    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

    cheers

    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

    There's lots of Kudo's to a good forum but what does it need to do to continue to grow. How about some suggestions/ideas? Personally I'd like to see more diversity in team opinions...some more consistent and timely follow up to questions and oh ya how about getting a GM game started...... Sarcasm

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

    When the huge Canuck fan population at HB was in limbo, I think we probably should have lept at the chance. Attracting one or two fans of another team doesn't really work, I don't think. You need a community to interact.

    That's my only criticism of the site. I'm a member of a number of other fora, but pretty much all my Sens-related posting is here. I really only use HF to engage in prospect discussion, and HB for other-team discussion and the e-friends I've made there. tongue

    Found out a few days ago that I have over 17,000 posts at HB. Shocked! :oops:

    I am so pleased that our current members enjoy this forum of ours and yes, I've been actively trying to lure other fans to this site, but it is definitely a work in progress, but I won't give up.

    Thank you all for making and keeping this site hoppin' with activity and the ideas flowing constantly. Sure, I'm biased, but this is the best place to chat hockey IMHO. Smile

    IMHO the selective nature of the membership, judiciously monitored the founders/administrators, keeps the quality level a cut above.

    Members here are pretty switched on, and can have vigourous debates without insulting each other. That's exceptional.

    Great work, gang.

    Dang DTR. Flattery will get you everywhere! Wink

    Seriously though, I truly appreciate all the kind words.
    And believe me, perhaps it's just a stroke of luck that this environment has thus far (minus one visit from the "giant douche") has remained troll free.

    I will be more than proud to head up the giant douche task force to ensure there will be no repeat visits, my anti troll defense mechanisms are second to none. Laughing3
