Story Lines 

For a non-competitive game, this All Star Game has a few fun story lines. Teammates are pitted against each other for the first time in many cases.
Letang vs. Fleury will be an exciting matchup for Pens fans to watch. You know that Flower will be doing some trash talking.

Former teammates reunited and it feels so good...
Current Blackhawks Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, and Duncan Keith will be playing on Team Lidstrom with former teammates, Dustin Byfuglien and Martin Havlat. 
Dallas Stars forward, Brad Richards will also be reunited with former longtime teammate Martin St. Louis. Those two played together in Tampa Bay from 2000-2008.

Separated at Birth.... (errrr, I mean) Draft.
Vancouver Canucks forwards Henrik and Daniel Sedin will be playing on separate teams for the first time since the womb.

Mr. Irrelevant 
Phil Kessel was picked last overall... but it wasn't all bad news for Kessel as he received a Honda car and $20,000 for his favorite charity... I wonder if Brian Burke will trade the Honda for draft picks?
