Sure, it's an exhibition game that's meant to be fun, but let's start picking apart the picks of these guys as we wind down.

Cam Ward is a better goaltender than I'll ever be, but as the No. 1 pick in a draft like this, I think Staal sank his team off the bat. Then Zdeno Chara in the fourth round because Staal doesn't want to get hit by him? This is simply poor drafting strategy.

Look at the cagey Lidstrom, grabbing Stamkos and Weber and Byfuglien while Staal took his brother about 6 rounds too soon.

Anything can happen, but I'm going to offer an early prediction of Team Lidstrom 14, Team Staal 3.

Quote of the Day

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.
