Earlier today, the league announced the starters for the upcoming All-Star Game.
Here's who that elite list of stars will include:
2008 Eastern Conference All-Star Team Starting Lineup
Goal: Martin Brodeur, New Jersey
Defense: Andrei Markov, Montreal
Defense: Zdeno Chara, Boston
Forward: Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh
Forward: Vincent Lecavalier, Tampa Bay
Forward: Daniel Alfredsson, Ottawa
2008 Western Conference All-Star Team Starting Lineup
Goal: Roberto Luongo, Vancouver
Defense: Nicklas Lidstrom, Detroit
Defense: Dion Phaneuf, Calgary
Forward: Henrik Zetterberg, Detroit

Forward: Jarome Iginla, Calgary
From the look of things, two quick notes:
1.No Ilya Kovalchuk for the stacked East
2.The Western lineup with the exception of goaltender is made up of all Red Wings and Flames.
We'll have much more later on.
