I don’t know what’s funnier about this year’s NHL All Star Draft. The fact that Alexander Ovechkin pretty much boycotted it, or Scott Hartnell getting a perm before the draft?
Ovechkin, the All Star break is for the fans, but you did the right thing. You were suspended for playing the game too physical, and you stuck it right back at Brendan Shanahan, I respect that.
As for you Scott Hartnell, good job not being picked last, but come on, cut that hair. Who gets perms anymore?
Well here you have Team Chara and Team Alfredsson’s choices.
Team Zdeno Chara, Assistant Joffrey Lupul
Pavel Datsyuk (1st overall pick)
Team Daniel Alfredsson, Assistant Henrik Lundqvist
Kris Letang (straightened his hair for this draft)
Scott Hartnell (got a perm before the draft)
Logan Couture (38th, last pick overall)
So there you have the teams, hope you enjoy the Skills Competition and the All Star game. I still don’t know how a guy like Hartnell gets into this game over a player like Ilya Kovalchuk, but I’m sure they will add a “Falling down Competition”.
