Poll: What's the most frustrating time of year on this board?

So, as a fan, what time of year drives you the most nuts?

My pick is post UFA signing period because we get all the threads about how Slats is great/suck, a gazillion line-up thread, and why Payer X is the best/worst choice to play with player Y.

My second choice would be the run up to trade deadline.

UFA signing period and during camp where we get into endless disputes about line combos (and 3456846865 threads about line combos).

Hopefully now that the board is invite-only, we won't have quite as many idiots running around.

right about now... although trade deadline is bad as well... whenever you have tons of trade proposals, and signings and millions of maybe this line would work it gets frustrating.

Not sure which is worse- the crazy trade proposals at the deadline, or the boring repetition of the late summer musings.

June has been the worst month of all. Draft makes it a little easier, though.

Trade deadline.

Run up to the UFA's. I don't mind the proposal threads, but it's the fact that people tend to be blinded by the big names rather than looking for players that are best for the team.

Summer time is pretty bad.

No hockey.

A lot of kiddies coming on board.

People and their daily predictions.

Hehe, it's gotten better. But traditionally when school is out we get the teens coming on board and that usually leads to conversations that just can't go anywhere.

Though I have to admit, HF has done a good job of tightening things up around here the last few years.

Yes, hopefully that will make things much more (or at least slightly) bearable.

When the Rangers lose playoff games and posters blame the refs, the coach, opposing team players, scapegoat Rangers, global warming, Bettman etc. It's never our beloved Rangers.
