I think that's great! I mean, it's funny, and still somewhat tasteful. I can't imagine what didn't make it in. Well, I can, but some people are still quite creative.

I saw a sign that said "the gap in your story is bigger than the gap between your teeth".
It was a disappointing game imo.
Edmonton did not play well.
I saw very quickly last week that Jay was second with 130,000 votes

I only saw the graphic very briefly and haven't been able to find updated figures anywhere so I'm not sure if I read it correctly.
That's one heck of a leap from the nhl figures I posted upthread, so I have been questioning my eye-sight.
I was surprised Fleurry was leading the goalie votes for the east.
I'd have thought Miller or even Raycroft simply by virtue of the fact there are so many Leafs fans.
If you're going to vote again, don't forget Rory needs those write-in votes.

ETA I just gave in and checked the horribly-slow-to-load Florida Panthers official site and Jay is indeed in second place. He might even be top if he was playing for a decent team

Very surprised that Marc-Andre Fleury has the most votes for the goaltenders since Pittsburgh isn't doing that well in the standings. Maybe Ryan Miller and Martin Brodeur will be able to pass him. Glad to see that Eric Cole is playing again and is getting a fair amount of votes.

These numbers baffle me, no way should Fleury be that high. And, Kolzig? Who the hell is voting for him?

Ryan Miller deserves to be the top vote getter among goaltenders.

I have a silly question, is it only the top X votegetters that make it onto the allstar team. As in 3 forwards, 2 defence and 1 goalie for each conference?
If so, I'm going to have to keep voting.

Yoffy lifts a finger...
I believe so, ca.
I think the GM's get to vote other players in as well, but it's only the top 3,2,1 that get in on fan votes as far as I know.
If nothing else I hope there are enough votes for someone to bump Mccabe out of the line-up...as long as it isn't Kaberle of course.
