This is his ballot, choices, and an explanation of why he chose to vote despite the boycott by the local chapters of the PHWA.
My personal opinion is that he chose the professional course in this matter. Who knows if the outcome would have been different if he was present for the vote, but I would bet that he received some pressure from his brethren. Kudos Mr. Staple.
A reader posted up an article by Newsday's Arthur Staple that was especially dumb about the New Jersey Devils' performance since the lockout ended. I fisk the article, responding claim by claim to point out how dumb this is.
