Site Milestone and Content Update

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who’s visited this site for the 25 Worst Leaf Trades.  I was hoping people would enjoy it, and when I hit 100 views I was happy.  But in the last 48 hours, thanks to avid hockey and Leafs fans from HFBoards and Pension Plan Puppets, the site has cleared 1,000 views.  Now I realize this is peanuts for big-time sites, but for someone like myself who is simply looking to share and discuss with fellow fans, that’s a thrill.

In other news, I’ve nearly finished my research for the best Leafs trades of the modern era.  It looks like it will be a Top 15 list, with a few honourable mentions.  I’m hoping the first part posted next week.  Keep your eyes on this space, and thanks again for reading!



The First Post

Hello all,

Welcome to my inner thought process.  I’ve never been much of a journal person, but I’ve decided to try my hand at sharing my thoughts online.  I’m a big hockey fan, and I love having “best of” and “worst of” about the wealth of topics that is hockey history.  Some five years ago, I published a the 15 Wost Trades in Toronto Maple Leafs history.  The blog is long since done being updated, but that article keeps getting traffic, and people are still commenting here and there.  And I’ve always had it in the back of my mind that I would love to update it.  And then my mind went to other potential topics.  What about the Best or Worst trades for other franchises?  How about all-time teams for each franchise by decades, specifically the 80s and 90s?  And there were enough topics floating around my head that I figured, why not try it again?

This is not to suggest this blog will be entirely about hockey; I’m an avid TV, especially “premium” TV like Nurse Jacky, Newsroom and the like.  I’m also a pop culture junky, constantly following music, film and technology.  As I said; this is my inner thought process shared with the world.  Hopefully some people can derive some enjoyment out of it.  Who knows; we might even get some discussions going.  I hope you enjoy your visit here, and feel free to reach out.
