Wondering if any of the potential draft picks are nervous about being the last player standing in the 2011 All-Star Player Fantasy Draft powered by Cisco? Maybe there is a player who is confident he will be chosen first?
NHL Network will have a two-hour show leading up the draft starting at 6 p.m. ET on Friday. Deb Placey and Heidi Androl will be interviewing players and their families in the green room to find out what the All-Stars are thinking before the event. Team captains Eric Staal and Nicklas Lidstrom also will discuss their strategy about the forthcoming fantasy draft.
After the draft is complete, NHL Network will have a one-hour recap show starting at 9:30 p.m. The alternate captains (Ryan Kesler, Mike Green, Martin St. Louis and Patrick Kane) will be interviewed afterwards for insight into the picks and to handicap the weekend.
