Why the NHL is crazy
I came across a story today where Alex Ovechkin was added to the NHL all-star roster. That's strange I thought - I don't know much about hockey, but i do know that Ovechkin is one of the two best players in hockey (along with Sidney Crosby, I think). How is it that he needed to be added as a reserve. Then i learned that various voting shenanigans put four players from the host Canadians on the squad. Hey NHL, way to de-legitimize an event that had no legitimacy in the first instance. How did your sport's best player not even get voted in?
