i actually go on hockeybuzz all the time. it's got a ton of beat writers/bloggers on it and it's fun just to see someone throw all the crap that he hears out there.

the parts that i find funny are when he makes an outright prediction or some sort of bold statement like "Are the Canucks the only team that can beat the Capitals in a 7 game series?!?!?!" or "I predict Bill Guerin will have a 40 goal season and be named captain of the U.S. Olympic team!" or just plain stupidly hilarious like "It truly is a magical time to be a hockey fan in Belarus right now!".

He's wrong almost all the time and some of the stuff he puts out there is ridiculous, but yeah I don't understand why people actually get mad at him.
