Watch NHL all-star voting as it happens

 

NHL all-star balloting begins Nov. 12 and runs through Jan. 2, and this time, for the first time in any major sport, fans will be able to follow progress of the vote in real time.

We haven’t yet seen the ballot for the game to be played Jan. 25 at the Bell Centre, but expect Canadiens defenceman Andrei Markov to be included, having been a starter last year.

Other Habs surely will be on the ballot, and fans can "write in" anyone for whom they choose they to vote.

    Goaltender Carey Price, defensemen Andrei Markov and Mike Komisarek plus forwards Saku Koivu, Alex Kovalev and Alex Tanguay – voting starts Nov. 12, everyone. Vote early and often.

    mabe i missed it , but how and when do tickets for the allstar game go on sale

  3. RGM says:

    Well, he can fill in on the ballot for Marty Brodeur, who is officially out for 3-4 months due to elbow surgery.

    Go Habs Go!

  4. Ian Cobb says:

    There is no doubt that Price is our future and he will be an allstar one day.
    But an All Star is a player that leads his position in this league year in and year out over time.

    Rob Maguire! Fancy meeting you here!

  6. The Capitalist Pig says:

    If you can add a few “coaches choices” like you can in baseball, the Breezer is indeed in!

  7. Ian Cobb says:

    Koivu, Markov, and Kovalev for sure and maybe Brisbois!

  8. Rob Maguire says:

    Last year Atlanta, as host, seemed to have a disproportionate number of their players on the ballot, so hopefully the same will happen this year for the Habs.

    We should just try and make every hab on the eastern team..that way itll truly be the 100th anniversary….
    sigh* if only that was possible

    “Dont make Kovy angry…..you wont like him when hes angry”
    CAN YOU SMELLLLLLLLL…WHAt La- RAQUE…IS…COOKING!!

  10. Number31 says:

    VOTE FOR TOM KOSTOPOULOS!!!

  11. Neil says:

    I can see the east starting line now. Koivu with Kovy and Tanguay. Markov and either Komo or Hammer . And of course Price in nets

  12. Dee says:

    My opinion.I would like to see the all star game the way it was played in the past.The Stanley cup champions against an all star team who would be picked by the fans.The way it is played now,going threw pile ons racing up the ice ect.Then they play a fun game? This new all star game was picked up from the NBA.I wonder who made that decision? who else Mr,Bettmen.I will vote for #27,#11,# 31,#8 Maybe all of them because they are all stars in my eyes.Because I love my Habs.They are the best.

    Habs fan 4 Ever & Ever Amen.

    He doesn’t look like an all star. I love having Tanguay on our team, but his play is basic hard work, and smart play. Everyone else mentioned does something extra.

  15. Number31 says:

    Yes, and Tom Kostopoulos.

  16. Ben says:

    Wanna start a write in campaign for Josh Gorges, a la Rory Fitzpatrick a few years ago?

    Gorges has been solid this year.

  17. The Professor says:

    Get Boone on it!

  18. likehoy says:

  19. JIMVINNY says:

    Price, Markov, and Kovy. Because he damn-sure deserved to be there last year.

  20. sholi2000.com says:

  21. Mike says:

    Come on Boys, I expect EVERYONE to vote NUMEROUS TIMES and get KOIVU in as a write on. KOVY PRICE AND MARKOV will be on the ballot. We need your help to get KOIVU on. He deserves and and seeing as it is in Montreal we have a good chance to get him in. I will be voting 4 times a day and hope you guys will too.

  22. 100HABS says:

    Agree Koivu deserves it. And if he keeps playing like this, he’ll be on the ballot, not just a write-on.

    ’tis the season to be jolly

  23. Sakuismyhero says:

    I agree Ill vote as much as possible for him

  24. Bahamut-Prime says:

    Definitely voting for Price and Markov but Sadly I don’t vote for people just because they’re habs so Kovy is gonna have to pick it up.
    Koivu or Tanguay might get a write in vote from me though.

  25. The Professor says:

    Ok Gorges is a good player, but an all-star? I mean I’d vote for him because I love the way he plays, but no way you can tell me he’s one of the top 6 defencemen in the Eastern Conference…

    That said, let’s start the campaign
