With the announcements of the rosters for each division’s All-Star team comes countless players who might have gotten snubbed and left off the lists. Some divisions are flooded with talent and this makes it difficult to identify the best of the best, considering the strong competition.
Players who have had their names come up in snub talk is Talbot, Columbus’ Zach Werenski, Chicago’s Artemi Panarin and Boston’s David Pastrnak. These are only a few names who have come up in snub talk. From there, there have been players who have also been surprising to grace the All-Star rosters.
Who is your biggest snub and surprise of the All-Star roster? Personally, I’d name the biggest snub as Talbot and the biggest surprise as Arizona‘s Mike Smith. Of course, these two players could have easily canceled each other out.
