Sidney Crosby Leads NHL All-Star Voting

It seems that the Rory Fitzpatrick write-in campaign still hasn't affected Sidney's supremecy, plus the fact that I've voted for Sidney about 10,000 times myself. :)

From The Hockey News:

Pittsburgh phenom Sidney Crosby currently leads all NHL players in votes for the All-Star Game after the first week's results were tallied.

Crosby, who has 10 goals and 20 assists through 19 games this season, leads the league with 83,664 votes. In the Eastern Conference, he is followed by fellow second-year stud and reigning Rookie of the Year Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals with 63,921 votes.

Goaltenders Ryan Miller (63,818) and Martin Brodeur (59,386) and defenseman Brian Campbell (57,988) round out the top five for the East.

Anaheim defenseman Scott Niedermayer leads the Western Conference with 75,340 votes. Coming in second place is Niedermayer's teammate Chris Pronger, how was acquired by the Ducks in an offseason trade with Edmonton.

Anaheim is off to one of the best starts in franchise history with a conference-leading 35 points.

Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom (69,015), San Jose center Joe Thornton (64,098) and Calgary defenseman Dion Phaneuf (61,079) close out the top five for the West.

The 2007 NHL All Star Game is schedule for January 24th in Dallas.
Of course, the new system basically allows you to select a few guys on the website with one write-in vote for each conference. Brian Campbell? Yeesh...
