The CBC is reporting that the NHL is investigating possible ballot stuffing by Montreal Canadiens fans. Fans choose the starting lineups for the all-star game by voting at NHL.com, and all six Canadiens on the ballot have huge leads in balloting for the Eastern Conference team.
It will be interesting to see what the NHL does about it. I bet nothing.
Here is the top 10 vote leaders in the East. Any thing make you suspicious?
