I think it'll be Lupul as well, despite the fact he's having a good season thus far.

I'm pretty sure it will be one of Kessel, Ovechkin, or Sedin.

Almost forgot about that, what a sportsman Ovechkin is. I wonder what the prize for last pick is going to be, who's sponsoring the event?

I think Chara will wait until Alfredsson picks one of the Sedins, and then Chara will pick the other immediately after just to troll them.

I'm going to go with Lupul.

And what's up with the last place pick winning a prize? Congratulations on being the worst player of the bunch in the eyes of the two captains, here's a prize for not matching up with the rest of the talent.

I'm going with Couture. As far as I know, Pominville is respected a lot throughout a the league, but he'll probably be down there.

Just spoke with Pavel Datsyuk who says he wants to be the last pick in the All-Star fantasy draft. "I want the car," he said.

It will not be Lupul people.. He was named a alternate captain last week..

I'd put money on it being Alex Edler. Then again, him and Alfie might have some swedish connection..

Kessel doesn't need another car. Like others in this thread, I hope it's Ovechkin. Kessel will be one of the 1st ones picked and then he whips out his cell phone along with everyone else. Is it too much to ask for all the players except Ovechkin to get together and make an agreement to pick him last?

Also, I wonder what kind of reception Tim Thomas will get? Will Ottawans (hopes that's right) and Canadians in general give a damn about the whole not going to the white house thing? I would assume he gets cheered but maybe I'm wrong.

Given that whoever picks a Sedin first, the other team will pick the other immediately after, and that the Sedins are basically interchangeable, it doesn't make any sense for either captain a Sedin with any pick other than their last pick.

it needs to be kessel every year he's a part of the all star game and they have this format. it would just be too funny. plus, if they just pick him last every year, no one will feel slighted by it and it will just be a funny gag.

kessel just gives the car to charity anyway, so load him up!

Oh darn, no chance to pick Ovechkin last because he's not even going.

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=613450

Oh well, guess we'll have to make fun of Kessel again after all by purposely picking him last.

I bet Chara picks most of the Senators and gets a good reception due to his time in Ottawa before being traded to Boston.

As long as he increases his point production by 20 points and 10 goals every year I'm all for it

Could easily be the Sedins going last. That would make for some drama - who goes dead last? Or Alfie could test Chara's resolve and pick one Sedin, hoping he doesn't pick the other, and Alfie gets both.

Hartnell will be the last pick, almost sure of it. He's one of the top 5 hated players and he's a last minute sub.

I'll give you 1:1000 odds that it won't be Edler.

last pick can't be a defenseman or a goalie

It could see it being Hartsy. I'm pretty sure him, and Lupul were good friends though, so I don't think he'll be last. Unless he asks Lupul not to pick him because he wants a chance at the free car.
