Calling All Hockey Fans!

There is a new website for you, whether you're a player or a fan -- at whatever level in either category.

There's a blog -- fans, players, writers, broadcasters -- it's there!

Chat -- each team has its own chat room, plus there are rooms for the press and general fans of The Game.

Forums -- for broader, more in-depth discussion.

Fantasy -- ah, now, this is a bit different. As I understand it, you are going to get to build your own team from all current players, using existing salaries and the existing salary cap. You will then get to "play" against another player and his team.

This particular part of the site is still under construction, but it should be ready to go very soon. I heard the last part of an interview with the site owner last night on Dan Russell's Sports Talk... I heard him mention some future plans -- like prizes for the games. I was half asleep at the time, so I'm not going to rely on what's probably a combination of faulty memory and wishful thinking. Check it out for yourself.

A Letter to the Buzzers - posted @ 12:17 PM

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a little about where the website is in it`s development and where we are going.

First off, the initial numbers are incredible.
11 million hits,
1.3 million page views!
420,000 different people have stopped by!
In only 11 days.

And that's before the blogosphere found it!
