While the rest of the NHL All-Stars are preparing for Saturday night's Skills Competition in chilly Ottawa, Alex Ovechkin is making good on his promise to chill where palm trees sway.
According to a re-tweeted photo posted on the website Alex Ovetjkin, the Capitals captain is spending All-Star weekend in Miami with his buds.
The photo is sure to spark some spirited talk in Ottawa, where a few Canadian pundits are ticked at Ovechkin's decision to boycott the All-Star Game festivities that he helped make famous.
What are your thoughts? Should Alex be locking himself up in his 4.28 million mansion in McLean this weekend? Should he be skating suicides out at Kettler? Or are you cool with him catching rays in Miami?
