Staal Named to All Star Game Again

The NHL just announced the East's roster for the All Star game to be played in Montreal later this month and once again Eric Staal will represent the Carolina Hurricanes. Of course, the franchise player for the Canes was the MVP of the game last year and used the experience as a building block for a tremendous second half of the season.

The starting lineups were previously voted on by the fans and include Pittsburgh's Malkin and Crosby, as well as Montreal's Price, Kovalev, Markov, and Komisarek. (Way to go Habs fans).

The rest of the lineup for the East will include, Ovechkin, Staal, Lecavalier, Vanek, Savard, Parise, Heatley, Kovalchuk, and Carter. Not too shabby of a group.

The previously mentioned Canadiens defensemen will be joined by Bouwmeester, Chara, Streit, and Tomas Kaberle. Carey Price will share netminding duties with Tim Thomas and Henrik Lundqvist.

We will have much more about the All Star Classic later, (and the absurdity of the fan voting). Congratulations to Staal.
