Lidstrom as captain is a no-brainer

Staal isn't surprising either considering he's having a great season so far, he's captain of the Hurricanes, and not to mention that the ASG is in Carolina after all.

But the question is, which goalie will he pick first, Cam Ward or the more deserving Tim Thomas?

In before the 'OMG The all-star game is stupid and it sux' comments all start flying in, by our 'barely toilet trained' fanbase.

I'm sure he will take Ward, but Thomas is the most deserving of all goalies, including Fleury who shouldn't even be part of this ASG

The game itself will probably be boring, it always is. It's only normal, it's like watching a practice scrimmage. It's the same in every sport.
The draft and skill competitions could be entertaining though.

Yup, TSN on the Friday night before the game.

Not sure these are the best choices for a made for tv event, you need to pick 2 guys with big personalities that are gonna joke around on tv and have a laugh, both these guys especially Lidstrom are pretty classy tight to the vest kinda guys

ha ha.. the all star game is in Carolina?

I'm sure it's a hot topic on all the tailgates, watercoolers down in Raleigh.

"Who's Lidstrom gonna pick and stuff?"

points to the NHL for trying

Your comment, however, is practically MENSA caliber.

That's actually a pretty good point.

If I had to name couple of captains with big personalities and a sense of humour, I'd go with Ovechkin and maybe Getzlaf.

The baseball all star game is usually really exciting.
