Like any other sport, every NHL All-Star Game has undeserving participants.
Usually, they are players making it on reputation. In the NHL, they might be those who play for the host team.
But just because a starter is aging or a member of the host team does not mean they are unworthy...
And nothing is worse than someone telling you a player does not belong and being unable to provide a compelling alternative.
Thus, I will go through the three forwards, two defencemen and one goalie most likely to represent their conferences in the All-Star Game while examining which belong and which do not.
