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.
