    Let's try and be realistic here, but which players should be all stars on your team that maybe don't get enough attention?

    From the Caps Backstrom is my candidate - an unsung hero of the league, definitely deserves to get the nod. A healthy Mike Green is a slightly more questionable name to put forward, but when he's playing his game he's a possession monster and there aren't many people around who can QB a powerplay better.

    So who are the people from your team that fit the bill but won't get the votes? Let's make it slightly interesting and not talk about the Crosby's etc who are a shoe in for the game.

    Justin Faulk is probably the only one with a case to make it.

    Maybe Kronwall would deserve to be in an all-star game after all these years. He's borderline.

    Since the CBJ are hosting I would hope we get three invites...

    1. Johansen
    2. Bobrovsky
    3. Jenner / Hartnell / Foligno (pick one)

    Not saying all are deserving, but by the all star break they will all be having pretty good years.

    Getzlaf, Perry, Andersen, Fowler, Lindholm and Vatanen should all get some consideration, the first two should be locks.

    I really wish they would get rid of fan voting. One player per team, and the rest are decided by some sort of committee.

    For the Leafs, I'd say Kessel and maybe Bernier, but I wouldn't be upset if it was only Kessel.

    Weber, Rinne, and Forsberg.....although I assume he won't make it.

    Ribeiro is quietly having a really productive season, with 24 points in 27 games with a +14 rating.

    Hedman and Johnson. (Stralman has been great, but doesn't have the flash of an All-Star).

    Kessel is the only Leaf lock. JVR (tho he's been super inconsistent) and Benier should get consideration. Franson a longshot but if he keeps up his current scoring pace he might well be a darkhorse. So to summarize Kessel and a bunch of maybes..
