Don't Panic But There Is A Write In Option For All Star Fan Voting

NHL All Star Fan voting opened today and apparently there is a write in option for Team Captain.

This should go over well.

For Montreal they have Domi and Drouin listed as possible captains.  I would have thrown Tatarrrrrrrr in there, but I'm sure there will be huge Twitter push for him anyway.  

So at this point I'm left wondering who is the most ridiculous captains we can vote for this time around? 

Atlantic Division:

Jonathan Ericsson

He's played his whole career with the Detroit Red Wings and won a cup with them in 2008.  He's 34 and with just 8 games under his belt this year only has 1 point.  A fitting send off would be to give this guy the captaincy in the Atlantic!

Metro Division:

Drew Stafford

This guy had a couple great season with the Sabres at the turn of the decade.  He was given a PTO this year and has been playing with the basement dwelling NJ Devils.  At 33 he's a senior citizen in this league.  He deserves the captaincy in the Metro!

Central Division 

Carl Gunnarsson

Canadian fans living in TO territory recognize this Swede.  For someone drafted in the 7th round he has carved out quite the career for himself.  Over 500 games played for any player is quite the accomplishment.  Give this guy the C this winter!

Pacific Division

Dion Phaneuf

This is the big one.  This guy has carved out nearly 1000 NHL games.  That's hall of fame territory for most, and with almost 500 points he will probably get in someday.  This is the big one.  This is the one I would love to see.  

Phaneuf mic'd up is always gold, but I want a write in for this guy.  He's at the tail end of his career and I think his teammates would rally around this pick.  It would be both a joke and great theater for all. 




We are fucked
