Appreciate all the patience, folks. "The Next Ones" hasn't been able to be updated as much as normal...as I mentioned in other thread:
I normally try and address each and every comment, but unfortunately my community was one of those first affect in Calgary with the flooding...
Luckily, after 3 days no power and totally disconnected (internet, phones, TV, etc.) we're (upper part of my neighbourhood) semi back to normal. My house escaped unscathed but many neighbours were not so lucky.
This couldn't have come at a worst time for hockey coverage, given my passion for the draft, but what can ya do.
Like the Guess Who once said: "Cause it's the new Mother Nature taking over..."
We just have to be resilient and come back better and stronger than ever.
Glad to here you're okay. I always enjoy your write-ups.
Really looking forward to the draft this year.
Thanks VKW - really appreciate it - as much as I worry about everything else, in the back of my mind the draft is always there...this is the week when I put out a ton of material and just when I was starting to catch up on stuff I was clueing up on, this all happens. What can we do. Frustrating, but out of our control...
Thanks for the write up on Morrissey; Calgarian born and the lot of us believe Calgary should draft him with one of our late picks (given still available).
Given I'm based in Calgary and have followed Morrissey with a little extra focus, if he lasts until Flames' 2nd 1st rnder (not sure he does) and they select him, I will be quite pleased, if I may say so.
