Really? You don't have a "junk" e-mail address where mailing list e-mails go to die?
It's not that serious.

I mean, Carey Price is counting on your write in votes!! :ph34r:

Holy s***, Price my man, gotta sign up asap :siren:

I'm glad I'm not the only one who voted straight DRW Party on the ballot.

I normally detest a straight party ticket, but put me squarely in the raging "homer" camp as well. :)
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I'm rather steamed about Howie and Kronner both not being on the ballot. Proof again that the All Star Game is a misnomer. Were I Henrik, Pasha, Nick, Johan and Brian, I'd say "F**k you!" and take the days off; go off on vacation to some nice sunny resort somewhere. Beats spending anytime in Raleigh. Believe me, I've been there, and it sucks.


Fleury's name is on the Stanley Cup, Howie's isn't. I'm not sure what the criteria are that the NHL uses to put the voting options together, but this probably factors in.

As for the location, nothing conveys the true essence of hockey greatness like the city of Raleigh... yeah... <_<

Isn't it about time that Detroit got to host an all star game again?

I must say these players on the ballot did not have to win a primary election! I was suprised to see some of the names on there!

However, I did vote for Pav, Mule, and had to write in Howie (which I was shocked) I also voted for Drew Doughty and Ryan Getzlaf ( Love him or hate him, the guy is a house and would love to see him in the Winged Wheel). Oh yeah I voted for St Nick as well!!

The NHL is probably waiting until they get a new arena with all the talk about it recently. Kinda like the super bowl at Ford Field 4 years after it opened and the ASG at Comerica Park 5 years after it opened.

Best. Line. Ever.

(re. Dave Lozo's starting lineup picks for the ASG on NHL.com)

Nicklas Lidstrom, Red Wings -- Lidstrom doesn't age like fine wine. Fine wines age like Nicklas Lidstrom. At age 40, he's currently on pace for a 95-point season. And he's doing it while being matched against the opposition's top forwards.

Voting in all 6 Wings :P

Remember, you can vote multiple times!
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

That's just absurd, why is that possible? the most geeky/no life fanbase will win...sad thing is it's listed as a career achievement to be in the "first all star team" what a joke.

Fortunately the players picked by the fans seem to have no effect on who actually gets to the game.

However, you're confusing the mid-season All-Star Game exhibition with the post-season All-Star First and Second teams picked by the "Professional Hockey Writer's Association" (whoever they are) thanks Google. The latter, which you can see here, is considered the career achievement.

They screwed up last year with the All-Star voting. How can they possibly let a person vote multiple times. Whoever thought that was a good idea should be fired.

Well, at least thus far they aren't revealing where the voting stands. I think they learned from last year. :)

You'll be able to check the standings after the 1st week.
