Sure. And if it works out well, it's likely that in addition to the "visiting fireman" having an appropriate attitude on that point, that there's an effective mod team in place as well.

I just meant I've experienced in a practical way other well-run "official" NHL team forums, and there is clearly no inevitability to how WMB developed the last few years. As far as I'm concerned, it's on management failing to appropriately priortise (and I don't mean Falness), plain and simple.

Anyway, probably enough thread-jacking of the hello thread.

Well there are some here that post on both; myself included. The activity level and post quality on those boards don't come close to these though.

I glance at the official board every few days when I need a laugh.

On rare occasion I stumble upon a thread that's actually worth replying to.

I'm an Iron Ranger, that grew up in another awesome hockey town (So St Paul), cousins all from Warroad (Lindgrens married into the Broten family) The 1 and only true Hockey Town USA.

Combat Veteran, old school hockey.

Divorced, 2 sons, 1 in college.

About to return to school this fall.

Favorite food, hmmmm, Chinese, Thai, Italian(I'm half wop)

Hobies, gardening(helps with my PTSD), Photography, fising, motorcycles and adult league hockey

Half my warroad cousins dipped out to Winnipeg during the Nam war so I have many "dual and Nuck cuz's" can't wait to go up there for the Wild/Jets games.

Hockey fan to the core, HS, NCAA, Pro, can't get enough of it. Love watching kids navigate their way thru their young careers, i'll go to any HS game and try and spot out the ones I think will make it to the NHL.

I love the tradition of the sport, love being a Minnesotan and because of that I truely respect our Canadian neighbors. I dont think theres a state in the US that compares i the sport next to MN. Some try.

I have a "war button" (great read for the vets, and anyone wondering what a war buton is) http://www.onemarinesview.com/one_ma...litary.htmlbut mosty enjoy humor, if my posts seem "off" at times, look for the poorly translated attempt at humor, and then it may make sense.

-End rant
