Do we have a writer at Hockeybuzz?

I periodically check Eklund's site for the odd rumour or two (Dallas is among the 4 teams interested in Selanne, apparently), and I always notice along the right side there are beat writers for each NHL team, with occasional updates, etc. I never see one for Dallas though, is there even a Stars writer on the site?

Why would we want someone over there? Eklund is a liar and a fraud, and I'm happy people who write about the Stars are smart enough to realize that and not associate with that site.

I do go there often to read some of the posts to get insight into other teams, but there are just so few actual good writers who contribute to that site. When you're reading the first paragraph and have to continually stop reading and mentally insert proper punctuation then start over, it grows rather tedious.

Judging by the quality of content provided by most of the team writers, I must assume Eklund is searching for a teenager who is unable to form complete sentences, has no clue what even spell check is and has never taken any sort of grammar class. That means it's wide open to almost anyone.

But right now, no, it appears they do not have a Stars writer. I'd say you could apply, Modo, but you apparently know something or two about possessive nouns so that means you are not qualified.

Mark from ADSP wrote there for about a month. Bob Sturm also did a short blogging stint there quite a while ago. It raises questions for me though about Eklund and the way he does his business that the two most reputable Stars media members (IMO) both signed on with him and then both dropped off in short order.
