My Fantasy Line-up For The 2012 NHL All-Star Game In Ottawa

With the NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft completed, here are my coaching decisions for the All-Star game line-up:

Team Alfredsson

FORWARDS
Daniel Alfredsson - Claude Giroux - Steven Stamkos
Henrik Sedin  - Jason Spezza - Daniel Sedin
Milan Michalek - Jason Pominville - John Tavares
James Neal - Logan Couture - Scott Hartnell

DEFENSE
Erik Karlsson - Kris Letang
Shea Weber - Alexander Edler
Dan Girardi - Keith Yandle

GOALIES
Henrik Lundqvist
Brian Elliott
Jonathan Quick 

Like a kid in a candy store. I slotted the 3 Sens forwards on the top 3 lines to please the homecrowd (and myself). Spezza with the Sedin twins would be a magical, creative trio.

TEAM CHARA

FORWARDS
Pavel Datsyuk - Evgeni Malkin - Corey Perry
Joffrey Lupul  - Marian Hossa - Marian Gaborik
Jarome Iginla - Tyler Seguin - Phil Kessel
Jamie Benn - Patrick Kane - Jordan Eberle

DEFENSE
Zdeno Chara  - Brian Campbell
Ryan Suter - Kimmo Timonen
Dion Phaneuf - Dennis Wideman

GOALIES
Carey Price
Jimmy Howard
Tim Thomas

Every line is a first line, but the Malkin Trio is insane. I put Thomas last in the goalie rotation for reasons I previously explained.

The All-Star game will be televised at 4 pm EST Sunday, January 29, on CBC, RDS, NBC Sports Network. Don't forget to check out the Skills Competition on the 28th starting at 7 pm EST.

Who would you pencil in together? Any duos or trios that you feel you need to see? Drop your thoughts in the comments.
