I voted for my choices for the NHL All-Star game tonight. (C’mon, Timmy Thomas.) After I voted, I was able to take a look at the leaders. I was pretty shocked to see that the top leaders for the Eastern Conference were all Canadians. They were ahead not just by a few votes, but by thousands!
Take a look at the forward leaders:
The three Canadians listed have almost three times as many votes as Semin. (How the hell is he beating Ovechkin?)
Let’s look at the defenseman voting:
Over 100,000 more votes than the next defenseman! Something seems fishy here…
Now for the goalies:
Another vote where the Canadian has over 100,000 more votes than the next player.
I know that the game is being held in Montreal, and that it is the 100th anniversary of the team, but come on. Are all votes for Canadians being counted twice? I do know that I can keep voting and voting and voting if I want. “NHL fans will be able to vote as often as they like” according to the NHL rules.
