I think the All-Star Game fan voting across all sports should be eliminated. It serves no great purpose and players who don’t deserve to go to the game are taking away votes that should be going to players who should have a spot on the roster.
But with that said, since fan voting still exists, I am glad that the outcome of the John Scott fiasco turned out the way it did.
Scott did everything right leading up to the weekend. He tried to not get involved in the voting craziness that happened but when it was obvious that he was going to the game, he embraced it. Unfortunately the NHL tried to stop all of this but the fan demand was too high.
