    And they can put the two highest scoring d-men in the league to fill out those units (or at least I anticipate Karlsson will be top two by this time with the run he's currently on).

    And then they have Fleury and Gibson to bail them out in net.

    Not sure about Pavelski and Keller will look though.

    wooooo! I hope he won by like 10 votes, so we can all feel proud that every single one of our votes made the difference

    It's extra special, because of the amount of salty flames (and leafs) fans, in the mains and social media

    Leon and Connor get to showcase their 3 on 3 magic with the whole NHL watching.
    Maybe people will see it isn't always just McDavid, Leon is one of the sickest passers in the league

    Possibly, but then they'd have to have one line where all three are forwards. I know some teams have that by default already, so it's possible.

    Perhaps, the logic will be to have at least one Shark player on the ice at all times.

    I'm trying to think which one we're most likely to see in All-Star game. This is assuming all 3 Sharks players play together.

    McDavid-Draisaitl-Gaudreau, McDavid-Draisaitl-Petterson(assuming he can go), McDavid-Draisaitl-Doughty or McDavid-Draisaitl-Keller

    I would love either Petterson or Doughty,

    I understand the salt, but it should moreso be directed as Pavelski over Monahan or Karlsson/Doughty over Giordano (but Karlsson's closed the gap since the team was picked). Positionally, Draisaitl over Giordano only makes sense and non-team fans probably have seen the magic Dria and McDavid produce 3 on 3 which likely helped Draisaitl for votes.

    And, lets be honestly, Germany v. Calgary, Germany is going to win that battle.

    It's incredibly dumb. You know the best way to please the home fans? Win. The best trios for the Pacific IMO are

    McDavid-Drai
    Karlsson

    Pavelski-Pettersson
    Burns

    Keller-Gaudreau
    Doughty

    The best trio would require Pavelski to stay home and someone else replace him, guy is slow as a snail and many better optiona
