If the trend continues, it looks like the starting line up is just going to be the Red Wings vs. the Canadiens, with a Flame and Canuck thrown in for good measure. Is something wrong with this picture? It sure seems so.
It was highly publicized that the NHL was looking into Canadiens fans using an auto-voting program to vote for their team to be in the All-Star game. I get that, it’s the 100 year anniversary and is being held in Montreal. The NHL vowed to go through and delete any votes that did not appear to have been cast by an actual person. But why does it seem the Stars took most of the hurt from this happening.
James Mirtle at From The Rink posted the tallies after the first day of voting, and here were the Stars numbers:
Brenden Morrow: 24,455
Mike Ribeiro: 24,074
Marty Turco: 19,296
Stephane Robidas: 18,855
Mike Modano: 14,543
Sergei Zubov: 9,061
Here are the tallies as of 7:30 this evening:
