woot!

    Gary Lairman is a lying sack a stinking -rat pooh! I was watching the LA kings last night, yes, as we’ve all discussed, I was the only person in the universe doing so which is probably WHY he thought he could say, and I quote, “Yes, the LA KING will be WELL REPRESENTED in the ALL STAR GAME.” wa.. wa w.. WHAT?” one person? Anze … ok, he is their best player but what about, yes I am going there, Drew, touched by God, Doughty? surely there was room for him? wah… wah … wha …. whine whine whine! ;( sad panda face! other than that, not enough Caps for me. but you can’t have everything can you.

      Oh and no Miika for goalie? SHAME SHAME SHAME. Just cause Calgary has no defense and has been sucking until they cut the dead weight up above, sorry other brother Daryl, he shouldn’t be punished, yet again! Poor guy, he’ll be this generation’s Rogie Vachon. Yes, I went there! Legends Night – Saturday! Post coming!
