It isn't even like anyone of them really got snubbed. Anyone who thinks so, what's your case? Sure you can list where they are now in individual scoring, but the NHL has been planning this for a week or two now, and a few Devils have got hot to move way up in the list. Even so, with the rules in place, I can't argue that any Devil deserves to be there.

The Oilers were told today that Eberle would have been an all-star if he didn't get hurt anyway. Looking at the teams with multiple all-stars, did any Devil deserve to be there over Toews, Lupul, or Seguin. I don't think so? The only case to be made is a Devil over Kane and even then that is picking hairs. And Kane may have only got a spot because Eberle couldn't go, and his name rings out as a star.

As for the names not sounding all-star...well the NHL clearly tried a bit with Ovechkin getting a spot over Backstrom that he didn't deserve. I guess they could have selected Vanek over Pominville, but that wouldn't have been right.

We probably also got penalized by the NHL another first rounder for not having an all-star

The fewer Devils that go, the better. Those minute munchers need all the rest they can get.

Would rather have our rookies in it so they get some league exposure but no one else--neither Kovy nor Zach is having an "all star" season I think and Elias is too old to be too popular.

I for one would hate to see him leave,but what do the Devils offer him that other teams can't...meaning WHY would he not want to go to a team that has a better chance of winning a cup in the near future (3-4 years)

why would Iginla stick in calgary... Nash in Colombus... Gorges in Mtl... etc etc... some guys are loyal and i'd assume Zach to be the same... i dont think he's desperate yet... he has plenty of years in front of him

Our 3 stars have already been there done that. As a fan I'd like to see them in the skills competition. but kovy has a home being built, Zach is getting married shortly, and patty is a senior citizen so they all will enjoy the time off

Good now I finally have a reason to not watch the All Star game. Giant wankfest if you ask me.

one thing that really annoys me is no Rinne in the All-star game. IMO Rinne is the best goalie in the NHL.

Still disappointed... I like watching Devils in the All-Star game.
Most people seem to get this... but for those wondering: Every team has to be represented by at least one player in the All-Star OR the Rookies game.

Its hard to actually find the rule somewhere... I Googled it and this SportNet article came up where the writer says having all teams represented is a requirement. http://www.sportsnet...allstar_roster/

They did used to need to have a player from each team in the main all star game.

Elias is the only Devil they should have made it. But having the Sens first line starting is a travesty. The fans should NOT be allowed to vote.

meh

It's for those kinds of fans, so whatever. If they want to see their own first line up in Ottawa enough to stuff ballot boxes for them , then more power to 'em.

lol what??

the all-star game is solely for the fans... of course they should be able to vote. It should be obvious that the all star game is "represented by whoever the fans want to see", so of course they are gonna get to vote
