It’s All-Star week for the NHL with the second year of the backyard captains pick format.  Daniel Alfredsson of the hometown Senators is one captain while Bruins captain Zdeno Chara will pick the other team.  All the All-Star weekend action happens on NBC Sports Network with the fantasy draft Thursday night at 8 pm ET and the skills competition and actual game to follow.  Whether people will actually tune in to an All-Star event that is gimmicky even compared to other All-Star Games remains to be seen.  At least you still have time to take sides in the battle between Team Alfredsson and Team Chara!
