Do our prospects read this board?

I know Filly has been on here before. If it was me, and there was a whole forum of people who spend day after day chatting online about me, I'd definitely pop in once in a while to read it.

I could see roster players not wasting their time with this stuff, but what about the prospects? They're young kids who probably spend a tonne of time online. And these boards are arguably the best one-stop-shop for info on where they stand next to some of the other team prospects, info on team injuries, what the mgmt is saying about the prospects, etc... How could you pass on that?

Anyways, what do you think? Do the prospects read these boards?

It can also be one of the worst.

If I was a prospect I would probably drop by after a good game.

Hai Niki!

I bet Lehner does. Maybe Zibanejad did.

Filatov definitely knows about us.

HF for a hockey player is like Garrioch x 10. Definitely not good.

Hell, I hope not.

The kids have enough on their plates trying to earn a roster spot, they don't need to see the neurotic rantings of someone crying about their fantasy league team, or some wiseguy blasting an 18-year-old for not making the 1st line for their NHL team.

The younger they are, the more likely they are to come here. I know of guys who checked message boards daily to see what's being written about them.

Just an opinion from me...

I would say that a lot of players not just the prospects read this blog and the other blogs similar to this.

I do NOT think they post just read.

I also think they do not take it too seriously. The coaches, GM ect they take seriously...................

I bet almost everyone in the organization (Management to players to prospects) has read this board multiple times.

My name's been discussed on forums before, I read it, especially as a young person. You take the good with the bad and you realize people hiding behind a computer can say whatever they want. There is no accountability on the internet, and they know what we say often means very little, good or bad.

Trust me, they read it. Some probably read it constantly. The older they get the more desensitized they get to it, I imagine.

If I was an NHL prospect I would stay the hell away from HF, this forum can destroy any confidence that any prospect has in a flash.
