I’d like to take some of your time to bore you, if that’s okay with you? This post isn’t explicitly about a piece of your favorite team’s news, but it does concern it all as a whole in terms of what you see on this site.
I was recently brought in as Editor which is something I’m really happy about, it means I get to write about my favorite team in the world and also watch over a handful of writers that are just as, if not more passionate about the team and sport than I am, and honestly what more could you ask for with that? Vanities aside, the real immediately important thing here is you, yes, the guy sat there on his computer scrolling down a couple of pages of news, hoping to find we’ve somehow magically acquired the first ten draft picks, or you, the guy sat out at a boring lunch with his phone under the table, hoping to read that the Flyers have won the Stanley Cup by sweeping the Penguins with an obscene amount of goals. You, are the people we write for and the people we want to keep interested and entertained by what we put out here, since in the end without you, we don’t have a reason to do this at all.
Now, I’m not getting sentimental here, I’m not going to start handing out free hugs and balloons, I just want to make one thing clear: Whether you’re here for statistics and cold hard facts, or here for articles that delve deep into what you hear in small snippets on other sites, we’re going to do our best to cater for all of you. For instance in the last two or so days we’ve had some fantastic, well informed articles written by some of our new staff that looked at the ongoing situation with our goalkeeping issue, and another about you, the fans. My main aim is to entertain you at the same time as informing you on the news that actually matters, so in between articles that give you updates on the latest team situations, I’ll be writing pieces that explore the team history, the loyalty for the team, and occasionally even my journey of becoming a fan of the sport and team when I’m over 5000 km’s away, and stuck in a country that doesn’t care about hockey.
What I’m saying is that if you have something to say, bad or good, tell us, shout it at us, scream it in our faces, you’re our audience and we’ll always want your feedback on if we’re doing it right.
