Pens Flanked On Both All Star Teams

Malkin was the First Pittsburgh Penguin to be Chosen in the 3rd round of the NHL All Star Fantasy Draft by Team Chara.    Malkin is currently the Points leader and questionably the best Player in Hockey.

He was followed up Kris Letang in the 5th round by Team Alfredson.    Kris Letang was a late add to the team for he just got back on the ice within the last couple of weeks from a Concusstion.

Letang has scored a point in every game he has played in since he has come back.    He is tough and tenacious on D, and will display those talents at the All Star Game.     Team Alfredson then added the last of the Penguin AllStars.    He chose James Neal in the 14th round.

Neal is among league leaders in goals and scoring having his best season to date. He is also leading the league in shots which plays well in this all star game for there is no hitting and a premium is put on goal scoring.
