Blackhawks soar into All-Star Game as NHL’s go-to glamour team – Yahoo Sports

After a 49-year drought, Chicago has won two Stanley Cups in the past five seasons. (USA Today)

He joins some elite goal-scoring company: Wayne Gretzky, Campbell, 1983; Mario Lemieux, Wales, 1990; Vincent Damphousse, Campbell, 1991; Mike Gartner, Wales, 1993, and Dany Heatley, East, 2003. After two days of goofy fun at the NHL Fantasy Draft and the skills competition, the Sunday was a bit of a snoozer. The goals were plentiful, the skating was casual and the crowd only popped for the hometown heroes. So basically it was the NHL All-Star Game. The first period saw a combined eight goals, four by each team. Ryan Johansen (Foligno) had two of them, while Roberto Luongo (Toews) made a few quality glove saves. Radim Vrbata (Foligno) opened the scoring at 3:09 of the first period with his first all-star goal. The second period featured 11 goals, an All-Star Game record and a metric ton of sarcasm. Team Foligno goalie Marc-Andre Fleury of the Pittsburgh Penguins tied an ignominious record in giving up seven goals in a period. That tied Mike Vernons 1990 record for the Campbell Conference. The partisan Columbus crowd, which considers the Penguins arch rivals, began mockingly cheering his routine saves. Team Toews received goals from Ryan Suter, Tyler Seguin, Rick Nash, Filip Forsberg, two from Tavares and one from Jakub Voracek. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-all-star-game-scoring-record-set-in-columbus-with-29-goals-011226205.html

NHL: Blackhawks’ Carcillo suspended six games – Daily Republican Register: Daily Republican Register

But at the same time, its not like its a big surprise to us with our fan base. Its really amazing who didnt get voted in, too. They have so many guys that get lost in the shuffle, said St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk. You think of Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp and all these guys who have a tremendous amount of skill and could easily be here in their place. The NHLs hockey operations department picked the captains for the All-Star Game. It picked Toews for much the same reason the league picked the Blackhawks to host a Stadium Series game at Soldier Field last season, visit the Washington Capitals in the Winter Classic this season and visit Minnesota in the Stadium Series next season. Star power. TV ratings. Merchandise sales. Toews enjoys center stage more than he used to. Everyone kind of had the Captain Serious name for him for a long time, Kane said. Hes definitely not that anymore. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-soar-into-all-star-game-as-nhl-s-go-to-glamour-team-231754648-nhl.html

Team Toews sent Phil Kessel to the opposite side in exchange for Tyler Seguin. The captain then poked fun at recent talk about the Toronto Maple Leafs star being uncoachable, as noted by Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com: Zing ! Toews says Kessel is “one of the more coachable players out there.” Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) January 24, 2015 Ultimately, when the dust settled after the draft, the teams were pretty evenly matched. Team Toews may hold a slight edge up front, but it’s offset by marginally strong defense and goaltending on Team Foligno. Of course, there won’t be a ton of defensive effort on game day. At least not until the third period. Ken Campbell of The Hockey News broke down the numbers following the selections. He found Toews’ side was more accomplished with 11 Olympic golds and 10 Stanley Cups. When it comes to payroll, however, the quasi home team has the clear edge: Boosted by the surprise late selection of Alex Ovechkin, Team Foligno broke the bank and shattered the NHL’s salary cap with a payroll of $122.91 million, more than $16 million more than Team Toews. The team also picked up $2.25 million in salary when it made a trade to acquire Phil Kessel for Tyler Seguin. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2340937-nhl-all-star-game-2015-rosters-analyzing-team-foligno-vs-team-toews-after-draft
