I don't see a draft. I only see a replay of the 2009 ASG. Anyone else?

Yeah, my bad it is tomorrow. I didn't put a date but if the OP was read it was possibly something that could have been deciphered.

You gotta take Stamkos if you actually are drafting in the hopes to win (take the best player available). If the teams dont really care about winning or losing (since winning the all star game does not come with any benefits) and you are just drafting to have fun and to put on a show than if you are Nick you have to pick Cam Ward first. Not the best goalie there, but it will get the Carolina fans on your side so they arent rooting against you. Staal will more than likely pick ward or Skinner to keep his fans on his side, so you gotta try and get ward if that is your strategy. If he wants to win though nick should go with stamkos for sure....and possibly see if there is a way to trade Kane for a player to be named later.

Also, i dont know why, but the last few seasons ive had a huge man crush on claude Giroux and am really glad to see him make the games. I have a feeling he might have a really good night.

I bet, crosby and Ovie will not get picked early. The two captains will pick lower rated people, to build suspense.

This isn't a serious game, and nobody will take it that way. The Media will want to build suspense, and so both captains will pick oddball early picks, and move into picking the "top guys" around the middle.

Nobody really cares about this game.

The twins from Vancouver will go early. No goalie will get picked last, even though you know damn well that logically, if you already picked 2 solid goalies, picking a third is not a priority....but none of them will go last.

The first ten or so picks I bet will be oddball, with the middle pics being dramatic. In the first ten picks, some stars will get picked too, otherwise people will lose interest. But they'll save the "good" picks for when viewer ratings would be highest :)

Crosby and Ovie, might go earlier.........just because people are mostly interested in them.

That's how media works :)

Crosbys so popular he'll go 1st overall without even being available to begin with

Now that I think about it, I'd just draft the team full of enforcers, and proceed to pummel the s*** out of the All Stars, in front of a horrified Raleigh crowd and a stupefied Bettman. :D

Nothing says Lidstrom is required to choose star players, right?

Got to be some sort of drinking games to come up with for this like they did for the WC to make it reasonable. Granted that was an actual game but dang... lol

TSN

Biz Nasty and Doan face doing a mock.

Biz got more votes than Doan laugh.gif Twitter is obviously worth it for some.

I'd go for Stamkos with the first pick.

Be sure to update the OP as soon as the draft is over.

No prob thumbup.gif. A few of Pierre's most obvious of statements:

"If I'm Lidstrom, I'm going after skill," said McGuire. "I wantSteven Stamkos on my team, I want Shea Weber to anchor my defence. I want both Sedins on my team. I don't just want one, I want to get greedy, I want both. I want all the skill. I'll take Alex Ovechkin and the hottest scorer in the last three NHL All-Star Games in Rick Nash. I'll take him too. Forget family, I want to win!"

Anyone else like me and looking forward to the draft more than the actual game?

Same. Kind of makes it a real-life NHL '11 type feel to it. And interesting to see what strategies they use and all that.

If you can't get both of the Sedins then which one do you pick? I guess it depends on need but my answer by default is Henrik.

Lidstrom has an incredibly dry sense of humor, i hope his witty humor shows tonight :)

This will be a good audition of Lidstrom showing he can coach and when he retires he can be our defensive coach :sly:

I think it would be awesome if Stall and Lids made a deal to pick the two Sedins with the last 2 picks ! :lol:
