Found January 12, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
The NHL announced their All Star Game lineups today.  They can be found here.  Earlier I posted my picks for the game.  The biggest difference between my picks and the NHL picks is that I have at least one player per team involved in the game.  The NHL has 12 rookies who will take part in the skills competition only and some of these rookies are the lone representatives for their respective teams.  Five teams will have no All Star Game representation.  They are Carolina, Colorado, Columbus, Edmonton and New Jersey.  This frees five roster spots on my team that I had given to Jeff Skinner, Ryan O’Reilly, Fedor Tyutin, Ryan Smyth and Patrik Elias.  The only representation for their respective teams are rookies Justin Faulk, Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan Johansen, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and both Adam Henrique and Adam Larsson of New Jersey.  These teams are short changed in the All Star Game.  Edmonton is shortchanged the most as it is doubtful that Nugent-Hopkins will be healthy by gametime....
