Named to captain Team Pacific in the ASG.

Congrats Connor.

Connor is the only Oiler going to the ASG - cases could be made for Talbot and, definitely, Drai, but, frankly, I'm not sure how their numbers compare to the other players chosen and I would prefer them to get the rest in any event:

PACIFIC DIVISION

Jeff Carter
Johnny Gaudreau
Bo Horvat
Ryan Kesler
Joe Pavelski

Defensemen

Brent Burns
Drew Doughty
Cam Fowler

Goaltenders

Martin Jones
Mike Smith

You could definitely make a case for Drai over Kesler for sure. Ducks have Fowler going, so it's not a case of he's the only Ducks rep. Talbot over Smith is another, but Smith is only Coyote going.

If there were two guys I wanted to get a rest more than anyone else it would be 1) Talbot and 2) Drai.

I'm totally cool with this.

They've got a mandatory 5 day break coming up anyway. If they were named all stars, they would still get some rest soon.

That's true - I'm still fine with them not going and would prefer them to just relax.

How is Draisaitl left off?

Taylor Hall made the All Star team? 25 points. LOL. Devils players must really be struggling if Hall is their representative

Drai probably deserves to go but I'm cool with him resting.

More to do with trying to get Hall on their side.

I am already 110% sure hall won't re-sign in Jersey when the time comes .

I fully agree with you.

I'd say its a zero percent chance he re-signs with NJ.

What's he got left on his deal?

Oh...That's a lot more than I thought.

Thanks.

And Holy Crap... I haven't looked at the stats or standings this year until now.

Does Lucic really have 11 points?

That's brutal...I thought he would be WAY better!

Maroon is your man...

Talbot got absolutely SHAFTED with his All-Star snub.

Smith's boxcars don't match-up to Cam's at all...

Whomever it was who made that pick is a F'n imbecile, & needs to be shown the door.

Rest, or no rest, he still has earned the right to be there...

Geez...What in the hell was I reading?

I must have totally misread... Apologies.

It didn't seem right.

Yes, Talbot likely deserves the nod over Smith but there aren't any other Yotes on the team - therefore, Smith gets picked.

I'm sure Cam is just fine getting a few days off - no contract bonus for all-star appointment.

Maybe that was even strength points? He's been unproductive at even strength this year.

That was the OTHER mistake... Fowler should NOT be there over O.E.L. ~ The Fowl already had a player named to the squad.

That solves the Desert Dog issue right there...

Every year players get snubbed, but this 1 should not have even been close.  Shocked
