Found November 22, 2011 on Rangers Report:
First, four of the top 10 Eastern vote-getters are from the all-star game host Ottawa Senators—Karlsson, Alfredsson (yeah, he’s having a big year), Spezza and Michalek. Second, on his first day back in uniform, Skid Crosby got 14,000 votes to vault into ninth place among forwards. Third (and this doesn’t qualify as idiocy) Dan Girardi (37,836) is second among write-in ballot vote-getters behind Tyler Seguin (41,443).

90 Votes for Girardi

The NHL usually releases the results of All Star voting every Tuesday so what worked real well last year was to get a big vote out on Mondays.So what I'm asking everyone to do is vote at least 90 times for Dan Girardi today.The best way to get around the 30 vote limit using the online ballot is to create numerous NHL profiles using multiple e-mail accounts. The easiest way to...

Dan Girardi All Star Game Campaign Continues

Tyler Seguin's Hard Work Reflected in His Increasingly Powerful, Accurate Shot

Tyler Seguin's goal on a one-timer on Wednesday night in Buffalo could trick you into believing he was born a natural sniper. But NESN's Jack Edwards pointed out that that's not the case. Instead, Seguin's increasingly powerful and accurate shot can be attributed to his hard work. If his shot continues to improve, the sky is the limit for the 19-year-old, as he already...

Bruins Mailbag: Tyler Seguin Not Bruins' MVP, But All-Star Candidacy Fair for Rising Star

The Bruins continue to rack up the wins, and the Bruins Mailbag continues to pile up the inquiries. The pace of questions has slowed a bit. That always happens when the team is doing well and there's less to wonder and fret about. But this week's mailbag was still filled with some thoughtful inquiries and I have tried to provide some equally insightful answers. As always...
