Hello All

I'm a Rangers fan from the UK. To be honest only glanced at the odd highlight reel and scores over past few years as could not get the TV coverage and such. Now finished my training and have a real job, got my Game centre Live, hockey news subscription and HFBoards registration. Time to get stuck in.

Anyway's that's me, I love the depth there is to supporting the NHL though I do spend a lot of time confused (not on the ice, just off the ice) so I apologise in advance for any stupid questions. Biggest thing is getting my head round trading and values as well as ownerships of prospects etc etc.

I'm sure it will become clear with time,

Nate

Nice to have a new poster here.

There are no such things as stupid questions.

If there were, I'd be stupid.

Again, welcome aboard.

I am always curious how the NHL seems to attract quite of few people from the UK. And they are usually very passionate. Welcome aboard!

It all depends where in the country you are, in some parts there isn't an ice rink for 100 miles, I'm lucky enough to live 2 minutes from my rink. So in the towns/cities that are lucky enough to have a team, they love their hockey there. If you went to Sheffield which is basically our capital of hockey, probably 8 out of 10 people you ask will have heard of the Steelers, their junior system pumps out the players year after year.

The fans certainly are passionate, I've had my fair share of abuse while officiating games

Hey, thank you all. I'm living in Norwich at moment Welshy. I do support the panthers but geography is against me just now. Did get to a lot of games between 2005-7, including a good few clashes with the Devils

Not sure why the NHL attracts so many UK fans, I have taken lots of people to games and not one has not liked it so can only see the sport growing in popularity.

Thanks again

Nate

Welcome aboard, make sure not to make your username "any prospectForPresident" because then your opinion won't be taken seriously in arguments
