If John Scott was good, then voting for him at all wouldn't be a story. But John Scott is bad, so watching him skyrocket to the top of the vote totals was admittedly hilarious. The All-Star Game is completely irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, and so, of course, it became the target of a joke. Scott just happened to be the punchline.

Update
shigpit:

Good. I think the whole thing is silly because the NHL got themselves burnt and now they're butthurt.

A fun game made up of people that did good things in and out of the sport would be the best "all star" game but nobody would care.
