Who Are Your ASG Captains?

from TSN,

When it was announced last November that the NHL All-Star game was changing its format to have two “team captains” select their squads in schoolyard-esque fashion, many people likely thought of Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin as the most suitable candidates. After all, who better to represent the league at its premier skills showcase than two of its best players and most marketable stars?

But just two months later, Crosby is out with a concussion and may have to miss the game, and Ovechkin has been achieving well below his usual level of offensive excellence thus far. With a player vote set to determine the identities of the captains, it’s possible we could see another dynamic duo selected for the two leadership roles in Carolina.

Ovechkin & Crosby were poor choices, and the rest they suggested were dumb too, besides Nicklas Lidstrom & Jarome Iginla. Lidstrom & Staal is a good idea.
