Comparing our mock drafts with Friday's real thing
 
RALEIGH -- All-Star captains Nicklas Lidstrom and Eric Staal have made their picks and now move on to deciding mid-day Saturday which teammates will compete in which Honda SuperSkills events later in the evening at the RBC Center. But before turning the page to the Fastest Skaters or Breakaway Challenge moves, it's time to see how the mock-draft gurus at NHL.com and NHL Network fared.

Here's the skinny on what NHL.com's Dan Rosen and Dave Lozo mocked and how fellow mockers (or is that muckers?) and NHL Network analysts extraordinaire Kevin Weekes and Jeremy Roenick fared. We will let you decide for yourself which of the four was the best prognosticator:

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.

— San Jose forward Logan Couture to The Canadian Press on the Sharks' first-round loss to the Kings after taking a 3-0 series lead
