“From the “credit where credit is due” department, The New York Rangers Blog is the driving force behind the Sean Avery write-in (e-ballot box stuffing) campaign, and Avery is up to 20th among forwards with, at last count, some 64,000 type-in votes.
That’s not going to be enough, not when the top guys are all in six figures, approaching or above 200,000. He’s second among write-in forwards behind Claude Giroux, who has almost 148,000. But it is still pretty impressive for a guy who’s spent most of his time on the fourth line and is pretty well, um, disliked around the league.”
…my thanks to Carp for the plug.
Really starting to pick up steam as there was numerous mentions of Avery’s ascention in the All Star balloting yesterday.
The campaign has even gone global as a Swedish media outlet basically called the Sedin twins a national disgrace because they are behind Avery in voting…
“Even worse, it is for twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin. Despite scientific progress during the season, and Henrik Sedin are the NHL’s reigning king of points, they are placed on the 23 th (Henry) and 24th place (Daniel) – with a player like Sean Avery in front of him.“
To vote for Avery go to NHL.com or text “Sean Avery” to 81812.
