Just bumping this post up to remind everyone to get ready to write-in Girardi on Monday.
Last year we were somehow able to get the most hated player in the NHL the 15th most votes for a forward with half of Rangers nation not supporting the Sean Avery All Star write-in campaign.
This year, I thought I'd make it easier on ourselves by picking Dan Girardi as our target.
When the NHL announced the All Star ballot this afternoon, somehow the heart and soul of the Rangers defense was left off the ballot while a guy like Sergie Gonchar made it.
So when voting opens on Monday, November 14th, I'm asking everyone to write-in Girardi. Despite choosing a more likable player this year, it will take another huge effort to defeat players such as Lidstrom, Pronger, Chara and Weber.
I will always say Rangers fans are the most passionate in the NHL, here's another chance to prove it.
You can either go to the voting website here or text Girardi's name to 81812. Message and data rates may apply. A mobile ballot is available on iPhone, Android and other mobile devices, using any wireless carrier.
For all the rules and regulations click here.
Obviously don't forget to vote for those Rangers who are on the ballot: Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards and Marc Staal.
Best / consistent D man. Every game I've seen (vs NYR or other team) I have not seen a better D man. Some might put up
More points but nobody is a solid as G. He got my vote!!
@thenyrblog I retweeted you, what more do you want? Blood?!? If I remember I'll put together a post when the voting opens.
I always felt that the all star game at this point should have at least one player from each team. Every teams got valid superstars that I would have no problem watching, and it would limit the amount of superstars that come from a single team.
I am so down to vote in Girardi... but Lundqvist and Gaborik deserve their shot too.
@thenyrblog There should be a name on the ballot "GAS" Line, #GabbyAnisimovStepan
