OTTAWA — The NHL All-Star Game is Sunday, and now it's just a matter of which Ottawa Senators or Boston Bruins player will win Most Valuable Player. OK, there may be a few others in contention, but we're just playing the percentages here.
The 2012 MVP will join an illustrious list that includes Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr Mario Lemieux, Gordie Howe and Eric Daze. Via Puck Daddy's infographics ace Dan Gustafson of SixteenWins.com, here is an illustrated look at NHL All-Star Game MVPs and their other accomplishments that season.
