2012 NHL All-Star Draft: Odds favor Scott Hartnell as last pick

Scott Hartnell isn't the prototypical All-Star.

He plays the exact opposite of what one could call a "flashy" game, he pisses people off every shift he takes, and he looks like a caveman. He isn't a poster boy. He isn't necessarily well-liked around the league. And he was picked as an All-Star at the last possible second, meaning he's, in theory, one of the least All-Stary of the All-Stars.

All of this adds up to the strong likelihood that he's picked last in tonight's 2012 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft (8 p.m., NBCSN). According to Bovada (you might know them as Bodog), Hartnell has 6/1 odds as the last pick in the draft. Jamie Benn, Jason Pominville, Logan Couture and Jordan Eberle all sit at 13/2 odds, but Hartnell sits alone at the top of the list. Or perhaps the bottom, depending on how you look at it.

Honestly, I hope Hartnell gets picked last, because he would have more fun with the Mr. Irrelevancy "honor" than anybody else in the draft. Just think about it...

On the flip side, Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen both sit at 70/1 odds to be selected with the first pick in the draft. Six other players are listed at the same mark. Full list of the odds after the jump. Claude Giroux will be picked early.
