More on all-star balloting

The 104 players appearing on the ballot were selected by the NHL’s Hockey Operations Department. The 2007-08 season marks the 20th year in which fans will vote to determine the starting lineups for the NHL All-Star Game. Fans can vote for six Eastern Conference All-Stars and six Western Conference All-Stars: three forwards, two defensemen and one goaltender on each team. A space is provided for write-in votes for candidates not listed on the ballot.
>> press release
Here's the full list of players on the ballot.

My picks at this point
East: Crosby, Lecavalier, Alfredsson, Markov, Campbell, Lundqvist
West: Zetterberg, Iginla, Nash, Lidstrom, Phaneuf, Leclaire

I'm not sure Mike Modano's going to get many votes this season.

Alfredsson (9-10-19) over Sundin (8-13-21)?

No mention of the abolition of the write-in option. No more vote fors?

The release says that write-in ballots are allowed.

I realize he's struggled a bit so far, but Marc-Andre Fleury should be on there.

Gonchar being left off of the ballot is just insane.

James, those are your picks for ability and not popularity I assume? You really think Leclair - although deserving thus far - is going to be the starting goaltender?

Wow. Kinda surprised but I guess Vote for Rory drummed up a lot of free publicity for the league. And if you're gonna fiddle? with the votes, why not go through it again.

Why are you such a Kovy hater James? Not only is he ahead of Lecavalier and Alfredsson in points, but he's doing it with inferior linemates.

That's who I would vote for at this point.

Maybe we should start a campaign to get Leclaire in there? He's certainly been deserving.

Agreed. I hadn't realized he wasn't on there.

The league's list is rediculous! Boyle, who's on his second surgery and might not even play the rest of the season? Emery, who has also barely played this season, instead of Gerber, his teammate who's played so well? If only they set these lists after watching the season instead of just putting on those who were deserving from the year before.

You really aren't going to vote for Kovalchuk? If his back keeps him out you might be able to justify that. But if he is back and in form without missing an entire game not voting for him should be a crime...

Great point, Karina. Why is the All-Star ballot about last year?

And McCabe? For fuck sake, no.

McCabe?!?! Is this list 2 years old?

I'd say Sundin deserves a shout over Alfie if only because the latter looks like a weasel.

And what about Antropov! Remember, you can't stop him, you can only contain him.
