These voting results are a direct byproduct of ‘interest’, in that the Canadian fan base is rabid, and the response from most other markets is tepid, at best. I have no qualms with the all star game being a popularity contest, and I certainly don’t bother watching these things, even being a die hard Kings fan.Wish the league would put some sort of cap per team on the fan vote in though. Having 4 players from Toronto and 5 from the Canucks seems excessive. The league would likely gain more interest in the game by having representation spread a bit more among the teams.
