Well, the rosters are now complete for the Eastern Conference team playing in the All Star Game later this month, and Alex Ovechkin is on it.
That's the good news.
The bad is that he will be the only Capitals representative at the All Star Game in Montreal on January 25th. Mike Green was not selected, nor was Nicklas Backstrom. Backstrom was a longshot for this event, but Green's absence has the flavor of a voting related incident. Mike Komisarek -- a fine defenseman in his own right -- will start as a product of techno-ballot-stuffing.
Are there five hockey fans in North America outside of Montreal who think Komisarek should be there instead of Green?
