Posted this in the Prospects part of the forum but wanted to get fellow Flyers fans involved in this.
For starters, however, I figured I would start a blog first to talk about various prospects who were drafted in 2010 as well as ones who have previously been drafted and are working their way through their respective systems.
I will be starting this blog on blogspot and hopefully it gets a pretty good following.
I will also be starting a podcast with my friend in the coming months but figured starting a blog would be the first baby step we would need to see how this phenomenon works out. Once we get everything settled and we find a place to record, we will get on it ASAP.
I have spoken to a numerous amount of prospects and asked if they would do interviews via the phone or skype just to talk about themselves, get their names out, how they play, where they play, how they have progressed, basically everything and anything you want to know about a prospect.
I have gotten confirmations from the following players to do interviews:
Id say it a pretty good list, but I think before we call them, I will just start the blog, send them a bunch of questions, than post it up on the blog with a scouting report on them.
But I think I might need your help a bit. I have no idea what to call this blog/podcast. I was thinking of name and best I could come up with was Prospect Pursuit. I would like to see what you guys could come up with as I know there are many creative people on here.
If you are interested in the blog/podcast, I will always be posting more details on here about various articles I will write and other things like that.
So I have finally done it. My blog is up and running.
I decided, instead of starting up my own blog from scratch, to join an existing site with more background and more connections in order to aid me in making a name for myself in the hockey world.
I have joined www.schoolyourpool.com (an HFBoards partner) in order to take my passion for hockey into something big. SchoolYourPool is a fantasy hockey website for those that are looking for help creating a great fantasy team. In order to have a great, in-depth team, you also need some solid, top-notch prospects. If you have a second, take the time to subscribe to the website.
