The NHL All Star game selection process is extremely flawed to say the least.
Players who deserve to be there don’t get the chance and players who don’t deserve to be there are mysteriously included. Doug Weight? Keith Tkachuk? *cough* *cough*
Players having break out seasons this year are also neglected.
As far as the Canadiens go much has been said about the ‘snub’ to Cristobal Huet whose numbers this year and last year are among the best in the league.
If you want to vote for Cristobal Huet you may do so here.
Look at the bottom for “To nominate a player not on the ballot, select one from each list:”
Huet’s Save % is 1st in the league.
GAA is 2nd in the league.
The numbers speak for themselves.
Huet is on a 5 game win streak and will get the call tonight against the Panthers who embarrassed the Habs earlier this year with a 5-1 win.
There is a lot of buzz surrounding the Canadiens after their victory over the Sabres. People around the league are taking notice. But one game and one victory doesn’t mean all that much.
It’s teams like Florida and Philly that need to be guaranteed wins to really keep the Habs among the League best.
