This Was Alfredsson’s All-Star Game

from Tim Wharnsby of CBC

, Even though Daniel Alfresson’s team was defeated 12-9 by Zdeno Chara’s squad in the 2012 NHL all-star game, the day capped off another incredible chapter in the life of the likeable Ottawa Senators captain.

There were so many periphery issues that enveloped the NHL all-star weekend. First, it was Alex Ovechkin’s infantile decision not to attend because of his three-game suspension. When Tim Thomas arrived in town, it was time to revisit his decision not to join his teammates for their White House visit earlier in the week.

On Saturday, NHLPA executive Donald Fehr and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman chimed in on the looming collective agreement talks. Finally, the Sidney Crosby concussion watch became more muddled with the news that he suffered a serious neck injury along the way, too.

The focus, however, kept coming back to the Senators and even former Ottawa players like Zdeno Chara, Marian Hossa and Brian Elliott as well as former Ottawa 67’s junior Logan Couture. But it was the 39-year-old Alfredsson who stole the show with his class, charm and hospitality.
