Patrik Elias Goes to Team Staal in the 16th Round

Posted by on January 28, 2011

The first ever NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft is complete, and the New Jersey Devils lone representative will be a member of Team Staal.


While most were predicting he’d be picked last, he went in the 16th round, before five other forwards were picked.

Here is the complete breakdown of the picks, by round:

While Patrik Elias was picked by Team Staal, there is no way I can root for a team with two Rangers and three ‘Canes on it.

I predict a huge win by a stacked Team Lidstrom: 89 – 3.
Elias will get the only goals, and the hat trick, for Team Staal.

If you think that’s a ridiculous prediction… just think about what we’re talking about here. Anything is possible.

************************************************************************************************

To honor Elias’ selection to the All-Star game, the New Jersey Devils have a special ticket offer (code: ELIAS). You can get lower-level seats (up to a $120 value) for only $26!! Pretty awesome. I just purchased $480 worth of tickets for a total of $104.

Tickets are available for the February 1st game vs Ottawa, February 4th vs Florida and February 8th vs Carolina. The offer is only good until Sunday (1/30).
