We all have strong opinions on here, and it's hard to play nice all the time. I called out a few newbie posters in the last year, had a few heated PM's then decided to talk it out, now we are friends and discuss things like adults.

But you know dagoon I will always hold you to a higher standard as one of the old timers round here. And I always like your take on things, and you definitely love hockey.

Seriously, I have a tear in my eye from what some have said here, so appreciated. I really feel like 13th most knowledgeable, good number.

Stinger is the poster most likely to agree with me and vice versa, he's a great pick, mia lately.

Over at least 12 drafts Edge consistently picks out some of the top players for our draft spot. Only seen him whiff a few times over 13 years of reading his stuff. He would've kicked Sather's ass as GM of this club the last 13 years.

I have an extensive hockey background as a younger man, decided to go into entertainment biz instead of hockey which seemed alot harder then (and now) to get into. But my 'knowledge', if thats what ya call it, comes from all the playing, the interest and studying of anything hockey while I was growing up. Before the internet there was Hockey Digest. My letter to the editor was published in the first issue of the 93'94 season, they picked the Icelanders to win the division and I strongly disagreed, saying the Rangers were the tops and would beat Detroit in 7 games in the Cup Finals. My first article for HF was about an expansion ECHL team. You really love hockey when you go out of your way to write about the ECHL

Smart move

But there is some tough competition. I wouldn't mind any of these nominations winning.
That's who I voted for this year. I think he's been solid, even though I don't agree with all of what he's said, he's been here to back it up with some good rationale.

SBOB is in my hall of fame, can do no wrong.

I'd definitely be near the top of that list, if not a landslide winner... mwuahaha.
Hated would be too long a list and we'd all vote for 'the other guy' instead of who we really hate, why give them the attention they crave
