As I've only been on the Boards for a bit over a year, can anyone fill me in on this?
There were some dark times on these boards as years of Mibury abuse followed by the rebuild and Wang's tight fistedness made many a member become pessimistic and nihilistic. Some chose to depart than continue to involve themselves in such discourses.
Killer was a good member that had his fill of things and decided to lay back. As far as I know he is still a member, just not active.
Trotts was a polarizing figure and he eventually left for the Devils once he reached the tipping point.
Killer was one of the best. Always my favorite poster.
Trotts... well respected by many but an abrasive 'youknowwhat' much of the time. Just telling it like it is. He really jumped ship though? I didn't know this. Wonder if he is regretting it right about now. I myself was close to jumping on with the Devils but that was after the vote failed and I really thought the team was moving to KC, QC, Seattle, etc. Once the Brooklyn move was announced I couldn't imagine doing such a thing. If it's actually true he did that... wow. That's quite surprising.
Not pertaining to these members, but my brother used to post here by the name of Tom Liodice. Did you guys know him well?
i remember that name, he wa s agood poster from what i can recall.
Trottier was....i think polarizing is the best way to describe it. Definitely knew his ****, but the way he said it came across as 'if you had ANY idea you wouldnt be disagreeing with me'. Had a few tiffs with him over the years before he left to go to the devils. Its just the way he posted just sounded so condescending even if he didnt mean for it to come across that way. Still, would like to see him back as, like i mentioned, he definitely knew his ****.
