    Lots of great talent but not enough room for everyone especially since every team needs a representative. Congrats to the last 4 who got voted in. They have all had great seasons so far.

    Tanger has been awesome on both ends. He deserves in. Honestly, he deserves Norris talk.

    What?? Your saying that Oiler fans are better than Flames fans isn't chirping?

    As to the number of times Flames fans voted, I honestly can't say (although a number of them have said they didn't vote at all because they wanted to give Gio the 9 days off to rest). I was in that group too. Didn't vote. I might have voted if Gio was 25 instead of 35. I think Gio will appreciate the rest more than the 4 day trip to Anaheim.

    Don't want to sue you. I'm glad Drai was voted in. One little bright spot in a rather dismal season so far for the Oilers. I look forward to the Flames playing the Oilers post season although to be honest I really don't think your team will make it and after reading comments on your own board it looks like most Oiler fans agree with me.

    So in lieu of that, I look forward to the next BoA game on Jan 19 in Edmonton.

    That's just it. Ultimately there were numerous players that didn't get in that could've and probably should've. Every team gets a player there or else we might see the east with a very heavy contingent of Leafs, Bolts, Pitt, Washington and Boston contingent and not much else.

    Must be a testament to the Oilers superior fan base and Edmonton’s population being greater than Calgary.

    Don’t forget about the Oilers world class offensive-minded defencemen and strong winger corps!

    Of course I was chirping when I read crap like what I initially responded to.

    Then why worry about it and post in this thread (directed at those that complain and then say they don't want him there anyway)? We have a guy just entering his prime vs. an older player that keeps getting better with age. Truth be told both could use the rest because of what they mean to their teams and the minutes that they play. Gio is one of the Flames that I respect fwiw.

    Too early to say, the odds aren't in our favor but Klefbom's return could be huge for us and there have been some signs of life from guys like Lucic and Puljujarvi the last few games so we'll see.

    I was worried it would be Backstrom, happy it is Letang instead.

    You think that Connor would rather play with Rattie and Lucic?

    I think he would rather play with this lineup:

    McDavid-Lucic

    Manning

    I didnt read the pages and pages of back and forth, but are you really arguing Gaudreau and Monahan are better then McDavid? I guess I can see your point in using stats against Draisatl, but including McDavid is kind of silly.

    No one on the planet should think either of those players are in McDavids universe. 80 minutes of 3 on 3 time be damned. It's more a lesson in the faulty nature of taking small samples, then it is proving your point.

    I'll take how to neutralize a generational talent for $500 Alex.

    To be honest I think the All Star Game weekend is just a stupid event and I rather the league stop holding it and use those 6 days to fix some of the ridiculous game scheduling because of this and the week off that the league has to give to every team. Way too many 3 games in 4 days throughout the season IMO. Since the league has to invite a minimum of 1 player from each team to this event and the final 4 players are voted in by virtue of a popularity contest and which ever fan base can rally more supporters than the other fan bases... its really a fairly meaningless accolade.
    The ASG is strictly a marketing event by the league owners in order to make more money and increase exposure in the USA. Its a big flashy event meant to attract non traditional fans. Nobody remembers who played from year to year (unless its someone like John Scott) and nobody remembers who wins these meaningless games.

    If it was simply a popularity contest then why didn't Rielly get in? Toronto has the biggest fanbase in the league. I agree that the hockey itself sucks, glorified shinny.

    To be honest, I really don't know or understand why Rielly didn't get an invite.
    One of the great mysteries of life I guess... like the Bermuda Triangle, do UFOs exist, and how Michael Jordan is able to fly to through the air.

    I’m being serious when I ask this..
    What does “cOilers” refer to? I’ve never understood it.

    Ah yes... you have to be of a certain age group to remember those. I remember. I used to have a set... and then as I got older I graduated to a Meccano set. None of this wussy Lego stuff. We used tools.

    It's not like Leon is playing bad, he's on pace for 100 points and has more points than Pastranak, Ovechkin, Crosby, and Tavares. A guy like Clayton Keller doesn't deserve to go.

    Marner, Point, Giordano, Reilly should be there, the 1 player per team format is stupid.

    An awful lot of complaining for a bunch of posters who claim to not care about a silly game
