This is an all-star game for the fans. The fans vote who THEY want to see in the game. Anybody whining is seriously missing the point of the all-star game and the voting system. You vote for you favourites and for the player who you want to see.
As long as Markov is in the starting lineup, I'm happy. At this point, he's probably our only true all-star. It would be nice to see a couple of our guys get voted in because it is in Montreal after all, but I imagine the voting will level out.

If the starting lineup was 100% HABS...there would be 14 others places on the EASTERN TEAM. And because they have to put at least one player from each team, it would mean that it will be some problems (Malkin or Crosby, Heatley or Spezza or Alfredsson, Lecavalier or St-Louis...) Wouldn't be interesting?
It's so hilarious reading the Bruins board reaction to the voting...it's cracking me up! They think we know nothing about hockey because we vote for our best players lolol...get a grip Bruins fans...you guys are voting for players like Wideman and Bergeron just say it already that you are jealous that we are totally outvoting you guys. Hilarious to read the ones living in Montreal...how the hell do you become a Bruins fan in Montreal so unreal, if you don't like it, GTFO lol. I'm cracking up.
1) My father was a Bruins fan and I watched B's games as a kid. Got a problem with that? Why don't you get the **** out. It's a free country - last time I checked, people were allowed to pick their favourite sports teams. Again, don't like it, go to another country where they force you to like something.
2) I'm not jealous of Habs fans voting for their players, I couldn't care less. Peter freaking Buzek was an All-Star once - it means nothing. However, you have to admit that the best of the best should be the starters, and that DOES NOT include Komisarek and Koivu, and it DOES NOT include Ward, Wideman, and Bergeron. See, I'm not biased.
3) If it was the other way around, I'm sure you'd be the first to complain and *****. Hell, I wouldn't even be in this thread if it wasn't for you coming to the B's board to start some **** up.
