Live All-Star Ballot Results

I know we're all tired of elections, voting and polls, but at least this one's hockey related.

When the NHL opens up balloting on Nov. 12 for this year's All Star game in Montreal on Jan. 25, fans will be able able to look at real-time results of the voting. So if your favorite player is trailing you can proceed to vote for them until your computer crashes or balloting closes on Jan. 2, whichever comes first.

Tarik's en route to the morning skate with updates to follow soon.

Well at least they're finally treating it like it is; a popularity contest. It should be interesting to see if that effects the dynamics.

Not sure how I feel about that, but hopefully we can get both Alexes and Green in there this year.

It's not EVEN a popularity contest; it's a contest of whose team has the most obsessive fans...whose fans have the absolute least going on in their lives, and who live in such a miserable place that they are able to spend their hours in front of a computer sending in votes for CROSBY, CROSBY, CROSBY, MALKIN, CROSBY....

Dave,

Booker's and Basil Hayden's are small batch bourbons. Both in the $45-50usd range for a .750, good stuff, I think someone in the Beam family distills them, but don't treat that as fact.

Agreed on your Green comments.

I think a lot of these guys believed their own hype before the season and forgot that teams are not just going to fold for them because they are young and good. Green will find his defensive game and still put up points. Clark may still be wary because of the groin. He sat out a long time and it can be difficult to get used to the speed of the NHL again. Hopefully, he breaks out of the slump or he could be done for good. The 4th line may not help him, but i think it sends the right message to the team, especially after the egg they laid in Buffalo. In my opinion, the Vancouver game is the only game they have played well all season.

So winning in Pittsburgh doesn't count as good in your book?

@Dave

A win is always good...I just don't think they played particularly well in any game except Vancouver. Defensive breakdowns- soft goals - missed shots - bad penalties- selfish play...just very inconsistent. This team notoriously starts out poorly, so I'm grateful for our record, but it is a far cry from the cohesive team that rode the BB philosophy at the end of the season into the playoffs.

I think the Vancouver game was the only "complete" game they played well....they have had periods in other games when they were horrible for one and good for the other two.....That Pitt game would fall in that category I think...

The Caps played quite good in Pitts...for one period. The Caps played really good all 60 mins against Vancouver.

@Hatfield223

Well stated and the truth.

Also, we'll see if the NHL adjusts next year. Let's see if a group of people continuously votes in some minor league slub!

This letting up a goal on the first shot faced crap has got to stop. Point fingers at the D if you want, but a chunck of the shots Theo (to a lesser degree Johnny) is letting in on a regular basis should be saves. He has got to get his sh$# together.

Crosby fans must be all giddy over the real-time results. Whoop-de-do!
