Brandon Dubinsky and Dan Girardi All-Star Game Campaign

Update: Link to Brandon Dubinsky and Dan Girardi All-Star Campaign Update

With the NHL fan balloting underway there are campaigns are springing up everywhere including in our own backyard with the push to get Sean Avery into the game.  I assume that all of you are doing your part on that front, but I will remind you to keep the push going even as the publicity for it spreads and it seems you do not have to as much individually.  In that same spirit I want to remind you that while it might not seem necessary because we watch Brandon Dubinsky and Dan Girardi game in and game out and the numbers each is putting up this year, take nothing for granted in terms of their candidacies for the game.  Obviously I have written about both over the last two days and you can get those articles by clicking on their names just above.  As with any write in campaign there needs to be a concerted and consistent effort in order to achieve the goal especially when you have two players who do not get the national attention as many of the other players who they are competing against.  The Rangers are a very loyal fan-base with a wide reach and now is the time to use all of the assets available to us to on behalf of the guys who contribute the most to our success.

Everyone knows this Rangers team has been built on the idea that each night a different guy might have to step up and do the job. The two guys that have done it the most consistently so far this season and numbers truly back up and All-Star candidacy are Brandon Dubinksy and Dan Girardi. It is time we as Rangers fans reward our guys by voting them into the All-Star game this year.  I created a facebook page similarly to this as both a spread the message type thing but also a reminder to Rangers fans to assume nothing and continue to vote the maximum 30 times a day for all the guys you want in the game.
