NHL All-Star tally – one week

Sergei_BobrovskyOn Tuesday, the NHL released its first round of ballot numbers for the 2011 NHL All-Star Game. It is clearly evident that Flyers fans have come out in force to send their players to the game. Seven different Flyers players have made it into the top of each category. Four forwards made the top 20, two defensemen in the top five and a goaltender in the top five.

Mike Richards is the only one in the top 10 with Claude Giroux and Danny Briere ranking 11th and 12th, respectively. Jeff Carter rounds out the bunch at, most appropriately, No. 17.

Giroux leads all write-in votes for forwards with 54,215. The next closest is Montreal’s Tomas Plekanec, trailing Giroux by 5,466.

As far as denfensemen go, Chris Pronger and Kimmo Timonen rank third and fifth, respectively. Pronger trails the leader, Chicago’s Duncan Keith, by only 4,965 votes.

The biggest surprise of all is in the goaltenders category. The No. 1 and 2 positions are filled by goalies who were not even listed on the official ballot. Montreal’s Carey Price and Philadelphia’s Sergei Bobrovsky take the top spots through write-in votes.

As it stands right now, the six players who would be heading for Raleigh are Sidney Crosby (PIT), Alex Ovechkin (WSH), Jonathan Toews (CHI), Keith (CHI), Nicklas Lidstrom (DET) and Price (MTL).

So Philadelphia, I applaud you for getting your votes in. But as it stands right now, none of our players are in, so keep the votes coming. Vote every hour of every day, and get your friends and relatives to do it also!

Forget the site? No worries, go here to vote! And if you’re not around your computer, then text the last name of the player to 81812!

Please note that for forwards and defensemen, I have posted only the top 30. To see the entire rankings, visit the NHL’s site.
