So get your you know what over to NHL.com and start voting for Girardi.
You can vote for Girardi 60 times a day (30 online ballot, 30 texts) through the online ballot, texting Girardi to the shortcode 81812 (Message and data rates may apply) or through the mobile ballot available on iPhone, Android and other mobile devices.
This is going to take a huge commitment from everyone, especially to overtake players such as Chara, Lidstrom, Pronger and Weber, but I know that Rangers fans are up to the task. So be ready to vote early and often.
The Girardi write-in campaign has already generated a lot of buzz on all the Rangers blogs as well as an outstanding write-up at CTWhale.com.
You can also "Like" the Dan Girardi All Star Facebook page here.
And of course don't forget to vote for the Rangers players on the ballot including Henrik Lundqvist, Brad Richards, Marian Gaborik and Marc Staal.
As a die hard rangers fan I question whether its in the teams best interest to try to take away a nice mid-season three day rest from a guy who is leading the league in average ice time. Thoughts?
Tried leaving a comment from my phone but it doesn't look like it went through... sorry if you see this twice... but anyway, do you know where one would find this "mobile ballot"? Is it something you download? I searched the Android App store but couldn't find it, and going to the NHL page just brings up the normal webpage; couldn't see a link for a mobile version or anything, and the normal version is pretty annoying to use on a phone.
Man, they really make it easy this year on the online ballet. Once you enter your players anc click vote, the vote again button brings you back to the page with all your selected players and you just need to enter the security code. I did 30 votes in less than 10 minutes!
based on last year's campaign, what was the most effective way to get your 30 votes per day in? was there a way to auto-text it or send multiple texts at once?
@CntrlScrtnzr That's a legit concern. Maybe I can talk to Torts about cutting down on Girardi's ice time leading up to the All Star game to compensate. lol
From your Android phone you go to vote.nhl.com. However, unless I'm just blind I saw NO slot for a write-in vote on the mobile site.
@erichan I have no idea. If I find out I'll let you know.
@gravey94 Agree a lot easier this year.
@traderserge You can actually vote 60x. 30 at NHL.com and 30 texts.
@druryfansince89 Ah, I see - the mobile site is awful though (impossible to log in because the stupid box keeps moving around and the keyboard keeps disappearing from the screen) and you're right that it doesn't look like you can submit a write-in vote. Guess I won't be using that after all.
