Considering that Eberle is only expected to miss 2-3 weeks this is an absolute travesty. If Claude Giroux was fighting an injury right now he'd still be selected. Without question.

Oh well, the All-Star game is a joke anyway and this just gives me another reason to hate the NHL.
Well 2-3 weeks would put his return right around the all-star break. I doubt the Oilers would want him to go to the all star game as his first game back only to re injure it. They remember that all too well, the last time Horcoff was useful was when he went to the All star game and hurt his shoulder.

Yes and "Someone on Twitter" is a trusted source for hockey news. I could say anything on twitter but it doesn't make it true.
