NYI Fan Central Comments:
Scott Niedermayer played seventeen games and is handed a spot in the All-Star squad, and now the Devils do not have anyone going to the game? If Niedermayer was still in New Jersey this never would have happened.
Would not have been the worst idea to expand rosters by one more spot so all teams can be represented if something like this happens so a Zach Parise could be added and a team in first place has someone at the game.
One more tweak to Rick DiPietro and his status for the weekend will be doubt also. That all-star skills competition is a lot of work for the goaltenders.
