According to Elliotte Friedman, the NHL will explore other options when it comes to the fan vote for the all-star game.
Possibilities include fans getting just a portion of the vote for captains or a list prescribed by the league that fans can choose from. Speculation is that the voting in of enforcer John Scott prompted the NHL to re-evaluate the voting process.
Scott was the top vote-getter after an online surge from fans. Scott says he will attend the game.
Friedman also noted that while there will be a meeting within the executive committee about NHL expansion on all-star weekend, there will not be a vote to determine anything further.
