Considering that four teams only are represented by rookies in the skills competition, we should consider ourselves "lucky" to have a player slotted in. That is, if we gave a damn about the ASG.

Great! Patty treated like the fat kid in dodgeball. Patty should just walk around during the weekend with his cup rings on. "Kiss the rings, Bitch!"

Hell no!! I'm a typical Devils fan, and this makes me mad (like everything else the NHL does)!!!! They should have kept Elias out of the ASG so that I could complain that Bettman is screwing us again.. Now he goes and give us, the worst team in the league, a player in the game while 4 other teams don't get players in the game.. How am I supposed to complain?!?!? We better get 3rd in the draft lottery to make up for this!!

Glad he's been selected but Elias has no business at this game.
Before the mob starts citing history, respect, and his career remember that this kind of stuff is based on season performance.
I don't care that he's leading blah on a bad team.
If I were those other 4 teams I'd be upset - and if another bottom dweller got in over a worthy devil in a worthy devil year this board would be crying bloody murder.

Not trying to start a beef where's there's none - but this move should temper some of the Bettman conspiracy theorists.

man it's like everyone on this board, including me, has lost their minds. the all-star game has to take someone from every team, and it's in the game's best interests to do so. they've pushed some selections on to the rookie skills team where possible, but someone from each team is going to the game.

elias has had a really good season. does he deserve the all-star game? no, he doesn't, and it sounds like he doesn't want to go. still, he started slow and has become the team's clear best player.

We're Devils fans, man! We'll find other reason's to complain and will forget this one thing that went in our favor, as we've always done.. Temper Bettman conspiracy theories? Hell no, this was his fake to make us think there is no conspiracy.. It's all part of his plan!!

Its a sad state of affairs when a marquis player making $6M of cap space has 30pts at the half-way mark and we consider that "a really good season".

Now spare me the intangibles, loyalty, history, and "heart and soul" of the Devils bit - but by season performance alone he shouldn't be anywhere near this game - and he's acknowledged it.

I don't think Langenbrunner has EVER had a season worthy of being at this game.

ITs all about what the elite are doing around the league.

Patty's a respected vet but is no longer an elite-level player.
