Draft Day - Fantasy Special


All of the all-stars are in Raleigh now and the captains and their alternates have been chatting.  Friday was the first fantasy draft-format for the NHL all-stars and all fans of this mid-season break had their attentions on it.

So who picked who?  Who was first?  Who was last?  Which brothers and teammates were split up?


Team Staal:
(1st pick, 1st overall) Cam Ward (CAR)
Alex Ovechkin (WSH)
Daniel Sedin (VAN)
Zdeno Chara (BOS)
Rick Nash (CBJ)
Henrik Lundqvist (NYR)
Marc Staal (NYR)
Patrick Sharp (CHI)
Dan Boyle (SJS)
Carey Price (MTL)
Jeff Skinner (CAR)
Kris Letang (PIT)
Claude Giroux (PHI)
Erik Karlsson (OTT)
Corey Perry (ANA)
Patrik Elias (NJD)

Martin Havlat (MIN)
Anze Kopitar (LAK)

To have missed this, you have missed some golden entertainment.  The banter and interviews between the picks were what was the real entertainment.

The rookies get to get to pick their teams so who have they chosen?

The rookies for Team Staal:
Logan Couture (SJS)
Tyler Ennis (BUF)
Michael Grabner (NYI)
Jamie McBain (CAR)
Tyler Seguin (BOS)
PK Subban (MTL)

The rookies for Team Lidstrom:
Evgeny Dadonov (FLR)
Oliver Ekman-Larsson (PHX)
Cam Fowler (ANA)
Taylor Hall (EDM)
Kevin Shattenkirk (COL)
Derek Stepan (NYR)

I've got some money and pride running on Team Lidstrom this year, but who is your favourite?
