"Hey, guys, let's start our own prospects web site". We talked to then TBL GM Jay Feaster to see if he would "recognize" us as legitimate hockey press if we started our own site, and being the tremendous human being that he is, afforded us practically the same access the beat writers had.

On my list of Hell Dwellers... Hockey's Future is not quite in the lowest cavern of Hell (UGA, Auburn, FLA Panthers), but they fall into the next lowest cavern (UT, Atlanta Thrashers, Hockey's Future, the GOP)... you get the picture....
Thanks Tim! I knew you guys had a relationship with HF, but didn't know the details.

And thanks to you, Chad and Pete for the site. My friends and I agree there isn't anywhere around to get better, more insightful, and intelligent hockey talk. The fact that it's hooked up with our favorite team is just gravy.

Default HF question leads to more than I bargained for... happily!

I'm glad I asked the question about "HF". It sure led to some interesting information that I was completely unaware of. Thanks for the transfers from HF to BP and the way they do things here. Like many others I'm grateful for the content and the maturity of the opinions expressed here, whether we agree with all of them or not.

Kudos to you.

Whatever happened to some of the posters from the old Sunshine board? They never made the trek over here or they've disappeared.

There are a lot of Sunshine posters here, though many (myself included) are under different names.

Anyone seen KC Bolt or Exterminator X?

I'm a former SSNer (same name). I was on BoltReport before that (w Chad and maybe Hawkeye?), but I don't remember what my handle was on BoltReport.

I'm also from the SSN boards. I even made it into a TV ad for the boards, lol.
