The Price of Success!!!

Fact: The problem with going to Game 7 of the SCF's is the bandwagon gets overrun by the casual hockey fan that perennially seeks to latch onto success!

Fact: There will be less traffic on the Oilers board this time next year when the fairweathers immigrate to the Sharks/Sabres boards.

You know who you are!!!

Indeed it has... back to the days before VBoards, the time when the late redtwilight was the wise old sage, and lowetide was but a young pup (well, maybe not that long ago, lol, but at least as far back as when he went by lain).

I think more than anything, the board gained a lot of new posters who will mature over time or lose interest... nature of the beast. And honestly, I'll put up with it every season if it means a cup run

I miss IceDragoon

I'm just thankful for posters like faneuil, rigger, Digger, lowetide, and Replacement, amongst others. They are the reason I keep coming back here. I love intelligent discussion with people who don't take everything personally. It's a real chance to talk about my favorite team with people who share my passion and who I can get info from.

I'll gladly put up with the ragers and bandwagoners for the opportunity to talk hockey with them, though some days I do get a bit frustrated.
