Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all BP'ers!
What will Santa bring to all good BP boys and girls this year?
For starters, BP'ers will wake up to the lastest version of the site software that BP uses. This means new themes and new functionality. More on this when the new version arrives.
Secondly, the plan is to install and integrate a hot smoking message board that will attract Lightning fans from near and far to come and discuss their favorite hockey team and prospects. Hopefully, little Timmy has been a good boy this year and Santa helps make the upgrade go smoothly. :-)
Hey, congratulations BP staff on getting us a fine goalie. Even I could tell the difference in goaltending tonight. Ramo just looks, so, so sure of himself. This is the perfect way for Ramo to start; he wins a 2-1 close fought game, and one can only hope that the team builds on this.
NHL Network to televise 2008 World Junior Championships
Dec 19, 2007
New York, NY -- NHL Network, the first national network dedicated entirely to hockey, today announced it has secured the exclusive U.S. rights to the International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship in Pardubice and Liberec, Czech Republic, Dec. 26, 2007 â€“ Jan. 5, 2008. The upcoming tournament marks the first time the World Junior Championship will be telecast live on NHL Network in the United States. NHL Network in the U.S. will televise live coverage of the entire medal round of the 2008 World Junior Championship, including both quarterfinal games, both semifinal contests, the bronze-medal game and the gold-medal game. All games will be televised in HD and will receive at least one primetime re-air on the network.
What gives HF? Seriously.
Look, we're long past the point of expecting anything resembling objectivity considering one of your top writers was once quoted as claiming Blair Jones was "trash" because he was a 4th round pick, but can you guys at least acknowledge that Mike Lundin (another 4th round pick, so I guess that makes him "trash" too) has made the NHL? Is that really too much to ask?
I can't access the SSB. I'm sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up with being sick and tired of the SSB crapping out all the time. Any thoughts on a message board at boltprospects?
I've seen it leading up to this the last couple of years. Everything seems to go in cycles and it may have come full circle for the bolts. They went from being a league cellar dweller to being an elite team to being a fairly good team. More so this season and last it has been very evident how much the team relies on the big three. Besides them and Prospal chipping in a bit, there isn't much other offense. I think the last year or two we've been on suicide watch for the team, hoping they can keep it together. I think this year though may be the year that we finally, unfortunately, see one or more of the top players on the team moved.

Twelve hours till game time here in Biloxi. Hope the boys decide to show up for the game tonight. Just to let you all know, I'm no hockey expert, never played the game. I only really got interested in hockey during the Sea Wolves Kelly Cup season. But I quickly got hooked on the game and I'm an avid Sea Wolves fan now.
The first two weeks down here have not been enjoyable on the hockey front. But considering what we've dealt with the last two years, even bad hockey is better than no hockey!
Some random observations...
Morgan Cey: I like him in goal. He tends to flop around in a sort of Dominic Hasek style occasionally without the Hasek flopping skills. He seems to have good vision for the shots coming his way most of the time and makes some pretty damned spectacular saves.
