The Eastern all-stars
The NHL released the full rosters for the Eastern Conference today at noon.
The team looks reasonably close to the one I put together Wednesday, with a few tweaks to try and fit in a player from every team.
Players missing: Tim Thomas, Henrik Lundqvist, Paul Martin, Tobias Enstrom, Mats Sundin, Alex Kovalev
Players on team: Tomas Vokoun, Rick DiPietro, Tomas Kaberle, Kimmo Timonen, Marian Hossa, Eric Staal
Sundin and Kovalev are pretty glaring omissions if you ask me: Both have more goals, more points and a better plus-minus than Hossa and Staal.
I've got no problem with the changes in goal; it's basically a coin flip between those four and Vokoun's had a great season in Florida.
