Who Deserves an ASG Roster Spot?

The NHL All Star Line-ups will be announced on Thursday, and everyone is making their own rosters, so I'm jumping onto the bandwagon. Here are my picks of who will be there. Keep in mind that there has to be at least one player from every team, even if it's just a rookie. Tell me who I snubbed!

Just for fun, because my brother for some reason edited Lidstrom out for Jonathan Ericsson when he read this, here is the 'All-Terrible Team' starters:

F - LEINO (BUF) - 10 points for a guy making $4.5 million

F - NIEDERREITER (NYI) - 5th overall pick only has one point in 17 games

F - COMEAU (CGY) - Has 0 points with NYI, plus minus is ungodly -14

D - ERICSSON (DET) - Just plain sucks

D - PARDY (DAL) - One assist  and makes $2 million a year.

G - ROLOSON (TB) - Yzerman is on the phone for a starter that will need to be better than a 42 year old with a 3.76 GAA and only 6 wins

Price is making it in for the Habs over Plekanec, it's almost a fact at this point. His stats aren't the best they've ever been but Price is by far the best player for Montreal. Diaz is a popular choice for a rookie because he has some points but I don't think he should be there either. Emelin is the best Habs rookie but he's not ASG material.

So you're saying Price over Khabibulin? I guess then we need another forward
