    Why would they encourage you to vote 10 times? What the heck is the point of that?

    There is literally just a button you have to hit 9 more times once you have voted. How stupid is that?

    They then can say how many voted like it was a lot.

    This. Its pathetic. Plus you have to register online with the NHL and otherwise can't vote. I hope they allow paper ballots in the arena and in public areas of Rogers as well. Shouldn't just be people online voting.

    Somebody explain to me how both Schiefele and Wheeler are both in the ASG and Draisaitl isn't. He's ahead of both of them in scoring race and is also a bigger factor on his club respectively. The Jets have far more depth than the Oilers do. All of McD, Drai, Nuge, have to play a bigger role here because essentially they are it.

    meh. I don't watch the ASG or support how its contrived. I think on some level the omission of certain players just speaks to bias and illustrates it for all to see.

    Plus on first to the polls fan voting isn't it easier for a place like LA metro area, with more population than Western Canada to just vote in say Kopitar?

    Well my email will now surely be getting junk mail from nhl.com but I gotta support Drai.

    Thanks to the people who posted link. I never really care for all star game so dont vote but 8th in scoring needs some love

    I'll do my part and vote for Drai. The reality is that all 3 of Conmor, Drai and Nuge should be there given how much they mean to the team and how well they've done with a less than stellar supporting cast.

    Drai yes, RNH no. I love RNH, will defend him against pretty much anybody, but he should not be in this years all-star game.

    I'd have to look at the stats of everyone there, I'm sure there's at least 1 or 2 guys that he should be there over.

    NHL.com won't let me register. They're trying to keep him out of the ASG. :eek:

    I just want to see see Mcdavid-Draisaitl-Karlsson as a unit at the ASG.

    I'd rather see Draisaitl get extra days rest instead of going to the ASG lol

    ASG is 100% meaningless.

    Yeah, I'm fine with this as well. Plus I like Drai with a chip on his shoulder. I think some part of him likes the aspect of being passed over. As he's passing over almost everybody in the league on his way to excellence. Remember when we were saying things like Malkin-light or German-Kopitar. He's actually passed his star cohorts. He's on a pace that would have been in the running for Hart trophy the last 2 seasons (of course he'd place 2nd but..)

    That’d be sick.

    Karlsson then signs as a UFA.

    Check that his name is spelled exactly correct. In case he wins and they (NHopelessL) retract on a technicality.

    Last game before the break is January 22. First game after the break is February 2. He'll be getting plenty of rest.
