I just noticed that the Hockeysfuture Kings page no longer lists DAR(E) as a writer. In fact, all that's there is an "apply today" link.

Did Dave quit?

I did in fact resign from my position with Hockey's Future.

I recently was diagnosed with a form of lymphoma. Knowing the commitment that would be required to beat the disease, I was not going to be able to dedicate the time necessary to keep the standard of quality in terms of writing and research required that readers expect and thought it best to "head-man the puck", so to speak, and allow someone more energetic to carry forward.

Hockey's Future afforded me a great opportunity that I otherwise would never have gotten and am indebted to those persons that comprise the site. I hope one day to be accepted back into the fold of the staff, but in the meantime will only be bumping around the boards from time to time.

As always, thanx for reading.

David,

I'm truly sorry to hear about your illness. I don't know you as well as some other posters here but what little I do know of you, I thought you were a friendly and a fun guy. But then again, I really don't know you.

I hope for a quick recovery and remember to keep laughter in your daily life.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Stay positive and you will beat this! Good luck.

P.S. I just finished a very interesting book by Maj. Tony Clunn MBE "In Quest of the Lost Roman Legions (Discovery the Varus Battlefield)." Happy to forward it on if you like!

Best of luck to you David.

About 10 years ago, I shared Kings tickets with someone who was diagnosed with lymphoma. I still share tickets with him. I'm sure you'll have a similar result.

Then the answer to the original heading of whether David quit is no. Hell no.
