First Quarter NHL All Stars

2011 NHL All Stars Game PicksThe first month of the Breeders Cup betting NHL season is almost over, and already several players are making early runs at an All Star spot. For the second year in a row, the NHL will be using the bush league approach of having the players pick the teams, with one unfortunate player being picked last and embarrassed on national television. However, for most price per head service users, it is believed that if Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel is picked last again, it won’t be that big of a deal. With the NHL All Star Draft still four months away, here is a look at a few possible line combinations.

Western Conference Team:

Goalies – The Western Conference has historically been a tougher conference then the East both in terms of skill level and grit. With that being the case, in order to award a goalie the All Star position, the votes are based more on who has worked the hardest, instead of a simple popularity contest.

With that being the case, bookie software enthusiasts should have a difficult time deciding between LA Kings goalie John Quick and Dallas Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen. Both goalies have stood on their heads this month, with Quick recording three consecutive shutouts, while Lehtonen leads the league in wins. Theoretically, both goalies should make the team.

Defense – When it comes to the Western Conference, almost all of the 15 teams to make up the NFL pick conference has at least one Norris Trophy candidate. Here is a look at the defense as of October if the All Star game were tomorrow.

Sami Salo Vancouver Canucks paired with Jack Johnson of the LA Kings would be our top pairing, as both have contributed to their teams success the most. The second pairing would be Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks and Erik Johnson of the Colorado Avalanche. The third pairing would be Grant Clitsome of Columbus and Shea Weber of Nashville.

Forwards – The Western Conference has some of the most highly skilled forwards in the entire NHL; here are three that would start the game. Daniel Sedin Vancouver Canucks, Anze Kopitar LA Kings, and Patrick Sharp Chicago Blackhawks.

Eastern Conference Team:

Goalies – Tomas Vokun of Washington and Ryan Miller of Buffalo have each appeared as men on missions this season. Vokun and the Capitals are undefeated, while Miller and the Sabres are adjusting the chemistry.

Defense – The defense for the East should be some of the best players in the game right now. Look for Dion Phaneuf of Toronto, Kris Letang of Pittsburgh, Dennis Wideman of Washington, Tobias Enstrom of Winnipeg to be the top four defensemen for the All Stars.

Forwards – The forward trio for the Eastern Conference is a coaching staff’s dream starting trio, as each player can put up huge numbers. Thomas Vanek of Buffalo, Phil Kessel of Toronto would each be the wingers for center Jason Spezza of Ottawa.
