2011 All-Star Mock Draft: Simulated Results, Team Staal vs. Team Lidstrom

Ed. Note: I demand a recount. Best of seven or bust!

I ran the results of the Mock All-Star draft held between Team Staal (Steve Whyno of Philly Sports Daily) and Team Lidstrom (our very own Travis Hughes). The game was simulated on NHL 2K10, with rosters updated as of Jan. 1, 2011.

Both teams were rated 99 overall, with 100 offence and 90 defence.

The game was simmed on 20 min periods using Rookie difficulty (To simulate the pace of All-Star games). Penalties were set at 10 of 100. The game was played at RBC Centre in Raleigh, NC.

Here are the Results:

1st Period recap:

Team Staal 4, Team Lidstrom 3

Goals:
Team Staal:
Elias (Kopitar, Giroux)
Stastny (Kesler, Ward)
Elias 2 (Giroux, Burns)
Duchene (unassisted)

Team Lidstrom:
D.Sedin (Kessel, Yandle)
Kessel (H. Sedin, D. Sedin)
Toews (Boyle)

Team Stall jumps out to an early lead with 2 goals from their last round pick Elias (and two nice passes from Giroux!)

2nd Period recap:

Team Staal 6, Team Lidstrom 7

Goals:
Staal:

Nash (Stamkos)
E. Staal (Skinner)

Lidstrom:
Perry (Yandle, Weber)
Byfuglien (Lidstrom, Briere)
Chara (H.Sedin)
Toews 2 (Perry, Kane)

Team Lidstrom takes the lead with some point shots from the big D men!

3rd Period recap:

Final Score: Team Staal 10, Team Lidstrom 8

Goals:
Staal:

Ovechkin (unassisted)
GIROUX (Letang, Elias)
Elias 3 (PP) (E. Staal)
Ovechkin 2 (Stamkos, Nash)

Lidstrom:
Toews 3 (Kane, Byfuglien)

3 Stars: (as picked by the game)
3. Giroux (1 goal, 2 assists)
2. Ovechkin (2 goals, 7 hits)
1. Elias (3 goals, 1 assist)

Notes: Corey Perry called for Hooking with 5 mins to play in tie game, which led to Elias' Hat Trick PPG. Toews scored his third goal on assists from other Blackhawks (current and former). One of the Sedins (I forget which one) missed a Penalty Shot in the third. Both of Ovechkin’s goals were on insane dangle moves (He is on the cover of the game, and special dekes are actually called ‘Ovi Dekes’, so its not surprising). Giroux scored the GTG for a Case of Tastykakes!

We'll see how the real game plays out this weekend. This mock draft made me care more about this year's All Star game than I ever thought I would.
