Stuffing online polls that have no such benefit is a bit silly, as the only result is... what? Winning the poll.

Alternatively: Maybe if the Oiler fans had more team spirit they would have had more people in the All-Star Game
So... you're saying we're worse than Oiler fans because we only ballot stuff when it's a more serious event with real consequences, like sending players to a prestigious event rooted in hockey history, rather than a TSN fan poll where the biggest repercussion is TSN analysts having to figure out ways to make Eberle and Hall seem better than any other players under 25 in the league, including Crosby, Giroux, Stamkos, and Karlsson?

See how stupid it is to argue about this?

HF as a whole led the charge through the Rory Fitzpatrick voting campaign, why the hell does HF care when Oilers do the same for Hall and Ebs during a meaningless TSN poll?

Agreed, The Oilers were awesome...IN THE 80's.

Any cup win that in not within the last 20 years is irrelevant. The Sens were a dynasty back in the early in the 20's but nobody gives a **** now.

The Oilers werent an expansion team they joined they were an existing team.

This just reminded me that the Leafs are coming up on a 45-year drought without a cup. Perhaps we should go and do a "Countdown to 2017-18" thread for them.

malkin vs dats or weber maybe.

love that they put sedin vs sedin, kovalchuk vs parise, and weber vs suter in the first round.

anyways, chara's beating spezza big-time and that's A-OK with me.
