    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.

    McCabe was first with 170,000+ if memory serves.
    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

    Panthers Defenseman Jay Bouwmeester Jumps to Second Place Among Defensemen in the Eastern Conference All-Star Fan Balloting.

    More Than 6.5 Million Votes Cast To Date

    November 28, 2006

    NEW YORK (November 28, 2006) – Florida Panthers defenseman Jay Bouwmeester jumped into second place among defensemen in the Eastern Conference All-Star Game Fan Balloting with 132,570 votes. Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby holds the top spot among Eastern Conference vote-getters with 247,854 votes in COLD-fX/NHL All-Star Fan Balloting, Presented by 2K Sports. The top two defensemen, top three forwards and top one goaltender will start for the Eastern Conference in the 2007 NHL All-Star Game, which will be played on Wednesday, Jan. 24, in Dallas (8 p.m. ET, VERSUS, CBC, RDS, NASN, NHL Radio). To date, more than 6.5 million votes have been cast in the first 12 days of the all-digital voting program, surpassing total voting results in the entire 2003-04 voting period by approximately 10 percent.


    Fans can vote for six Eastern Conference All-Stars and six Western Conference All-Stars: three forwards, two defensemen and one goaltender for each team. If a player is not listed on the ballot, a space is provided for write-in votes. The three forwards, two defensemen and one goaltender from each Conference receiving the most votes will comprise the starting lineups. Each of the 30 NHL Clubs has at least two representatives on the ballot.

    The leading vote-getters by position are forwards Crosby, his Penguins teammate Evgeni Malkin (156,469) and Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals (112,501); defensemen Bryan McCabe of the Buffalo Sabres (174,205) and Bouwmeester of the Florida Panthers (132,570); and Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury (138,151).

    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.

    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.
