Team Alfredsson: Where the Ottawa Senators and Team Sweden collide

Daniel Alfredsson took a while to unite his teammates, but he eventually did what he could during 2012 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft by selecting Erik Karlsson (1), Jason Spezza (2), and Milan Michalek (12). He also brought a number of his countrymen on board, with Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, and Alex Edler joining Alfredsson, Karlsson, and Henrik Lundqvist on the team. The lone exception for the Senators: Colin Greening and his rookie teammates were placed on Team Chara.

Alfredsson also picked most of the locally renowned talent, with local boy Claude Giroux, former Ottawa 67 Logan Couture and former Senator Brian Elliott on board. The only local connection on Team Chara (other than Zdeno Chara himself) is former Ottawa 67 Brian Campbell.

Fittingly, all three Maple Leafs are on the opposing squad, with Zdeno Chara and co-captain Joffrey Lupul bringing Phil Kessel and Dion Phaneuf into the fold on their team. The Boston Bruins were also on that squad, with Tim Thomas and Tyler Seguin joining Chara.
