Mock All-Star Draft: WUYS Style

27 Jan

Now what kind of hockey bloggers would we be if we didn’t do our own Mock Draft for NHL All-Star Game?  Terrible ones, that’s what kind.

Just to preface, this draft was conducted via Gmail chat and remained mostly civil and professional, with the exception of when Pants drafted Sharp and when Chuck drafted Letang.  Choice , colorful language was used.  There were threats of violence and the removal of earrings and press-on nails before engaging in a girly slap fight.  We learned how from watching Mike Green.

And these guys…

Pants vs. Chuck

We used a very highly scientific method of selecting these teams, which included not only their obvious talent and season performance thus far, but also how awesome their hair/beards are.

So here you go…

Team Pants vs. Team Chuck

(aka Team Staal)

(aka Team Lidstrom)



  • Patrick Kane
  • Martin St. Louis (SQUISHY!)
  • Steve Stamkos
  • Daniel Sedin
  • Henrik Sedin
  • Rick Nash
  • Brad Richards
  • Matt Duchene
  • Paul Stastny
  • David Backes
  • Anze Kopitar
  • Claude Giroux

  • Mike Green (would have drafted him first, obvs)
  • Duncan Keith (aka Duncan Teeth)
  • Dustin Byfuglien
  • Marc Staal
  • Erik Karlsson
  • Brent Burns


  • Marc-Andre Fleury
  • Cam Ward
  • Jonas Hiller

So based on this mock draft, who do you think will win this year’s All Star Game? Who will be the MVP?

Chuck suggested that Brent Burns should dye his beard black a la Brian Wilson of the SF Giants.  Thus it only makes sense he would be on Pants’ team.  FEAR THE BEARD.  And we’re not talking about that Amish nonsense the Staal boys grow during playoffs.

Brent Burns
(the hockey player)

    Oh god – I almost can’t decide… Too hard… But… But…. My team players on one team plus LePretty may have to swing me to Team Chuck (sorry Pants), Staal sandwich potential notwithstanding. Even with Sad Panda on Pants’ team.

    What would I have done if Sid and, god forbid, Baby Jordy had been up there? Die, probably.

    Fidget will be proud of you both… He is the NHL’s top slap-fighter!

    I LOVE IT! Good job guys! Although my draft would have simply been Letang VS Ovechkin and left it at that. Who cares about the rest – JUST KIDDING. NOT. Anyway, hope to see y’all on twitter this weekend. 😉

    Chuck, as a kitten you are getting some serious air there. I am impressed. Just wait until Flower mocks Carey Price again, then they’ll be dueling at center ice with all their gear on.

    I got mad kitty ups.

    I find goalie fights hysterical. All that cumbersome equipment and straps and pads. Even if they wanted to really fight, they can’t. Supposed they could strip off some of the gear but by that time, they’d be too exhausted to fight.

    I would love to see Flower pop Price in the mouth with his blocker, though. “Oh my nose!”
