I'm not sure about you, but if I wanted to read biased statements I'd read them here. Either my post, or someone else's.

An unbiased article, whether it be on a blog, or the habs website is always the best. Well, I guess I should say a sight that isn't the habs.
Do you really think it could be one sided? Habs fans also get very angry at their team.

Exactly! That one one medium that matters & we all bleed is the Habs... Nuff Said!

A great article from ROEN coming up tomorrow. Talking with scouts about why the Habs have trouble with big forwards + a Q & A with Cory Urquhart.

I'm very happy to be a part of HabsHQ! We have a very diverse team and I believe there will be a little something for everybody on the site. Most of the contributors are not trained journalists so the writing will not be perfect from the start, but we have a lot of potential.

And Jee, the logo is teh sex.

From time to time, would I be able to send you some of my graphic work that you could display?

Such as: http://i755.photobucket.com/albums/x...allpaper-1.png
(I know it's a little small, I made it awhile ago)

no offense, but the first article isnt very good.

you can be opiniated as much as you want, be controversial as much as you want too...

but this one is neither, it's simply a AK bash fest - more or less a mashup of what have been said in the AK threads here lately bu a few.

Count down until the team force you to change the name of the site like they did with HabsInsideOut.

Besides that, good luck. The competition is fierce, considering there are already thousands of sites dedicated to Habs out there already.

Well I look forward toit, it sounds interesting and right up my alley as I've got a gig to start scouting this year.

As I said, I think you got some real potential with your site, variety is good but if it's going to be a bashfest,I'l get bored quickly. But I'm willing to stick around and keep reading, I appreciate all of the hard work that goes into new endeavors, I imagine you's were pretty stoked about going live last night.

Don't take my comments as totally wrong, I think you guys are on the right track.

But ya, even if it does grow in popularity, the chances of them losing the domain is really is low, considering how much time had passed, how big and popular HIO was, when the Canadiens snagged their domain.

Walk before you run fellas, no one will block HabsHQ until there is significant ad money involved. Don't worry about any of this, just keep daily (x2, if you can) updates and grow your fanbase. This board is with you, and you have a good foundation, just give the material.

Like I said prior to the launch the logo is awesome. Site itself a little rough around the edges but I realize it's brand new. Will the forum section always link to here or are you guys making your own sub-forum

This is why they have different people writing the articles though. They offer different perspectives. Some may share the same opinion as you while others won't and guys even Arpon Basu has bias and it shows at times whether you want to admit it or not.

I do agree the first article was more of an Andrei bash fest but they did just get the site going. Overall it looks great the launch is a total success. Frankly less people would be talking about it if the article wasn't a bashfest haha.

Okay makes sense that they couldn't. Was just curious for that reason pretty much.

I link to HF on my site too.

Banner certainly needs some work and it makes the site look more amateur that it has to. Haven't read the content to comment on that.

Wow does Cory know you would be labeling him in something called "The Bust Chronicles"

I feel bad for him now.

I'd feel bad for him if he was confused about being labelled a bust.

The site looks good and professional, the first article sucks though so I didn't care for the rest.

Congrats

Happy that this is working out the way it is so far! Got a lot of high hopes for the site, wouldn't have partnered with Harry if I didn't.

I'll also be throwing articles up there on my own. Leafs fans perspective of the Habs, I guess

He's a very nice guy, I've been trying to capture a bit more info on european ex-pats, I had Oleg Petrov last year give me some info on how they adapt to the KHL and how conditions usually are for them.

Apparently Fred Brathwaite is a really fascinating guy to speak with about that, I have to find some time in his sched to get his perspective
