Helle has an amazing record versus Minnesota so I think he gets that game on Saturday.  That would mean Mason plays Friday.  So I agree with you. 

True, but on the other hand, Mason is 8-12-3 career against Chicago and 8-6-1 against the Wild.

Is it an afternoon game on Sat?

I wouldn't put it past Maurice to start Helle two in a row. So I usually expect him to start the first game.
Game on Saturday starts at 6:00pm.

they have a week rest after these next two - I wouldn't be surprised to see Helly start both...either way we can win both.

Yeah. I think Mason got in this past game just in case Helle looks rough on Friday. But if he starts on Fruday, and looks good, I can easily see PoMo going back-to-back with him.

Me to PoMo back to back with Helle likely. The reason Mason went yesterday. I'd start Mason Friday though if it were me. Helle needs his rest though bigger rest breaks are up coming for the jets.

For what it's worth, I think I'd play Helle in Chicago and go back to Mason in Minny.

Could've been three had Scheifele not been injured. But this is still great news! Both have carried the Jets this season.

If 55 is healthy, I don't think 26 gets the nod.  Not that they don't both deserve it, but its rare getting 3 p;layers on the allstar team...

The Blackhawks had that just last season (amid considerable controversy) and they were fighting for top spot in the Central, just as the Jets are now.

I think the "controversy" part is key. The Blackhawks get a lot of love, and even on the radio they were saying if Crawford was healthy he'd be in instead of Helle. I feel like if the tables were turned and the Blackhawks were in first and the Jets were a bubble wildcard team, we would be getting our token single nomination and that would be it. I guess that's probably a consequence of the business side of it.

I mean, there's controversy every year as far as ASG selections go. Every fanbase always ends up in arms over a perceived snub or a selection of a player not on their team. Unfortunately, the new format means every team has at least one player selected (which is silly, IMO), so it's inevitable there will be snubs for what seem like obvious choices.

The Blackhawks do get a lot of love, which is strange this season considering how mortal they look. Then again, it's just the ASG and has no bearing on anything. Might as well just have fun with it and enjoy for it what it is.

Probably but I don't think it would have been right. For some reason, Wheeler doesn't get a lot of respect but he's been head and shoulders our best and most consistent player all year.
