Public Service Announcement: Get out and Vote!!
Thanks to BoC and Jonny W (and Will) for the image
There comes a time in a hockey season when the NHL asks you to vote for who you, the fan, think are the greatest and most deserving players in the league. Yes, kids, beginning Wednesday you can vote for the 2009 NHL All-Star Team. And while I know that I am making it a personal mission for Dan Boyle to make the team (3 goals and 7 assists in 15 games with a +7. How sexy is that!), I am making another plea for you to spend one of your votes writing in Devin Setoguchi. Just as "Vote for the Gooch" says, young Devin is no Rory Fitzpartick (though I did vote for Rory...more than once). He has 7 goals and 7 assists in 15 games through the game in Phoenix (*sob*) and has a +5. While that's difficult pace to keep up, he's a young kid and has been a solid player in the time he's been with the Sharks. I believe in him and so should you. Besides, who wants to see the same old players year in and year out at the All-Star game. Vote for Seto and he might bring you a milkshake instead of ice cream because it's exactly what you wanted.
