NHL All Star Game Mock Draft with Matt Greene

Kings defenseman was Matt Greene was the 44th overall pick back at the 2002 NHL Draft. So, he knows all about waiting around to be selected.

Right now, he’s probably half way to Pioneertown (story here). However, before he left we did a mock draft for this weekend’s NHL All Star Game.

Like the mock drafted posted earlier today with Drew Doughty, we only took one goalie, two defensemen and three forwards from the pool of available players (excluding Anze Kopitar, due to them being teammates).

Perhaps displaying a bit of the brain power he put to use at the University of North Dakota, Greene carefully thought about each selection and provided commentary along the way.

When selecting his first forward he said “I’ll take Stamkos. He scores a lot.”

Then, he started talking strategy, after noting that he already has a center he added “I’ll go with Giroux at wing.”

I then took Rick Nash, prompting him to chime in with “Ah, that was my next pick.” There was a long, long pause as he contemplated his next move. Finally, “OK, I’ll go with Patrick Sharp, he’s a shooter.”

I decided that I needed some toughness, so I went went David Backes as my final choice. Why not.

Here are the teams we ended up with…

TEAM GREENE TEAM MAYOR
G – Thomas G – Lundqvist
D – Lidstrom D – Weber
D – Green D – Keith
F – Stamkos F – Duchene
F – Giroux F – Nash
F – Sharp F – Backes

The official All Star Game Draft takes place today at 5pm PST.  Prior to the festivities getting underway I’ll be back for one final mock draft – with the only King in Raleigh, NC this weekend, Anze Kopitar.
