All-Star balloting in progress

All-Star balloting has begun! The voting, which is all electronic this year is being done by NHL.com.

Unfortunately, they're making it really hard. There's nothing on the main page advertising it. You have to sort through the "news" to get to a link to a page. From there, you have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and click on the link for "US", or "Canada", accordingly.

Thankfully, some folks have made it a little easier. Thanks to Canes All Stars you can click here to go DIRECTLY to a ballot. Canes All Stars, by the way is trying to get the word out about the Canes on the ballot, and to encourage Canes fans to vote on a daily basis.

From there, you have a pull-down menu from each box, and you MUST vote the entire ballot. You can view highlights of each player right there on that page. That part of it is cool. The part where you have to work hard just to find the ballot sucks.

Rod Brind'Amour, Eric Staal, Erik Cole and Cam Ward are all on the ballot. At the end of the ballot, you can also write-in any player in the NHL.

There's also some contest where the winner gets tickets to the game, accomodations, airfare, car rental and a chance to meet the Moose.

Vote today, and once a day every day.

Tonight, the Canes travel to our nation's Capital. Word on the street is that Cam Ward will get his first night off in a month and "Crackers" will get the nod in the pipes.

I'll be working but DVRing it.

OK, if Grahame's starting, I'm glad I'm missing this one in favor of starting the roadtrip to Wake.

If Grahame is indeed starting, I might just watch Doctor Who instead and check the score during commercials.

I should be ashamed. *hangs head* Grahame did us proud tonight. 21 saves, his first win of the season. Good for him. Good for our boys! Woo!
