The All-Star Weekend is upon us and we are enjoying the fruits of some innovative things the NHL has changed. I absolutely love the Fantasy Draft portion. Lots of heckling and decision-making from the Captains makes for a very lively event. Not to mention that it's not divided up by Conference like years past but purely on who the Captain thinks would help their team win. In any case, I will present my case for the Fantasy All-Star team but for players who have vastly outperformed their average draft position this season. I will pick six forwards, four defensemen and two goaltenders for Team A and Team B.

Check out my selections after the jump and be sure to vote on who do you think will win this weekend...
