The All Star Game ballot came out today and it was, as usual, full of guys who shouldn't have been on there and there were also a lot of noticeable snubs. Doug from The Detroit Transplant wanted to do something about it and Brad Boswell on Twitter gave us an excellent idea. Me and Doug have set up a 2-man fantasy league where he manages Team Snubs and I manage Team Overrated. His team will be filled with the worst snubs from the ballot, mine with the players that shouldn't have been on it.
We need YOUR help to decide who should be on each team, and we want you to post your ideas of which players were snubbed and which players should not be on the ballot in the comments here. You can give us 1 player name, or enough to fill a team, everything is appreciated.
The teams will be as such:
4 Right Wings
4 Left Wings
3 bench spots
We score goals (1 pt), Assists (1pt), Plus/minus (1 pt), Game winning goals (2 pts) and blocks (.5 pts) for skaters and Wins (1 pt), Goals against (-.1 pts), Shots against (.1 pts) and shutouts (1 pt) for goalies. It is a total points league.
So sound off in the comments with your ideas for who we should include.

Anderson, Backstrom, Brodeur, Bryzgalov, Fleury, Giguere,Halak, Khabibulin, Kiprusoff, Lundqvist, Luongo, Miller, Niemi, Quick, Rinne, Thomas, Vokoun, Ward
