This year there won't be an All-Star Game in Columbus, a casualty of the NHL lockout. That doesn't mean we can't build our own de facto All-Star teams here.

The caveats are that the elected players must stay in their position -- so you can't make Steven Stamkos a winger, for example -- and only one player from each team is allowed. For example, Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin couldn't both make the roster in the West since they both play for the Canucks.
