Haha if this happens it will be simply amazing. We need people that are members of team boards etc. to make a thread like this on their board asap.

I remember watching Rory with Buffalo and just watching him shift to shift for some comic releif.

*Make sure you don't vote for Lindstrom/Niedermayer since they are direct competition*

I think we should rotate between Liles, Hannan, Regehr, Visnovsky, Ohlund, and ...maybe Blake. I'm guessing those 6 will get the least votes, probably in that order.

My vote is in!
We did something similar too. Forbes had an online poll, asking which NHL player (for season 2003-04) should be voted NHL MVP. It had regular star players like Martin St. Louis, Ilya Kovalchuk, Jarome Iginla... and in the midst of them all was Marek Malik. We're pretty sure he was there because he led the NHL in plus/minus, but it was funny anyways.

HFBoards got to it, and Malik got 71% of the votes.

It has to be turned into a joke so that the NHL realises the fan voting system is stupid. Hockey writers and journalists should be the ones voting, not biased fans.

Actually, I'm just going to register a .info domain for like $2 and host it on my server, then there aren't any popups or ads.

If people are actually concerned with "deserving" people making the all star game, this is the way to change it.

Hahaha this is an awesome idea. I only wish this idea had been dreamed up when Lance Pitlick was around. It would be awesome to somehow vote a guy in who is retired

Will it work though? We aren't dealing with ESPN anymore, we are dealing with the NHL ... yeah it will work.

Lol it would be ironic if he makes it, and then scores the winning goal.

You can do about twenty to thirty a minute if you do the firefox method.

Rory in the West and Belak in the East

Do it for Rory!

The only problem with this is I can picture them seeing the stats all out of whack, so they can just run a script that removes all but one vote per IP. But goodluck anyways
It's hard to say, but I doubt that this will create two votes. Even if they allow multiple votes per IP, I would be shocked if they allow multiple votes per Session ID. However, I did notice that if you hit the Back button and then hit Refresh or F5, it reloads the page with all of your selections, but it creates a new confirmation word. Then when you hit submit, it goes to the original confirmation page (the "Register to win" one). But if you just hit Submit without refreshing, you end up at a different confirmation page ("Thank you fans"), which probably means it remembers you and didn't resubmit your vote.

So use the Firefox link (http://www.nhl.com/asfb/app?service=...r&locale=en-us) and submit your selections. Then hit Back, then F5, then retype the new confirmation word and Submit again. It takes a couple of seconds longer, but I think it is much more likely that the votes will actually count.
