NHL All-Star Game Fantasy Draft: Predicting the Top 10 Picks

The 2012 NHL All-Star weekend is just three weeks away, and the "fantasy draft" will be taking place on Thursday night, January 26.

Last year's fantasy draft, led by team captains Nick Lidstrom and Eric Staal, saw a number of unusual sights including the Sedin twins playing on different teams and Phil Kessel being chosen last overall.

Although the All-Star game team captains have yet to be announced, it would not be a stretch to see the home team's captain, Daniel Alfredsson, as one of the captains.

For the six players who have been selected as All-Star game "starters" (whatever that means), I would pick Dion Phaneuf as the other team captain.

This would create a rivalry among the two teams before they even started choosing players, on the basis of the "Battle of Ontario."

So going on that basis, let's take a look at the way that the first 10 picks might fall and who will end up on "Team Alfredsson" and "Team Phaneuf."
