Ok I have a lot to say...

So here we go...I just wanted to have the complete "all star" roster on here....cuz I said I would and I would talk about it.

Eastern Conference:

Martin Brodeur New Jersey
Cristobal Huet Montreal

Jay Bouwmeester Florida
Zdeno Chara Boston
Tomas Kaberle Toronto
Brian Rafalski New Jersey

Jason Blake New York Islanders
Simon Gagne Philadelphia
Dany Heatley Ottawa
Marian Hossa Atlanta
Vincent Lecavalier Tampa Bay
Martin St. Louis Tampa Bay
Brendan Shanahan New York Rangers
Eric Staal Carolina
Justin Williams Carolina

I feel alright about the Eastern Conference fillers....I love Brodeur like I said yesterday...and Huet is decent. On Defense it looks good to me. I love the fact that Jason Blake and Sidney Crosby will be on the same team....hahaha...I hate Crosby so much. Now notice I didn't say I didn't think that Sidney Crosby was a bad player but I think that the NHL has promoted him to the point that he is just annoying now. I absolutely LOVE Alexander Ovechkin...and am so happy that he now has his own commercial so I can stop looking at Crosby.

Now for the Western Conference fillers:

Miikka Kiprusoff Calgary
Marty Turco Dallas

Philippe Boucher Dallas
Dion Phaneuf Calgary
Kimmo Timonen Nashville
Lubomir Visnovsky Los Angeles

Bill Guerin St. Louis
Martin Havlat Chicago
Patrick Marleau San Jose
RICK NASH Columbus
Yanic Perreault Phoenix
Brian Rolston Minnesota
Teemu Selanne Anaheim
Ryan Smyth Edmonton
Henrik Zetterberg Detroit

Now...I absolutely love this Western Conference line up...I guess I'm a little bias. I love Dion Phaneuf....and I am so excited that Rick Nash is going to be in the game. He deserves it. He is doing so much better now that Hitch has taken over and has become a more complete player...in fact there was an article about it...let me find it...Check it out! I thought it was amazing. Anyway I'm glad that Teemu Selanne is in there and agree with everyone else that it's stupid that Cheech is in over him. Anyway the "All Star" is next week. I don't plan on watching...not too interested.

Here's a little rant about my Blue Jackets...the boys are starting to come back...last night in our win over Chicago we had Foote back and Fedorov and I believe Svitov was back as well. Mr. Nash is expected to return on Thursday for our game against Nashville. And then on Friday we are taking on the Red Wings at home...I cant bring myself to watch these games...I don't know who to cheer for...makes me sad.

Also, I do want to give a bit of a shout out to some of my favorite podcasts...one is The Habs Cast...who have a link on my side...and the other one is The Crazy Canucks...these two podcasts are in my opinion the best one's out there. I love listening to them I don't get bored...and I love hearing them talk about their teams. You can subscribe to them on iTunes.

Ok...now for my little section about the Ducks...anyone who knows me...knows I love the Ducks...it's just one of those things...however...for some reason when they are at home...and playing some of the worst teams in the NHL...they tend to lose...and not just lose...but lose is some crazy unheard of way....earlier this season...on November 15...they lost to the Flyers 7-4....that is the worst team in the NHL. Then on January 4th...they lost to my beloved Blue Jackets...4-3....this may not seem like a big difference but all of the Jackets goals were in the last 10 minutes of the 3rd period...then last night...they lost 6-2....to the St. Louis Blues...totally killing me. I don't know what's going on with the Ducks...you'd think they would have enough depth on their team to still be winning without Pronger...but apparently not...but they need to seriously step it up.

Anyway, I suppose that is enough for the night...let me know what you think Crosby or Ovechkin??

Bethany, you sure know a lot about hockey. You should be a hockey sports analyst or something.
