Here is SI's All-Star ream for the season's first half (all stats through Sunday).

G NIKOLAI KHABIBULIN
Lighting
The first-half MVP might help Tampa Bay sneak into the playoffs for the second time in its 10-year history. His .935 save percentage is dazzling.

D NICKLAS LIDSTROM
Red Wings
A superb positional blueliner, he rarely makes mistakes, and he's had 28 points for the NHL's best team.

D BRIAN LEETCH
Rangers
He has been a mainstay for go-go New York while taking care of his end well enough to be an impressive +19.

C MATS SUNDIN
Maple Leafs
No center has played with as much commitment in all zones as Sundin, who has surged since the 2001 playoffs.

RW JAROME IGINLA
Flames
After a career-best 71 points last season, this prototypical power forward is the league's leading scorer.

LW ERIC DAZ´┐Ż
Blackhawks
He's still primarily a one-way player, but from the blueline in he's dangerous, getting the nod over the Red Wings' Brendan Shanahan and the Blues' Keith Tkachuk.
