Zubov the only All-Star from this group of Stars

It seemed Zubie would be a shoo-in this season, how could he not be?  But I am very shocked at the lack of other Stars players.  Yes, I know I tend to have a small biased towards my own team, but how can Mike Ribeiro not make the All-Star team after the year he’s had so far?  It’s really quite saddening.

Here is the list of Players for the 2008 NHL All Star Game.

Manny Legace (St Louis Blues)
Evgeni Nabokov (San Jose Sharks)
Chris Osgood (Detroit Red Wings)

Nicklas Lidstrom (Detroit Red Wings-Starter)
Dion Phaneuf (Calgary Flames-Starter)
Ed Jovanovski (Phoenix Coyotes)
Duncan Keith (Chicago Blackhawks)
Chris Pronger (Anaheim Ducks)
Sergei Zubov (Dallas Stars)

Henrik Zetterberg (Detroit Red Wings-Starter)
Pavel Datsyuk (Detroit Red Wings-Starter)
Jarome Iginla (Calgary Flames-Starter)
Jason Arnott (Nashville Predators)
Marian Gaborik (Minnesota Wild)
Ryan Getzlaf (Anaheim Ducks)
Shawn Horcoff (Edmonton Oilers)
Anze Kopitar (Los Angeles Kings)
Rick Nash (Columbus Blue Jackets)
Henrik Sedin (Vancouver Canucks)
Paul Stastny (Colorado Avalanche)
Joe Thornton (San Jose Sharks)

Anyone see a problem with this?  Just over 20% of this roster are Red Wings, which makes me hate this All-Star game already.  I watched it last season mostly because it was in my home town and I was able to attend the first day of events.  This year?  Not interested so much, but we’ll see.
