Since this is my All Star Team, I made it bigger than 40 players with four face off specialists and add SSDM! Make it fun for the players and the fans. I also want to give a nod to some guys that have been having solid years.
Attack: Couple of surprises here
Ben Rubeor-Makes plays when the Bayhawks need them.
Matt Gibson-Key cog in the Lizard’s offense.
David Emala- He is having a great year and needs to be an All Star.
Mike Bocklett- I went with him over Law due to injury.
Tommy Palasek-Does not get enough credit.
Chad Wiedmaier-Helped bring physicality back to Boston defense.
Scott Ratliff-He is captain for a reason.
Mitch Belisle-He’s the quintessential all pro with a solid no nonsense approach to the game.
Tucker Durkin-Faced with the choice of facing him or locked in a broom closet with wolverine on red bull go with the wolverine. The wolverine does not have a stick.
Face Off: Show some love for the guys that determine possession
Chris Mattes-Was a tie between Chris and Craig Bunker, but Chris has better face off % just on a team with a losing record
Goalie: Couple of new faces and I will take some grief for it
Tyler Fiorito-He deserves it after the year he has been having
Pierce Basset-Just like Fiorito, but on team with losing record.
Middies: Not a lot of surprises here
SSDM: Seriously these guys are important to their team’s success
Josh Hawkins-Does not get enough credit for on ball defense.
Jovan Miller-He is getting it done for two different teams this year.
Kevin Unterstein-Gets overlooked in New York’s star laden roster. Even picks up a pole when needed.
Steve DeNapoli-Don’t sleep on him or he will burn you.
