Battle of the bloggers: 2nd annual All-Star Game competition

Last year, Matt of DownGoesSpezza and I faced off in the All-Star Game Blogger Showdown. This year, I will be facing off against another Philadelphia blogger, this time fellow TheCheckingLine.com writer Kim. Today, we did our version of the All-Star Draft, using the same rules as Matt & I used last year.

The Draft rules:
- Our first 3 players had to be 2 fwds & 1 d-man. (We did not go by the established NHL captains)
- The first player we picked was our team captain.
- Our next 2 players were our "A's".
- All goalies had to be chosen by 10th round
- All defensemen had to be chosen by 15th round
- After all regular players were picked, we each picked our 6 rookies 

The scoring over the weekend will be determined this way: 
+1 each player, each event won in the skills competition (including +1 for 1-on-1 rounds and +1 for being part of a team win)
+1 for SOG
+2 for assist
+3 for goal / +1 for goals in "Elimination shootout" (as they count as rounds)
+1 for goalie save (including in "Elimination shootout")
+5 for MVP
+5 for winning coach pair
+3 for Mr. Irrelevant (as determined by NHL ASG Draft, not our own draft)
+5 for setting new records/events at ASG -1 for each penalty minute


Update - Player names listed below reflect their ASG team based on color - Red = Team Alfredsson; Blue = Team Chara. Bold is Mr. Irrelevant (Couture).
