Uh couple of questions anthony. If we are supposed to have 4 D men there are only 3 listed here while the canadian side has 12 options listed. Im sure we have more eligible american D men than only 3. We obviously need at least one more option

good lineups, looks like the year the Canadian Conference walks away the victor haha so much talent in our conference it’s unreal.

Also on a home team note it’s nice to see an All-Star at every position, even though some people might argue Joffrey Lupul isn’t one… and to those people I say shut the fuck up yeah he is!
Seriously always a fun weekend, Im looking forward to the NHL All-Star draft this year Chara and Alfie make some good captains.

GM Brunetta and I have been enjoying forming a potent attack. The American Conference sure are lucky that our top rookie and two strong top six have been removed from competition!

ah ok anthony. Yeah I mean Dan Girardi lol I love the guy as a Rangers fan but seriously. Ok well Hartnell has been included now also so we have him as an option. Daryn and I already picked the team. Yeah true Jordan lots of talent in your conference which makes the victory even sweeter. Best of luck to ya but not to much, US is as always is kick ass and with GM Nellany behind the bench and beckman as the asisstant we plan to get the most out of our boys. Afer we get the lead we will implore the left wing lock with a 1 2 2 attack and with the King in net it gets even more daunting. Best of luck scrubs…USA USA USA
