Given the format that the All Star Game has been in the last few seasons there are obvious omissions, but to claim anyone was snubbed is ridiculous. It’s truly unrealistic to have everyone in the All Star Game, plus there are people who aren’t interested in being part of the All Star festivities (see note below). So while people may claim that “so and so” was snubbed, you don’t know if said player wanted to go in the first place.

 

*Alex Ovechkin was voted by the fans to be captain of the Metro All Stars. Since the announcement Ovechkin has declared that he will not be attending the All Star festivities for the second year in a row.
