Anybody else think Salo should be on the all-star ballot?

Postby yammi » Fri Nov 10, 2006 4:45 pm

The Swedes and Luongo rightly deserve to be on this season's all-star ballot, but what about Sami?

I think if he stays healthy, he may be one of the top 5 D in the western conference by the break.

Seems like ignorance regarding players out here in the Pacific Northwest on the part of the folks in the east responsible for putting the list of candidates together (although it may be a blessing in disguise for him to go unrecognized because it may mean he's be slightly cheaper come negotiation time).

I think he deservest to be there, but at the same time I am glad that he isn't.
The less fanfare and publicity and hype for Salo, the less value he has come this summer when it is time to resign him.

If Salo keeps playing like the way he's playing (and stays healthy obviously), then I'd agree.

The Sedin twins and Luongo deserve to be on the ballot as well...although they haven't looked as brilliant as of late. Not sure about Naslund and Ohlund though (but what the hell, I'll say yes :P )

No. Nein. No f'n way. Never.

Salo doesn't require any extracurricular activities. He doesn't need the distraction either.

Keep Sami home, and keep his low profile.

I dunno, wouldn't want him to pull a groin or wreck his back in such a physical battle.

Just one more opprotunity for him to get injured

Or even worse, dislocating his shoulder while tying up his skates. :P

Does he deserve to be there? Absolutely. Do I want him there? no.

I don't want him to go either. Nor Luongo. I hope they don't have any Canuck's players at the All-Star Game.

If Salo played for Detroit, (and if there was an All-Star Game), he'd have been there last year too. That's the way it goes with the NHL All-Star game... always has, always will.
