Pal Grotnes: Life Of A Journeyman Goalie

Anyone see this feature article on the IIHF website yet? Includes a lengthy interview with Norway's Pal Grotnes.

http://www.iihf.com/home-of-hockey/n...ash=18e0be17a2

I wrote it by the way

Cool article. And im not sure if the old guys will retire in the near future. Trygg (1976), Skrøder (1978), Hansen (1978) and Bastiansen (1980) will do as Tommy Jakobsen. He is 42 years old and still owning all the youngsters

Btw Mike Weber (Sabres) plays for Lørenskog

There's some cool nuggets of info in there and it was a good article, but you need to do a better job with grammatical errors next time

Canada-Norway 2-1 on home ice in 2008. That was almost one of the biggest upsets I've ever seen. Good thing Rick Nash bailed us out. I just remember thinking "who is this random nobody who's stopping 40, even 50 shots against us?"

That's when I first heard about Grotnes too! He was incredible that day!

My grammars fine in that article. If anything they edited it quite a bit from my original version.

The grammar didn't come across to me as a big issue when I read it, though there is an error in regards to the difference between your and you're.

All i'm saying is they don't just let any random person write for the IIHF. I think I am an okay writer when it comes down to it..

Yeah, that's what I was referring to. It wasn't a huge issue for me, either, but I think it's not unreasonable to expect not to have any such things in the final version of the article. Like I said, I enjoyed the article, but I guess I'm a stickler for things like these, so I thought I'd mention it. I'm not putting nabby12 down or anything, I just think it's a valid point.

It's a good article and he should be proud of it. Furthermore, any publisher bears the ultimate responsibility for proofreading the work they put out.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you get the IIHF to publish your article? I regularily visit their site, and your name didn't seem familiar, so I'm pretty sure you don't work for/with them like the other writers do. Just curious as to how you got them to agree to do so.

Good article by the way. Really interesting knowing more about Grotnes. He is a great goalie, and I had no idea he could have played for Sweden if he wanted to (providing he could make the team of course).

I've been a correspondent for them in the past but this is my first article published. I should do more for them throughout the world juniors as well as some feature pieces in the next couple of months.
