In today's Tampa Tribune, [url=http://www.tbo.com/sports/lightning/MGBE7QC3VSE.html]Erik Erlendsson cites Bolt Prospects[/url] as the source regarding news for goaltender [url=riku-helenius]Riku Helenius'[/url] shoulder injury. To my knowledge, this is the first time the site has ever been cited as a source by the mainstream media, so today we've taken another important step as a website. And the beauty of it is, we have our community of readers/bloggers to thank for it. Finnish community member Vsala first brought the injury to everyone's attention and member yackacack contributed the link to the Finnish website with information of the story. Then Chad went and got confirmation of the injury from the Lightning and a milestone was made. That's the beauty of a fully interactive blogging community. So, special thanks and kudos to all involved and by all means, keep blogging.
