Video- Was It Predetermined Kessel Would Be Picked Last?

Again, any other city than Toronto, this would be a non-issue. 

I’d say some of the media is digging too deeply.

I would ordinarily tell Toronto fans to not take something like this so seriously, but considering having a player in the ASG is probably the best thing that will happen to their team this year… maybe they are taking this as seriously as they should.

I thought it was classy by Lidstrom to do something special:

When he picked Staal he made sure that, “We’re proud to select” Kessel.  That’s an important thing to say to the kid to let him know that he’s last but not least.

Are these guys serious? They’re making something out of nothing. The players had fun with it. There were jokes & friendly jabs by not taking certain players. These guys are idiots.

A better message would have been naming nobody form Toronto in the first place.

It’s the Toronto media.  If they never made a story out of nothing, they would hardly write anything.
