Claude Giroux and Kimmo Timonen are among the 36 NHL veterans named to the 2012 All-Star Game today by the league. Rookies Matt Read and Sean Couturier were among the 12 rookies named to the team as well, giving the Philadelphia Flyers a total of four representatives in Ottawa. All-Star Weekend kicks off Friday, January 27th.

The Flyers have more representatives at the game this year than any team in the league that's not hosting the game, with four. Ottawa has five, Vancouver also has four, and everybody else is extremely inferior.

Not heading to Ottawa will be Scott Hartnell, who some might call a snub. It's hard to judge that without seeing the full list of All-Stars, which is set to be released shortly. Here's the full list. Would you call Hartnell a snub?

Will Timonen actually be going to the game? After Saturday's game at the Wells Fargo Center, Timonen said he wasn't sure about it. He said he'd have to think about it when the time got here.

*deep breath* Um, I don't know. It's hard to say. You know, obviously, it's hard to say no if you're chosen, but it's one of those things, if you've got a little injury, it's time to heal your injuries that time. When that time comes, I'm going to really take a look at it, the situation.

We'll see what he decides.
