All Star Ballot last man in fan voting

Recommended Posts

There's no way that Skinner is getting past the GTA machine that will vote Rielly.

I don't get how the #2 Goal scorer in the league isn't in the all-star game. I don't think he should have been in over Jack, but the 2 of them really deserve it the way this year has been. Last night showed Skinner can (at least for 1 game) carry the team without Eichel.

 

I voted my 10 yesterday, and I'll try to remember to vote every day, but this is yet another reason why I don't care that much about the all-star stuff. Ovechkin is apparently skipping the all-stars this year, so the Met division will need a new captain.

 

With Jack's injury I kind of hope he skips too, even if he's back to playing for us by then. Skinner should go in his place.

The NHL is stupid (thank you Mr. Obvious) ... why do I need to sign up in order to vote.  I don't want to sign up in order to vote for Jeff.

Probably not, but definitely not with that attitude

Relax.  You can't vote for 'your boy Matthews' anyway.

Given the constraints of the system they have chosen you're left with the choice of putting Skinner in over Tavares or Kucherov/Stamkos.  Obviously we can remove Kucherov from the discussion.  Picking between the remaining 3 is actually far more interesting that I thought it would be before looking up the stats.  Stamkos probably would have been the odd man out if they went with Skinner, but the name recognition plays a huge role there.

I hear ya. When the #2 goal scorer doesnt get to play in the All Star game, somethings wrong with the selection process. In my opinion its due to how the teams are split into 4 separate teams. Our division is stacked with great players where as it stands now, you cant really justify taking one of those players out for Skinner. But when you look at the other divisions team, you could easily find a spot for Skinner there.

Some divisions just have a larger amount of better players than others. I think they should go back to the East vs West format personally. If that was the case I think Skinner gets in.

I tweeted to the NHL last night the same idea, because as a fan what else can I do to bring that up to them?

Dude belongs in the All Star game, period

They can change the format all they want, but at the end of the day, it will remain exactly what it is: an all star game.  By definition, it's pointless.

Is it a rolling 24 hours or by calendar dates? I just tried to vote again but it says I already did...

No you're right.

You are in Buffalo, not Chicago.

I think votes reset at 11:59PM EST regardless of when you voted last.

I've been voting 9 times for Skinner and once for Marner, because he is amazing.
