All-Star: Nathan MacKinnon and Cale Makar
Snub: Nazem Kadri
Kadri is a part of the last man in vote and definitely could find himself in the event, but really the guy has 48 points in 30 games this year. Mikko Rantanen also has 40 in 30 and can’t find themselves in the all-star game. If a player is truly having an all-star career year they probably should find themselves in a game like this.
All-Star: Joe Pavelski
Snub: Jason Robertson
Jason Robertson is the young future star of the Dallas Stars. At 22 years old he is second on the team in points with 32 in 27 not bad for a young player truly taking off in the league. Pavelski is having a great year and definitely is a good representation for the Stars, but the future of the team belongs to guys like Robertson and not Pavelski who are 37 and could find themselves traded.
All-Star: Kirill Kaprizov and Cam Talbot
Snub: Ryan Hartman
Okay, these last few names have all been players on the last man vote and this next one is no different. Ryan Hartman went from a third-line guy to a bonafide top-six star player on one of the top teams within the Western Conference in the Minnesota Wild. Hartman getting to an all-star game would have been a sight to see and would have shownd all his hard work over the past few years.
