Team Staal vs Team Lidstrom

Reading a story in the paper today about the fantasy draft tomorrow. Apparently there's an app called Team Chooser that balances out teams by player rating. Developed by a University of Toronto prof to even up teams in his pickup hockey league. They input player ratings from EA Sports NHL 11. Erics Staal with his assistanst Ryan Kesler and Mike Green while Lidstrom with Martin St. Louis and Patrick Kane. Here is how the app picked the most balanced team line-ups.
