2007 NHL All Star Game

Niedermayer, Lidstrom lead All-Star voting

NEW YORK (AP) -- Defensemen Scott Niedermayer of Anaheim and Nicklas Lidstrom of Detroit lead the All-Star balloting in the Western Conference.

Niedermayer has 329,657 votes, roughly 12,000 more than Lidstrom, according to figures released by the NHL on Wednesday. Colorado forward Joe Sakic is third with 260,397.

He's followed by San Jose center Joe Thornton (245,083), Chicago Blackhawks winger Martin Havlat (183,953), and Dallas goalie Marty Turco (226,724).

Fans will choose six Eastern Conference all-stars and six Western Conference all-stars: three forwards, two defensemen and one goaltender for each team through the NHL's Web site.

**** this all-star game, two Islanders player to choose from and they aren't even the best on the team? You think the average hockey fan in the east coast gives a shit about the west? no wonder why the NHL is doing so poorly, I wonder how many people actually vote?

It would have been more interesting if Don Cherry was invited to be one of the coaches but i guess someone didnt want him there. The only thing worth watching tonight is the target shooting i used to love it when Ray Bourque was still playing and he would brake all 4 plates in like 5 seconds.

I think VS sucks, any channel with Eddie Olychk as an announcer is in trouble

The funny thing is he also the announcer on NBC, he replaced John Davidson who now works in the Blues front office. btw the young star game last night was more interesting then this game.

no this game has a bit of pace to it, no cherrypicking either

I went to college with a Pens fan when he was their coach and he was horrible as a manager too. JD left the Rangers broadcast so what do they do? they took the Islanders analist and we are now stuck with a guy who over-analyzes everything p he acts like John Madden

Who do you think would win a North America vs the World game if they had it now? it would be very interesting... but i would still take NA and if you've noticed all the goalies besides one is from NA.

if you want passion in an NHL all-star game, then the thing to do is to go back to the OLD format. and i mean OLD format. the stanley cup champions vs. the all -stars from the rest of the league. tell me the stanley cup champs wouldnt want to win that game?
just a thought and one i think makes sense.
