Staals will play together as will Kane, Toews
You have to love the Staal boys. Man do they love sticking it to each other.

Eric stepped to the mic, ready to make the 11th overall pick, and perhaps it was time to take his little brother.

"Our next pick, from the New York Rangers...Henrik Lundqvist."

Burn! Man, I bet Marc was crushed. Actually, Marc said countless times he'd rather play against him, so there was probably some sweet relief. He probably wanted to lay out Marc if he got the chance.

But with his next pick, Eric took Marc, bringing the drama of Marc potentially going last to an end.

There was some playful tension on the stage once he was up there, but it's probably best for their parents that they're o the same team for once.

Picks 15 and 16 were Blackhawks -- Team Staal took Patrick Sharp and Team Lidstrom and Pat Kane took Jonathan Toews.

Kane seemed to be really against the idea of Toews being on his team, but they decided to take the best available player. Maybe Toews will get Kane back by shaving some grooves into the side of his head while he sleeps to teach him a lesson.

Wait. Never mind.

Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
