Biznasty’s Fan All-Star Voting Campaign – Thanks, but no thanks

I talked to Biznasty earlier today about this campaign. Here's what he had to say.

That was Bissonnette you interviewed. We are voting for BizNasty. Completely different people.

Maybe we can get a campaign to have him do play-by-play during the game. That'd be funnier.

i agree with both this and the recent yahoo article.


the idea was funny with rory. Now it's just stupid especially since we know the NHL will just mess with the votes if he ever comes close.

It doesn't really matter if he wants to go or not. The players go to the All-Star game because attendance is mandatory, not because they want to.

Didn't he said this on his Twitter when the idea was first tossed out there?

It was promptly ignored, but I'm fairly certain he said it.

He said he wasn't interested unless the ASG was in vegas, it came across entirely as a joke to me.

From Biznasty's teammate Pyatt:

Quote:
If Pyatt had a vote, would he vote for Biznasty?

“I think I would. Just so I could watch him during the game and get a few chuckles out of it.”
Haha.

From Biznasty himself:
Quote:
“I appreciate it but nah, I’m not really into that. I kinda want to go and take a little trip (at the all star break) and kind of enjoy it.”
So, yeah, he doesn't want to go there because most NHL players don't like having to go to the ASG (a la the threaten of suspension if they don't show up).

Kind of awesome to see that both the fans and players don't like the ASG and think it's a joke. Wonder when the NHL itself will catch on to that fact.

screw him and his early reservations to Hawaii. If the fans vote him in, it's his resoponsablility to attend.

maybe we should start a campaign to elect a bunch of 4th liners from the same team in the hopes they all decline and get slugged with 1 match suspensions.

Then again maybe Bettman will call them and let them know that simply an appearance and a few interviews will be enough to avoid it.

True, but the game is supposed to be for the All-Stars in the league. He knows that.

I don't see why people are asking questions. If the fans vote, the players go. Its as simple as that. If we vote for Biz, he is going.

I'll still vote for him but Plan B is Curtis McElhinney or Dustin Boyd (Even though he doesn't suck that much, NHL might actually put him in there)

No.. god please no.

Biz or no one, but it sounds like Biz isn't interested, he'd rather party it up.

I can't imagine any non-Twitter users getting caught up in the #vote4BizNasty madness. Is Bissonnette known for anything other than being on Twitter?

If the NHL was smart they would co-opt BizNasty popularity and make him "crash" the ASG and tweet about it. Not the actual game but have him visit the locker rooms and goof around with fans.

I'd love to see him doing PBP or participating in the booth as analyst or something, that'd be so great.

This was fun when it happened with Rory.

Now it's lame and old.

If you follow his twitter it seems like he is quite for the idea now.

Plans on buying a drum set with the money you get from being voted an all-star.

It wont work, this has far less momentum than the rory campaign had.

But it's not like Biznasty has a say in this. Sorry Biz, if you get the votes you get the votes.
