Instead of talking normal hockey last night, Tim and Frank gathered together on a Thursday evening with no hockey games on television to perform there own version of the NHL All Star Game Mock Draft. With out any further ado, in case you missed the show or want a hard copy of our selections to compare to the real selections:
Team Lindstrom (Kane, St. Louis) (selected by Frank from The Rat Trick
G – Jonas Hiller, Henrik Lundqvist, Marc-Andre Fleury
D – Dustin Byfuglien, Brent Burns, Kris Letang, Zdeno Chara, Keith Yandle
F – Steven Stamkos, Jonathan Toews, Alexander Ovechkin, Matt Duchene, Patrick Sharpe, Rick Nash, Claude Giroux, Patriak Elias, Brad Richards, Martin Havlat
Frank attacked the offense in the draft and took many forwards early on.
Team Staal (Kesler, Green) Selected by Tim from SabreNoise:
G – Cam Ward, Tim Thomas, Carey Price
D – Duncan Keith, Shea Weber, Erik Karlsson, Marc Staal, Dan Boyle
F – Jeff Skinner, Danny Briere, Paul Stastny, David Backes, Anze Kopitar, Corey Perry, Phil Kessel, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Loui Eriksson
Tim went with the home town boys first, trying to get the home crowd behind the team early. After that, he went strickly with guys that he liked, however; it backfired as he was not able to get the Sedin twins split up, and was stuck with players from the Dallas Stars and Toronto Maple Leafs.
To get all the background on the selections, listen in to the archived show, as well as catching them live every week.
