Battle of the Sexes Part 2: Grading the All-Star Teams: Team Lidstrom

Last night's inaugural All-Star draft answered so many questions about the strategies that each of the team captains would employ when choosing their teams.  

Overall, it became clear after a few rounds that both teams were picking players who they had connections with, however when you look back, Lidstrom and his two alternate captains ended up picking with more strategies than Team Staal.

Nick Lidstrom had to feel a bit under-appreciated considering every time Eric Staal's name was announced, the entire audience would scream in a deafening roar.  

So who would get the Sedin twins?  How many "dynamic duos" would be broken up?  Would Eric Staal pick his brother or would Lidstrom snatch up his rival captain's younger brother? 

Here is my round-by-round grading of Team Lidstrom's choices through the 18 rounds of fantasy drafting in Raleigh, North Carolina.  For an in-depth grading of Team Staal's picks, click here for Kyle Nicolas's analysis.
