Despite John Tortorella giving Sean Avery less than 10 minutes of ice time last night, our Avery All Star write-in campaign is starting to pick up steam.
Finally, an official “Vote Sean Avery – All-Star Game 2011″ Facebook page has been created. Which everyone should like by clicking here.
I’m still trying to stay on top of beat writers. Unfortunately, I’ve received no response from them and Steve Zipay at Blue Notes actually called our campaign “Silly” during his live web chat yesterday.
The NHL will release the All Star leader board next week, so if Avery is doing well I think the hype surrounding the campaign will explode.
As always, I want to thank everyone who is voting and getting out the vote for Avery.
