At the end of the day, it's best we don't find out. It'd ruin it for him. He should be treated like everyone else, and be able to participate in debates without worrying if people are agreeing with him simply because of who he is.

Although for the record, even if I knew it was him (and we disagreed on something), I wouldn't change my ways. Very stubborn red-head here.

First of all, It sucks being in the dark here not knowing who it is! But, it's probably for the best..
Secondly, One of my tweets made his #shinslist, Score!

Who gives a **** who Kassian is. I am a better player than him. If I was 2 feet taller and wanted to get in fights for a career I could have been a pro too apparently. What a joke. So glad we took such a high pick on a player with soo much potential.

Sorry if you see this Kassian don't beat me up haha. How about a game of pipes to settle the score?

I really don't think Kassian posts here, even the odd pacing poem dude doesn't fit the bill.

My gut tells me that he was helped with his site by the social media guys at the Wild offices. If I were running a social media department for a sports team, I'd be paying attention to *all* social media outlets.

If I saw a hilarious game day thread?

Yeah, I'd figure out a non-official Wild way of linking it out of appreciation.

Dang I was going to post my theory about Gopher being Kassian, therefore all of us are Kassian, and then the universe would cease to exist. But someone beat me to it.

I just don't think BamBam is the guy...

Kassian doesn't strike me as a dude that would write up haiku's about himself needing to be on the team. He comes across as far more level headed on twitter than that.

One easy way to tell, from a technical point of view...

A lot of the forums that I used to moderate would capture the IP of the post when the post was made...

This was how I was able to track down the girl that left her husband on my guild's forum during Burning Crusade.

She would stupidly log in and brag about how she took the kids, etc.

I simply grabbed her logged IPs, did a traceroute, matched them to the other guy that was posting (unrelated) from the SAME IP... and turned it over to David to turn over to his lawyer...

Some people are just dumb.

Well the people who have access to that info wouldn't be interested in chasing someone off the boards.

If he's here, would be hilarious if it's someone nobody thought. If not, well, it could always be somebody tweeting him links to our awesome GDT's.

Also would be a nice time to remind ourselves that people are real and what we write does actually get read by humans (even if we are Gopher clones) so probably don't want to be a vile P.O.S. when you're expressing your opinions

Good policy to have in pretty much every walk of life.

Also... A good reason why I don't read (or click a twitter link) to Hockey Wilderness.

Does this mean that someone from the Wild MIGHT have read my curse filled rants I wrote about them after various utter failures this year?

That gives me a little bit of hope.

Going to post in other teams GDTs, even if you keep things civil, just seems like a bad idea.

Why would he? I think he might just like it here. That being said, if the rumors about his depression are true, then there's the slim chance. But no, I don't think he will. I hope he settles for a reasonable cap hit, whatever it may be. I think he sees that we are a team on the rise and while his presence is important, we are not desperate for him thanks to Bulmer.

I still want to see a Bulmer - Powe - Clutterbuck 4th line though.
