Sharp and then Toews, it happened
15. Patrick Sharp, Chicago, C/W (Team Staal)
16. Jonathan Toews, Chicago, C (Team Lidstrom)


Wouldn't have guessed that Sharp would be gone before Toews, but it happened. Staal went with his own hometown boy, Thunder Bay's own Sharpe. Not a bad call considering the production he's having this season.

Kane stood up representing Team Lidstrom and, after saying, "I can't believe I'm going to do this" he went with Toews. Kane said earlier in the week that he wanted to go up against Toews, but Toews said he thinks St. Louis and Lidstrom outvoted him in this pick and then forced the embarrasment of No. 88 by having him say Toews' name.
Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
