Should I..

.. cancell my account?

Hah.. you'd wish..

No seriously, I've received several PM's from some certain posters that wanted me to do another series of team threads, just like I did last year. It was basily a thread about a team (the order was alphabeticly) showing their lines, stats and projections. Now I just want to know whether I should or not, since I remember some finding it pointless and since it's quite some work for me, a lazy accountant. If the postive votes come out at 65% or above it, I will give it a go and I will likely start once the biggest free agents are gone.

That would be nice. I'm much too lazy to do something involving that amount of work but if you're willing to do it, I'd read them and give you my opinions.

Absolutely. I think that'd be a great way to get us through the doldrums of summer to next years season(I hope, I hope).

Yes, all the threads were very good, and well thought out. I enjoyed reading them.

Honestly, I voted no.

I read the one you did on the Stars last time around, and thought it was well researched/thought out and informative.

But honestly, I don't think I'd want to read one of you doing the Avs (again; can't remember if I read it before). You've come leaps and bounds from where you were when you first started posting, but I still can't stand a lot of your anti-Avs prose.

And for the record, woulda voted "no" on the first (trick) question as well .

Do one for the Stars if you wish.

Leave other teams for people who watch them play.

Uhm, all of the threads featured solely stats and statistical breakdowns as well as projected depthcharts. I don't see how my supposed anti-bias towards the Colorado Avalance could've made it dissapointing to read since I barely added personal opinions.

But, I don't think I carry a massive Colorado Avalance anti-bias in the first place anyway.

Again, you cleary can't recall them. I did not include any personal opinions in the first post whatsoever, just the cold facts where you [the poster] can discuss about..

Line projections yeah.. But I don't see a huge problem if some line combinations are not 100% correct. I might add my personal expectations add the bottom, but that's it I think..

If it's hard facts (stats) from last season... yes.

If it's anything like line or statistic projections... no.

Both..

Just an in depth view on a certain team, people can express their opinions on the team just to kill the off-season.

I say no. They lost steam whenever a fanbase that wasn't represented heavily here came up. This is part of the reason why you didn't finish them all.

Actually, the reason why I didn't finish them was because I had to go on vacation, but another poster (GB) took it over and stared posting the rest for me..

Don't listen to those whiners who think you'll do a wrong representation of their teams - ****, these threads are open to debate.

They were a great read last year and I'd really enjoy them again this year.
