Hockey Wilderness and First Round Bust are at it again, planning for the next issue for the Wild Prospect Handbook. As mentioned in a previous post, features that will show up will include:

The first issue can be found here
  • Which Wild players are playing in the WJCs?
  • A Houston Aero season update
  • Scouting reports on certain Wild prospects
  • ...and more!!

But if you want a taste of what is to come, click here to see one of our scouting reports on Matt Dumba! WildProspectHandbook20

Forget the first issue lol.

It was more of a test run, there are some editing mistakes, but the second issue, coming out in mid-December will be a much more polished product and more features. You can read the Dumba scouting report in the second link.

There will be two issues this year.

One slated for a mid-December release, the other before the draft.

Do you need a writer? I would love to try my hand on doing a little article. Nothing big of course as I'm not a native speaker, but if you need someone to write a dull article you can't be arsed to do, I'm your man.

And unwittingly offend half the readers in the process :laugh:

Why do I feel like I have gained myself a bit of a reputation? :laugh:

No, it won't be anything like that. I've been in contact with Dan about it and it's pending on his approval. I won't go into further details yet, but it's something I've been thinking of for a while. ;)

Is there a time period when we can start looking forward to this?

It is going through some final editing queries but expect it within the end of this week or the next.

It is going to be a good Christmas. I didn't think it'd be that soon. Sweeet.

Not to throw anything at you when you're so close to completion, but have you considered tossing in a "Best Tools" section? Baseball America does one for the organizational top 10's, I always find it interesting to look at. I don't know nearly enough about hockey to know how easy/hard that would be or even what categories it would entail, but here's what I'm referring to:

Even if you can't do it in time for the handbook (or you may have already thought of it and done it), it could give those at FRB or Hockey Wilderness something to do during lockout.

Extremely interested concept and probably best for the draft issue or perhaps maybe it'll be interesting to read on both HW and FRB :)
