After seeing the NHL's terrible list, the Days of Y'Orr staff was discussing players we'd like to see get in that probably won't. 'Cause, you know, the people voting only vote for the players they've seen in NHL commercials.
Then Days of Y'Orr Twitter pal Katie Shanahan (@bruins22) gave us an idea, an idea so obvious we don't know why we didn't start this sooner. It was like a bolt of lightning hit us in the tip of the... umm... nose to paraphrase Stepbrothers.
That is when our mission started. We have a goal for this season's All-Star game. Add some toughness. Add some class. Add the NHL's purest sniper.
Our goal? Get Shawn Thornton in the All-Star game.
How can we NOT try this? We don't hide our love for Thornton here. He is the third greatest NHL player of all time. And just think about how awesome that story would be? Shawn Thornton is the heart of the Bruins. He is one guy you can point at and say he left it all on the ice every game. Thornton is also a solid human being. He entertains us every game. We need to repay him.
But that's not all. You may have noticed another Bruins name mysteriously missing from the All-Star ballot. He's a former videogame star and hates guys named Dion. He is also the Bruins MVP so far this season... behind Shawn Thornton.
We are talking about the one and only Nathan Horton. We want... no, we NEED to make this happen. And we ask for your help Bruins fans.
After the jump, we start the Thorts and Horts campaign on offense and ask for a vote for Stuchuk on the back-end.....
