The NHL will announce the 2012 NHL All Stars at some point today, an announcement that will certainly spark discussion, anger for some, and excitement for others.
In addition to those six, 36 more players will be added to the all-star rosters, then the 42 will be split up between two teams selected by captains.
So, I ask you, who would make up your 36 players for the game? Which rookies do you want to see? Who should be the captains? Discuss, and stay tuned for the news on who makes the game!
