St. Louis Alternate Captain on All Star Team
 
I didn't see this anywhere else. If it was, Sotnos can remove it.

Will be with Nicklas Lidstrom. Chicago's Patrick Kane will serve as the other alternate for Team Lidstrom.

He says he is hoping they get the 1st pick as he wants to play with Stamkos.

Then I guess he would want the second pick since OV is the finest hockey player in the world, after Cindy, and would have to be picked first. :coolwink:

Since we are changing the whole game, how about next time awarding goals and starting the game out with the results of the skills competition? That would require that the captains consider how people would score the night before when putting together their team.

Actually, I've seen some say that they would pick Chara first given his ability to win the hardest shot contest and his overall play.

No Ovie or Cindy as an Alt? Did the execs at the NHL office smoke some meth? This is definitely not like them.
:coolwink:

As much as I dislike the whole All Star weekend, I think they made a masterful choice on the captains. The alternates were really a mixed bag without any pattern.

I don't think OV or Cindy had to be captains. Allowing them to be selected early still gives them the recognition that the league wants.

I see what you did there with the sunglasses-guy

Ovechkin's in the conversation but can't possibly ever qualify for that title till he loses his hard-earned reputation as a showboating hot dog and chippy, choppy cheap-shot type of chap :medical:

The All-Star freestyle shootout competition is at least specifically designed for over-the-top individual spotlight-hogging...right up Ovechkin's alley. Wonder what he'll pull out of his trick bag to top the floppy hat, sunglasses and two sticks at once :pixiedust:

Oh how I enjoy CSI jokes. Always good for a cheap laugh.
