For me it's quite obvious, the season ticket thread.

Although the roster thread is always high up on the page..

Obviously should be the Rules thread

But, agreed with the above on the Season Ticket thread, because it simply has the smallest audience

The roster building thread is the single most popular thread on the forum, it will never disappear down the page.

The other forums run the risk of being demoted a page, while holding some importance for a lot of the fans.

So I vote Roster building

I wouldn't unstick the season ticket thread. Point of most of the stickies is to keep threads that would normally get bumped off the first page at the top. The roster building thread will always be on the first page anyway and doesn't contain actual news (mainly speculation) like the news and practice thread would so I vote that.

GDT/PGT, rules, NYC stuff, Around the NHL, and ticket resale are going to stay up.

Definitely roster building. It's always going to be on the front page, if not the top 5 threads anyway.

GDTs and PGTs don't need to be stickies. They won't get lost anywhere. The threads that should be stickies are the ones that would potentially be lost to the second page after a bad day of no one posting in it.

Edit - didn't see you left that out intentionally.

No option in the poll should be left out, IMO. If it had to be one, STH.

I want to change my answer to the Roster building, like everyone said that will stay near the top anyway.

I'd also merge the HFD and Prospect thread since half the time the Prospect thread is talking about Hartford anyway.

Roster building/trades has always been of the most popular threads so it probably doesn't need to be stickied.

While I don't go into the season ticket holders thread very often, I seem to recall that some of the posters there do not post frequently in other threads. If the STH thread gets buried, there's a chance those posters won't want to dig around to find it, or that a redundant thread about STH will be created instead.

The way I look at stickies is, frequent posters know where things are. The stickies operate to make the most important threads easy to find for visitors and infrequent posters.

Season ticket holders are not likely to be visitors or infrequent posters.

Well have we ever considered just having an all-encompassing "tickets" thread for sales and season ticket discussion?

I feel like it was that way a while ago and then changed because both topics were too hard to filter out.

Been tried. Posts that are for selling tickets get buried by the discussion.

To me, what it comes down to is you either take one down that might be too small for a sticky (season tickets) or you take on down that's so big it doesn't need a sticky (roster building)

Voted season tickets. Also think the minor league and prospect threads can be merged.

Here's another idea: we have the new practice/news thread which I like, but if there's a long time between games we also usually have a pre-game talk, and I don't think that needs to be two separate threads. Much of the pre-game discussion is news and notes from practice anyway.

Of course that's just for times when we have a big gap between games, but it's something to consider.
