    I think it has to be Mantha, guy is on pace to score nearly 50

    I said AA for one reason only. Nobody on the Wings is going to "deserve" a spot at the ASG; since the NHL has gone to the "everyone gets a participation trophy" model, might as well send someone exciting.

    There probably won't be enough forward spots anyway, so Bernier it is.

    He's not that exciting, especially when he has gone 12 games without scoring a goal and is on pace to be the lowest +/- in the history of the NHL.

    I agree with Mantha, or anyone from the wings top line although I think the all-star game gets a little watered down with the all teams approach now, not that I really care about the all star game honestly.

    I think if you look for the Easts top 4 centers it's hard to justify Larkin in there, but the East's top 8 wingers Mantha is a better argument if a red wing is mandatory.

    The fans are the real all-star this season for making it through full games as spectators.

    Great idea, let's just pick a random season ticket holder and put him/her on the ice to play. That would be pretty epic, our version of John Scott.

    What's exciting about not scoring, losing puck battles, and failing to beat 4 men?

    Rielly, Dahlin, Hedman, Weber, Chabot, Krug, Ekblad ...which 5 aren't going over Hronek?
    Rask, Hutton, Price, Halak, Andersen, Vasilevskiy ...which 5 aren't going over Howard?

    Marchand, Bergeron, Pastrnak, Eichel, Huberdeau, Barkov, Matthews, Marner, Tavares, Stamkos, Kucherov, Point. Add in players like Skinner, Drouin, Domi, Tkachuk.

    You have Mantha and Larkin (maybe Bertuzzi, but I am electing to leave him out). You can keep 6 forwards, and have a list of 18 names. Sure, Larkin or Mantha will be in the discussion, but the star power at the forward position is ridiculous.

    As for your list of defenseman, Ekblad doesn't go. Krug doesn't go. Weber doesn't go. I think Chabot is a lock. I need two more defensemen. Any of Dahlin, Rielly, and Hedman could be odd men out because of the forwards on their team.

    My guess is Hronek, based on the depth of forwards in our division.

    What about Bernier? The ASG is all about giving the fans lots of goals.

    If I have to explain why watching an extremely dynamic, albeit enigmatic, player in a meaningless skills competition is exciting, there's nothing left to say.

    Larkin or Mantha. Howard probably gets in just because

    The All-Star game is for kids and parents. They want to see star players and dream team combos. Larkin is the only one I can see the little ones being excited about. Howard still has some name recognition. And Mantha would be fine, perhaps.

    Anyone from our blue line will result in a bunch of 8-year-olds going, "Who?"

    That way he will at least one thing that looks positive when he negotiate's his RFA contract.

    Why would the Wings want that? Also, why should they do him that favor when Mantha right now is by far the most deserving?

    That's pretty realistic. Boston, Tampa Bay, and Florida have some fantastic forwards to send. Montreal can send Price. There's a good opportunity for Detroit to send Hronek.

    Nobody.

    No one on this team is currently among the top 10 of their respective position in the NHL.
