I’ve gotten a few suggestions on voting for Eastern Conference defensemen, since the Canes have no nominees in that category. There are five Eastern Conference teams (Boston-Chara, Florida-Bouwmeester, Montreal-Souray, Islanders-Zhitnik, and Tampa-Boyle) that have NO goalie nominee and just one defenseman on the all-star ballot. Should Canes fans be voting for Dmen for two of those teams in hopes that fans of those teams will vote for Cam Ward for goalie? Anyone post on a Bruins, Panthers, Habs, Isles, or Bolts board that wants to weigh in on this?
Some Canes fans are writing in Dmen from our team, but the chance of someone winning on a write in are quite remote.

There’s a direct link to the English language US ballot for the 2007 NHL All-Star game, or you can use http://tinyurl.com/yzu27e. Remember to vote Brind’Amour, Cole, and Staal for Eastern conference forwards, and Ward for Eastern Conference goalie.
