Here's the voting numbers that have been deemed suspicious:
Is it possible that these results could have been achieved through a fair vote? Sure, theoretically that's a possibility. However, these instructions for cheating were posted on a Canadiens web forum, which seems to explain the absurd numbers.
Since the NHL prohibits automated voting, this looks like something that even much-maligned commissioner Gary Bettman can't screw up. Or can he? I'm not even sure what to suggest from here. Should Bettman restart the entire All-Star voting? Is there a way to eliminate only the automated votes? Can they tell how many people cheated, and how many votes are legit?
This is a tough situation for the NHL, but one thing shouldn't be tough: determining that the Canadiens fans did indeed cheat. Let's hope they don't get away with this one.
