Chara Named All-Star Captain

The only reason I consider this worthy of writing about is that Captains in the NHL All-Star Game pick their teams. Daniel Alfredsson, of the hosting Ottawa Senators, will be the opposing Captain.

There are a few people that might not make Zdeno's team:

Phil Kessel
Daniel Sedin
Henrik Sedin

Jason Pominville might also not be one of Chara's favorites.

The only Canadien on the team is goalie Carey Price, and I can see Chara selecting him if Tim Thomas is not available.

Unfortunately, the Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs dominate the rosters. There are 7 representatives from the Ontario teams. All 5 of the players voted in by fans were on either team. I love Canadian fan's passion for the game, but their devotion to their team skirts the boundaries between passion and psychologically treatable levels of irrationality.
