The skaters first, the west. I think Mathieu Schneider from Detroit should be there instead of Kuba. Schneider is 2nd in points for defensemen.
Also I think Marek Zidlicky from Nashville should be there instead of Norstrom. Just based on stats, even though Zidlicky is a -11 and Norstrom is a
+4 on the season.
In the east I would have said Sergei Gonchar instead of Niedermayer, but it doesn't matter now, since Sergei is injured.
Definately should have had Mark Recchi instead of Roberts, Recchi is having a great year.
Messier got in just on name recognition. But his numbers are just not that great. That is a toss up.
On to the goalies.
Dan Cloutier from Vancouver got the cold shoulder. He has 22 wins and a 2.21 GAA.
David Aebischer from Colorado also did not get the nod. 23 wins and a 2.06 GAA.
In place of Roberto Luongo should have been Ed Belfour, 23 wins and a 2.20 GAA.
Shrug, just my 2 cents
