BEST ALL-STAR FORMAT EVER:

All-Star Game to feature new Fantasy Draft (Adam Kimelman , 11/10/10, NHL.com)

Fantasy hockey will become reality at the 2011 All-Star Game presented by Discover.

A new format for this year's festivities will see the conference vs. conference approach replaced by a player draft, conducted by the All-Star players themselves, to determine the rosters for each team.

The 2011 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft will be Friday, Jan. 28, to kick off All-Star Weekend, which will be hosted for the first time by the Carolina Hurricanes.


Years ago, when other fantasy sports were in their infancy, in hockey leagues you could draft either Gretzky's goals or his assists, but he got treated as two players. Otherwise whoever had him automatically won.
