Last Day To Vote For The 2012 NHL All-Star Game

It’s the last day to vote for the starters for the 2012 NHL All-Star Game. Unfortunately for hockey fans, Toronto and Ottawa fan boys have stuffed the ballot box which will result in hockey’s all-star game becoming a laughing stock. The leading vote getters are Kessel, Alfredsson, Spezza, Phaneuf, Eriksson and Tim Thomas.

Unfortunately for us, Project Mayhem appears not to have taken the ballot box by storm as we had hoped. There’s still time to cast your 30 all-star ballots. To troll Ottawa Senators fans, you should vote for Dany Heatley, Martin Havlat, Marian Hossa, Zdeno Chara, Chris Campoli and Ray Emery.
