PHT got to the most important bit of the 2012 Fantasy Draft already (i.e. showering attention on Logan Couture‘s humiliation), but you might want to know how the full draft went. Consider this post your guide to how it all went down.
Starting things off, the captains and their alternates/assistants:
Team Chara won the coin toss and received the first selection, so here’s the pick-by-pick rundown. (Thanks to NHL.com for saving me some typing.)
Team Chara: Jamie Benn, LW, Dallas
Team Alfredsson: Logan Couture, C, San Jose
Team Chara received these rookies:
Team Alfredsson drew these first-year players:
(Please note that the aforementioned rookies will participate in the skills competition only.)
With that in mind, let’s have fun with two polls:
First, which roster is best equipped to win the skills competition?
Lastly, which team should win the 2012 NHL All-Star Game?
To make it easier, here are the two rosters (in order of selection):
Forwards: Alfredsson, Spezza, Giroux, Stamkos, the Sedin twins, Neal, Tavares, Hartnell, Pominville and Couture.
Defensemen: Karlsson, Letang, Weber, Girardi, Yanle and Edler.
Goalies: Lundqvist, Quick, Elliott
Forwards: Lupul, Datsyuk, Malkin, Hossa, Perry, Kessel, Kane, Iginla, Gaborik, Eberle, Seguin, and Benn.
Defensemen: Chara, Timmonen, Suter, Campbell, Phaneuf and Wideman.
Goalies: Thomas, Price and Howard.
