2005 was the best ever.
I don't recall who was exactly the weakest player of the NHL draft in 2005....there were great
and several good players produced from that crop,but...

I would appreciate to hear Vlad's opinion on this thread.

I remember my first GDT...vs Canes and Aebi's first game...ouch...lost 5-1 then I think I lost 1 more before being back for the 2 Leafs games and I was off and the team of course. Good times.

Seriously though, I bet there were tons of posters who signed up in 2002-03-04 etc., yet only the truly knowledgeable and passionate fans still remain which is why they post good material.

90% of the time I dont check who made the posts. I will bash the post. And then once in a while I read who the author is and some times....I feel remorse....nah...not realy.

2002 or 2007, it doesn't make much difference for me. Stupidity and genius have no birth or expiration date

The one thing I tend to like about new posters is that their thoughts are usually not yet colored by this community. It is only normal that in any community, some things will be repeated and begin to sound like truth that shouldn't be questioned.

This isn't to say that "new ideas and thoughts" are always great, but it's really refreshing sometimes to read what people from different circles might think.

As far as post counts and such things, I agree with the people who say these things are totally irrelevant. I look at the content first and foremost. I'm interested in specific posters too, though. I try to remember guys (which is why I hate it when people change avatars, change nicknames or have confusing generic names like 666habshigginstesticlescupin2008). I'm more likely to respect someone if I found his posts valuable in the past, so like when people help me recognize them in the long run.

Also, I don't think new guys are ruining HF. I think it's up to everyone (from the oldest posters to the most recent) to create interesting threads or to respond to interesting threads. I've noticed that controversial threads (Koivu sucks cancerous balls, The French press sacrifices babies, Gainey and Carbo are lovers) tend to get lots of responses while some more balanced and rational threads are ignored. That's our fault, everyone of us. Not just the guys who start those threads.

And I'm always glad when my name pops up in these threads but I think there are lots of deserving people who will never get much recognition. I remember when I used to post almost exclusively on the prospect board and the general board, my name kept on popping up and another guy with terrifying hockey knowledge and more accuracy than most pro scouts was often ignored (that guy was Epsilon, I don't know if he still posts at HF). I kept on thinking: "Why is this guy not given props for all the informative posts he makes?".

That's why I like the spirit of those threads but I don't take it seriously. I like a lot of posters around here. The Habs section is quirky but it's extremely passionate as well. Some of the more popular posters I think are not terribly knowledgeable while some guys who are low profile are extremely interesting and helpful.

PS: A lot of us in the "2002 crop" were actually at HF before 2002. The software changes put us at 2002 by default but we were here before the Y2K bug

That was good times. That play by Kovalev is one of my all-time favorite Hab moments.

I waited a very long time, probably a year, and then even after I signed up I didn't start posting right away. This board is a hard one to crack, for the most part I find you're just talking to yourself (because new posters tend to get ignored for a little while). Although hf is not as bad as Habsworld for that.

AD and HarryI are both extremely overrated.They have to give credit to me about
making their respective reps.Time for me to finally collect the glory here on this board.

A rookie looking for recognition? I think an initiation has to take place. So for your initiation, stay 24 hours on the Bruins board and try to keep a normal mental state of mind.

I'm not a rookie.Respect your superiors please. I'm a relatively veteran poster here.
And staying 24hrs online on the Bruins board shouldn't even be considered
as the same level as torture.It's much worse than abomination.
