'My' NHL All-Stars

We all know who the starting 6 All-Stars will be.  Here is my crack at figuring out who the other 58 or so players in attendance will be.

I have included 24 forwards, 12 defensemen and 6 goalies, along with 12 rookies, who last year participated in the skills competition.  I have also ensured that each club has representation in the weekend. It was not an easy task as the representation factor made it difficult to leave some players off.

Here are my choices, along with a few that were left off the list but could easily be added:
