Chara and Weber, hulking D-men, go in the same round
7. Zdeno Chara, Boston, D (Team Staal)
8. Shea Weber, Nashville, D (Team Lidstrom)


A run on blue-liners. A run on giant blue-liners.

Staal picked Chara because he didn't want to face him throughout the game on Sunday. So, to match that pick Lidstrom, via St. Louis, went with the hulking Weber.

The Hardest Shot competition should be fascinating.
Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
