Poll: 3 Hurricanes make All-Star Ballot. in Hurricanes Talk Posted November 5, 2008 · Report reply Listen in to XM radio tomorrow for their "In the slot" segment with Phil Esposito. This was the exact argument they had today and Phil was disgusted that players that haven't even played this season or were injured early on were on the ballot. They said they were going to try and get a league representative on tomorrow to explain it. I'm with Espo, the All Star bid should be solely on merit and not on name or popularity contest. The way it is now feels like a exhibition game just to showcase the league rather than to award players who earned all star status. i doubt i'll be able to listen to it live.. is there any way i could listen to it later on the internet like a podcast or something?
