The other day, we listed the All-Star team for the Eastern Conference (if an All-Star Game were to be played this year). Now, we shift our attention to the Western Conference and examine what that All-Star team would look like if the lockout didn't force the cancellation of the annual midseason exhibition.
Again, a few rules when picking this team:
I am picking 21 players per conference: 12 forwards, six defensemen and three goalies.
Like a real roster for an All-Star Game, each team in the conference needs to be represented by at least one player.
With that in mind, here is my Western Conference All-Star team.
Feel free to comment on players you feel deserve to be on this roster whom I omitted. Keep in mind, however, that if you add a player, you have to take another player off, and you still need to keep at least one player from each team on your roster. So tell me who you would take off and not just who you would add on.
