Habs Fans Get Out The Vote

Good job, Montreal. Not only are you celebrating your centennial, you want to make sure that the All-Star Game on your home ice has your dudes in the starting lineup.

A quick snapshot of fan voting as of 11 AM PST (it literally took me an hour to get through the various screens as it seems like the servers are crashing) shows a disparate amount of votes heading towards the Montreal Canadiens. Here’s the rundown on the East:

Koivu 14453
Tanguay 12338
Kovalev 11261
Savard 7322
Bergeron 7175
Semin 5796

Markov 16611
Komisarek 13480
Chara 7781
Hamrlik 5794
Ward 5355

Price 17843
Thomas 8577
Lundqvist 2961

As for Mr. Crosby and Mr. Ovechkin? Nowhere to be seen, though I’m sure that’ll quickly change as the early voting process gives way to the general election. We’ll see which candidates have the better get-out-the-vote ground campaign…hopefully without any “Vote for Crosby” robo-calls bothering you at dinner time. (See, I’ve still got election fever!)

If you’re curious, my votes went like this:

West Forwards: Marleau, Setoguchi (part of my write-in campaign), Toews
West Defense: Boyle, Webber
West Goalie: Luongo (just for you, Alanah)

East Forwards: Lecavalier, Malkin, Vanek
East Defense: Green, Chara
East Goalie: Lundqvist
