Elias to Staal, Duchene to Lidstrom
31. Patrik Elias, New Jersey Devils, W (Team Staal)
32. Matt Duchene, Colorado, C (Team Lidstrom)


Elias, a three-time All-Star but for the first time since 2002, will have a chance to play for a really good team again. He's used to that with the Devils, but this season has been difficult. He'll join Team Staal.

I really thought Duchene would go higher in this draft. He's having a phenomenal season for the Avalanche with 20 goals and 45 points. He's a great pick here for Lidstrom.
Quote of the Day

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
