Three Blue Jackets somehow land All-Star nominations

In a shocking move, the National Hockey League announced that forwards Rick Nash, R. J. Umberger and Jeff Carter would be placed on the 2012 NHL All-Star Game ballot.

Combined, the trio has 5 goals, 14 assists and 19 points through 14 games.  By comparison:
  • Phil Kessel of the Toronto Maple Leafs has 11 goals, 11 assists and 22 points through 15 games.
  • Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers has 9 goals, 10 assists and 19 points through 15 games.
  • Nicklas Backstrom of the Washington Capitals has 5 goals, 14 assists and 19 points over 15 games.  


  1. The rules mandate that at least one player from each team needs to make the all star team. Surprised that Umberger is on that list over Prospal.

  2. That explains one nomination, Coach.

  3. None of them, especially Umberger, deserve it.

    Umberger signed his big contract and mentally checked out.

  4. No Clitsome? Dummies.
