NHL All-Star Draft
I am extremely excited for Friday's NHL "All-Star" draft. This was a brilliant idea and I believe will be copied by other sports leagues. You have captains choosing their teams. How awesome is that??!! You basically never see this happen in sports, where players draft their All-Star teams. I am very excited, though I would have preferred to see Crosby against Ovechkin, such that their rivalry could become a component. Stall and Lidstrom don't have the same animosity.
