I'm in the process of setting up a new blog about hockey in Finland. I've been writing a football one over the summer and have quite enjoyed it, now I'm looking to learn a bit more about hockey and hopefully provide useful information and interesting articles. To give you an idea of what I'm aiming for, take a look at the football site:
The hockey one will be different, as I know a lot less about the sport than I do about football. I have other contributors, and am on the lookout for more, so if anybody is interested in writing something for the blog just let me know.
I will mainly be posting results, tables and stats, and hopefully links to highlights. I would very much appreciate help in finding the best sources for this information. Any other ideas or suggestions will be gratefully received.
I can't help you much with hockey in Finland, considering I live in the US, but I just want to say thanks for this football blog, it'll make following the Veikkausliiga a lot easier for me! I can read the newspapers online, but it gets a little tiring as I don't read Finnish all that well. Looking forward to the hockey blog!
The blog has moved to wordpress, and is now at http://hockeyinfinland.wordpress.com. We'll be keeping it updated as the play-offs draw on, and maybe posting a bit of Finnish perspective on the world championships. It'll be the first one I've ever seen so I'm quite curious to compare with football tournaments, but the other guys will have some actual insight.
I wonder if I might advertise the flickr photo stream, which adds photos direct from the Finnish hockey group on flickr. If you have any photos relating to Finnish hockey, however tangentially, and you wouldn't mind them being used by us, please join the flickr group and start uploading photos.
