And we were so, so close to having the full starting line-up. Alfie, Spezza and Michalek all blew past Kessel to take the 3 forward positions. Karlsson took the overall top position with just under 940,000 votes.
The only one left out was Gonchar - who ended up just over 11,000 behind Dion Phaneuf for the 2nd defense position.
Tim Thomas took the goalie spot.
