    Hey all,

    I just thought I'd ask you all to post what you feel is your favourite thing about this web site.

    I am definitely all about the melding of different perspectives when it comes to the Senators and even hockey in general, like one big meeting of the minds and it allows me to think about certain situations in different perspectives due to all the input from all the esteemed members. Thank you cronie, clutch and heater for making this all a possibility and to DTR for all the entertainment when it comes to breaking down the night's games.

    In all seriousness, i love all the diverse opinions, and how we can discuss without arguing pointlessly(for the most part).

    I can't say enough about the people who come here and chat - there are times when I feel I share more than just hockey talk. There's some pretty in depth discussions, an intimate environment to lay everything on the line, some of the best Sens' talk on the Web. Actually, this site might have the best group of people for talking hockey. You check out Buzz and they have zero idea what's happening, it's depressing. It's always bickering and bantering between Sens fans and Habs/Leafs fans and they're always about 5 days behind us here.

    The only other forum that comes close IMO is HFBoards - and I truly find this to be a much more pleasurable place to talk hockey - or talk life. I love it here - and I'm really glad that people have come to call this their hockey forum. We have a lot of cool years to come I would imagine (and hope).

    As the site grows we may encounter the odd Troll but hopefully great members breeds more great members. I envision that regardless of our increasing numbers we remain a great place for discussion and become that much greater with increased numbers rather than more troll-ish or whatever the right word is.

    I also have to say I love the diverse backgrounds here and I can throw a question out on the forum about pretty much anything and someone usually has an answer. We have our Draft experts, our CBA experts, our Tech experts and our History and trivia experts and that is something I really like. I don't know if it's like that in other forums because I only come here and before that I went to the comment section of the Sens blogs over at HBuzz.

    oh yeah, I forgot to mention that we love how Neely appreciates how good of a two way player Spezza is and the effort that Spezza applies to his game, in practice and in each shift he plays. Smile ( I am so going to get it for this)

    Out of curiosity what do you base that statement on? Do you/ Did you go to a lot of other forums. I only ask because that's pretty high praise and I really want to know the answer :D

    Actually, I checked out a lot of forums before you invited me to join...this one checks all the boxes.

    What REALLY separates GM from the pack, though, is the superbly effective anti-troll enforcement.

    Kudos to you and all the founders/administrators.

    Of course, there is always room for improvement :D

    Absolutely agree! It's tough right now though, I would imagine over time one will lead to another etc.

    Yeah, this is the only slight I'd have against the site. It is VERY Sens-heavy, which is fine for Sens fans, but it would be good to have a balanced, league wide representation. That will come over time. This only seems to be an issue with attracting new members as they view it as a "Sens-fan" site with a lot of Sens-bias.

    Other than that, great place to talk hockey and have intelligent, rational conversation.

    I appreciate this site as it represents a smorgasbord of casual fans, rabid fans and everything in between.

    There are members who can give you stats of players who will play in the league in 5 years, there are members who can't remember who Ottawa traded for not two months ago.

    No one has a better opinion, nor does anyone have a worse or wrong opinion, becuase that's what they are, opinions.

    I enjoy the repartee, the back and forth.

    And while there certainly difference of opinions, there aren't any personal attacks or Dung.

    I look forward to coming back here every day for a long time
