Season's about half over. Who's up for an All-Star discussion? On your marks, get set, go!

What qualifies you as an all-star?

Your name has to be Wilton to qualify.

Actually, it's a league-wide vote. People are nominated and then voted on.

I think rather then open voting this year we should elect a All Star Committee to select the players. Captains + League Officials + a few select others (like Vox) maybe.

Personally I think the awards at the end of the season should be handled the same way.

Ideally I'd like to see NA vs Europe All Star format. On a Saturday afternoon.

problem with Euro vs NA is that you guys have 4 teams to choose from we have 2.
So a lot more NA talent is going to be sidelined. Which would be a shame. How about 2 all star games...All Star NA (pick your best 10 players head to head) and then All Star WORLD (whoever wins the NA comp goes up against the Euro All Stars)

or is that 1 too many games

August's idea sounds good to me, and I think we should do thta, because I can feel August is already shaking, he really wouldn't like to get his ass kicked in the All-Star game, so let's do as he says and he will feel better. Don't worry August, we will apply the mercy rule, so you don't get trashed out there :-P

no seriously, I think it's a good idea

well being the new guy here not sure if my thoughts matter .
But anyways!

This is your All-Star game.
This will be your "Best" players for all divisions. Not pitting the NA players against the Euro players
Not sure how easy things are to change in the score board, but just say this.
select 12 players for each side. 10 skaters and 2 goalies each side.
set the game clock to say ....8-10 minute periods, goalies rotate after half way into game, and then you have plenty of time to get all of your all-star players in the game.

1 game! pick a sat/sun during the day when you can get all players involved.

say pick 2 alternates per team in case someone cant make the game.

Just a "clears throat" ahhh noobs opinion!

The answer to August's concern is clear. Just make sure the NA team has twice the number of players as the Euros.

For the Euros pick 4 skaters, 2 alternates, and a goalie.

For the NA team pick 8 skates 4 alternates, and 2 goalies.

The NA team has to make some line changes but we still get to see the best of the best for both sides and it is an exhibition game, so....

I may be way off base here. But isnt this an all-star game?or is this a world cup type deal? matching euros best against NA best? then why would the Canadians be playing part of the US?.
Yes the NHL all-stars are comprised of players from around the world, but! it is East VS west

20+ members from SL Hockey divided into two separate groups playing in an all-star game.

Last season we played "original teams" vs "expansion teams" with all stars from the Wolves and Whales facing off against players from the Moose and Cobras. That was as good a way of sorting players as any but I really think NA teams vs Euro teams is the way to go this season and the way to showcase our league.

Yes, the NHL all star game is "East" vs "West" but that doesn't work for us because our teams aren't associated with any geographic location. Everyone's "home city" is Jericho Hill. For a while the NHL all star game was "North America" vs "The World" with players aligned based on their birthplace.

It would be cool if we could do some kind of skills competition + all star exhibition and get the folks at SLCN to cover it.

What if we made up some fictional places for the teams to be placed (Euro would be placed still in NA) for reasons such as this?

Fictional places? How would I know whether Anytown was East or West of Heresville?

Heresville is on the East Coast, as you should know, Anytown and Strangecity are on the west, Gawdknows is harder to place being as it's largely central.

1 All Star game is like pullin teeth, 2 would put us in straight jackets (for 2007 anyway). in the futur, 2 games is a good idea)

i like weis' idea best:

"For the Euros pick 4 skaters, 2 alternates, and a goalie.
For the NA team pick 8 skates 4 alternates, and 2 goalies.
The NA team has to make some line changes but we still get to see.."

i think after we get viv's input on this, we can settle on how to divide.

i would love to see a vote among the league, but getting responses from everyone is close to impossibl. mayb gathering league officials would b best. who knows? this is all still experimental.

lets set a tentative, goal date: how about last week of sept? oct? (keeping in
mind that the nhl season beginning in oct ((rite?)) is gonna distract many of us)

we also need uniforms, medals? what else? u wanna do uniforms weis? or delegate 2 somone else? we hav a few artists in the league. vienna is doing ceremonies i think. i don hav much experience w/ all star, but as SE coordinator im eager to jump in :))

so:
what - all star game
when - sept/oct 2007 (tbd)
who - a-chosen by league officials or b- chosen by the entire league
where, jericho of course; how- talkin about it now.

wacha think ?

I like the idea of Jumbled up teams...I wouldn't mind seeing some of the old team mates back together.

BUT

can you imagine being the Defenseman/goalie if you look up and you see Josh Figgis and Lobo Rodriques heading to you?

I ain't scared of Figgis OR Lobo. But I'm also not an all-star!

ok then it would go like this

quadrupeds: Moose, Pandas, Wolves

bipeds: Ravens

legless: Whales, Cobras :-P

SO! I assume whales and cobras would play in the biped teams, right?
