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 don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
