Think we need to join up with Flyers fans. Just saw Preds and Penguins made an alliance on twitter.

We might not get through though if we have Penguins fans and Predators fans voting against us.

Nashville Predators ‏@PredsNHL
@pghpenguins: @PredsNHL Seems our fans are open for an alliance. You game? Sounds like a great idea! #VoteRinne #VoteMalkin


Definitely voting Giroux now.

I think Giroux and Tavares would actually be a better matchup for us actually. Malkin is one of the best players in the world right now and gets attention all the time playing for the Pens. I think Tavares and Giroux are very close when it comes to popularity. You could even argue that JT is slighly more known because of the hype and being he was the 1st overall pick a few years ago.

Good point. I've been only voting for JT all day... I think Giroux is the best way to go.

I think Flyers fans are good with it too.

If we want this to happen we need to work harder than we did last round.

I was initially voting for JT and Malkin, but I've switched to Giroux.

Is it possible to vote on the iPhone?

Yeah it's possible. But, it won't be that easy to put in the captcha each time.

I'm on board with this too. When ASG voting comes along just tell me who to vote for.

I'm sorry. I need those emoticons. I was only voting Tavares but I was kidding and I am now on board with Giroux. You should check that little box next to Tavares name before you vote and join this alliance or none of us stand a chance.

Forget about any alliance, the majority of Pens fans & Flyer fans will be voting Rinne. Would you vote for a Flyer or a Pen over a Predator? I sure wouldn't. Our alliance is with Canada & the rest of the NHL. We most vote like crazy everyday because we are up against three fan bases this round. Screw Philly & Pitts, vote Tavares and only Tavares. Lets show them what Islanders fans are all about.

Vote for who you wish but I'm going with Giroux now. I just found out if I use my laptop and my computer at the same time I can do 14 votes a minute. Gonna go crank out at least 2000 before I go to bed. We are gonna get this done.

And Canada!

The truth is the only other fan bases that will be voting hardcore are the remaining 4. We may not be getting as much support as you think. If we can take even a few of the hardcore Flyer voters and make them uncheck Rinne and check Tavares that can make an big difference.

Great point. That said, I think now that the Pens and Preds are officially working together, we would be foolish to not try and get something going with Flyers fans. Maybe the promise of our votes towards their survival will inspire them to vote for JT. Even if we pick up just a small percentage of their votes, it will be worth it.

I understand the logic i just absolutely hate the Flyers... I think Malkin is a better match up for Tavares. I think Islanders fans are some of the best fans in all of sports, to be as loyal to a team that has gone through what we have gone through... I am not afraid of going up against three different fanbases. Bring it on.

Gonna go drop 1k for JT.

I understand completely. This is the first round I have voted outside of JT. But I can feel the intensity picking up and it would suck to get this far and lose. But I wont argue with your 1k votes. Keep 'em coming!
