Leaf fans seem a little peeved that Rielly didn't make it.

Mean he probably should have over Letang

When was the last time we had 2 guys headed to the ASG? 2011?

Edit: Well Sabres twitter beat me to it

Rielly is deserving.  I’m happy for Skinner.  He earned it, but so did Rielly.  Frankly Rielly should be here over Tavares.

And Monahan or Giordano should be in over Pavelski.

Lol, I like the leafs fans now claiming not to care and saying we only got Skinner in because it was the only thing we could win. Geesh they are sore losers.

With the 50 years of more or less uninterrupted practice, you'd think they'd be better at it by now.

This. I've been voting 10 times every day, but I never expected him to win. Hopefully this helps (even a little) with the contract negotiations. He's got to know the fans want him here at least. Either way it's well deserved. Part of me likes that every team gets to send someone, but it leaves guys who truly deserve it out.

I wonder if Skinner actually split the Toronto vote a bit since he's from the area.  I could also see other voters leaning towards a forward over a defenseman.

I doubt it. I'm not voting for anyone from Buffalo if they play for Toronto

I think your second point probably has legs and is correct

The Population of the Leaf Fanbase in the GTA  alone should have been enough to propel  Reilly to a victory. I blame voter apathy

I also voted every day for Skinner. I didn't think it would matter either but guess it did.😊

They're very different up there.  They know who their locals are and they very loyal, especially when it comes to guys with ties with their junior teams.

I wouldn't be surprised if at very least people who played with him likely voted for him.

Unless Loaf fans vote as well as the citizens of Broward County.  No telling how many thought Rielly was spelled S-k-i-n-n-e-r.  ;)
