BTW Byfuglien is really fat.

Most of these allstar games are unwatchable anyway.


Its better than watching basketball. Its still hockey, and its good to see your guys get recognized by their peers. I thought I would hate the draft, but it was actually interesting to me.

yeah, kinda lame. I was hoping Staal would select Burns (instead of Karlsson) and Richards... instead of ??? I think he could have gotten Skinner with a later pick.

I hate the All Star game. I don't care if it's East vs. West, North America vs the World, or this draft GARBAGE, but this game sucks. They don't hit. It's just a 15-14 borefest.

I want to see brawls and injuries dammit!

I think after those comments Marc made I would have liked to have seen Eric drag out his Hank pick a little longer.

"Our next pick is someone we have to pick, I know him well" etc......"Henrik Lundqvist."

that would have been great.

I lol'd at OV taking a pic of Kessel sitting all by himself.

Other than that, I thought it was gimmicky. Lots of storylines this year that won't be able to be followed up on in subsequent all-star drafts. Eric drafting Marc. Eric drafting his Carolina teammates. Kane and Toews. Splitting up the Sedins.

This should be a one time thing, IMO.

Team Lidstrom has all centers lol

H. Sedin, Stamkos, Richards, Kopitar, Toews, Duchene, and Briere (Although Briere plays wing sometimes)

Couple thoughts...

- Would have been a lot better if the captains had more entertaining personalities

- This gimmick will lose all its luster (if it even had any) if repeated in the future

I bet Kessel didn't care when he was picked. He didn't look upset at all. But he definitely wished it was a better car =P

Uhhh everyone out there had a good laugh with the new Honda.

That's like one of us getting a shiny brand new Geo Metro. (No offense Metro drivers, at least it goes from A to B sometimes)
