Seriously, this thread needs to be stickied.

I'll be sure to do my share of votes.

Done and done on Calgary Puck, hopefully they put forth a few more votes.

Does anyone have any clue just how many votes a write-in guy typically needs to get to be voted in?

On the first page of this thread, there are the numbers for the last all-star voting.

130k would basically guarantee him a spot.

Lidstrom was a starter in 2004 with 91,000. Problem is it's starter or nothing for Fitzy. 200K should be safe. If the Svatos for Hart thing got 50K in a few days this is almost a given so long as it gets bumped enough.

I'm in. Make sure the other players you're voting won't be competing with our Fitz.

Lets all stay committed and get a couple votes in per day. That would take, what, 2-3 minutes? Provided this thread stays active/stickied for everyone to see and keep them reminded, this plan is definitely feasible.

Nope, and that's exactly the reason why the whole system if flawed. In theory, I could get 10 friends and get any NHL player into the All-Star Game.

That means before 5 minutes ago, you sucked as a human.

I still think that they take it only from 1 IP but we will see when the results are out. I will vote for Rory cause it would be funny to see him at the ASG .

Too bad that the NHL doesnt show how many votes each player has (like, updated rankings).

The NHL would never allow it. Nice idea though.

I don't think it is fair to vote someone who is not a very good player to the all-star game. You are taking one spot away from a more deserving candidate just because you wanted to joke around.
