It seemed very fitting that a School of Block lesson fell on the same day that Dobber and I announced our partnership and acquisition of Goalie Post. If you didn’t read the Goalie Guild's press release yet, be sure to check it out right here. And just like that, I have made the dive. I am proud to become the poolie’s newest guide to starting goaltenders and I can’t wait to take over a fully-functional platform that will now house my daily fantasy goalie analysis, advice and insight.
This is by far the most exciting step in my journey down the path of the independent goalie scout. Since I am neither tied to team nor league, I scout for the public, the common good and for anyone willing to listen and learn. And that includes fantasy goalie analysis and advice as well.
So what exactly will I bring to the Goalie Post website?
The same thing I have brought to Dobber Nation since the start of the 2007-08 season – quality, in-depth analysis on NHL goaltenders. Finally, at long last, School of Block will soon be held on a daily basis … and there are plenty of seats for everyone.
The Goalie Post mission is to provide members with flawless accuracy on daily starting goalies. Complete with updates and notes on the latest goalie news, the easy-to-read “Goalie Grid” is a staple in the fantasy hockey realm. And starting next season, it will continue to act as a tremendous resource for poolies across the globe, as it will once again be a free feature available for anyone and everyone to use.
That move is just the beginning of a transformation that will see Goalie Post become your one-stop resource for daily fantasy goalie information and advice.
Members will have access to the other quality features currently included in the annual subscription, including weekly schedule grids, team pages, and the articles, stats and archives sections as well. The most valuable premium feature will continue to be the instant e-mail updates on starting goalie changes, news, notes, injury updates, transactions and much more.
But starting next season, every single update will include my own exclusive, private “on-the-fly” insight and analysis. This will include anything from advice on nightly matchups to prophecies on future performances, and this content will not be found on Twitter or anywhere else. It is for paying members only.
So whether I think a goalie is losing or gaining value, set up for a sure-fire victory or destined for a loss, capable of getting hot or starting to freeze up, not a day will go by next season when Goalie Post members won’t receive morsels of fantasy advice and wisdom from The Goalie Guild.
Again, these enhancements are only scratching the surface of what members will receive for just $10 a year. I also plan on introducing a low-cost monthly membership fee, which will allow you to see just how valuable of a resource Goalie Post can be.
Other enhanced features will include full versions of my “new and improved” Top-100 Prospects Rankings, access to my unique NHL goalie Depth Charts with even more Alteration Marks, and all-new fantasy features for roto, points-only and keeper leagues. Live chats for members will also allow you to pick my brain on anything that’s gnawing at yours, and I’ll also host some chats for big events like the NHL Entry Draft, trade deadline, free agency and more.
Power rankings, weekly audio and written fantasy reports and much more will be included in the enhancements that members will soon be receiving on a daily basis over at Goalie Post. With this crossover, Goalie Post members will also have an opportunity to pay just a few dollars more to become a member of The Goalie Guild, which will introduce subscription-based premium features and content starting next season as well.
On the flip side, if you join The Goalie Guild, you can pay a few dollars more to become a Goalie Post member. So for just one low price per year, you can become a member of both websites and gain access to an extremely valuable amount of fantasy goalie advice and independent goalie scouting resources.
At the end of the day, I guarantee you will be loaded with more quality fantasy goalie advice than anywhere else in the world. Goaltending, as we all know, is the most important position in fantasy hockey. So put your trust in the only independent goalie scouting service in the world and let me help you school your pool!
I have been looking for a way to provide more fantasy goalie advice in a professional manner for some time, and I’m proud to say that Goalie Post will act as my vessel as I begin this journey. I am committed to teaching every member something about goaltending on a daily basis. This is a great opportunity for you to learn a lot about the position and gain valuable wisdom that will make you the best poolie you can possibly be.
Thanks for your support over the years and I hope to see you all as Goalie Post and The Goalie Guild members when next season gets underway. I am proud to be joining the Dobber Sports Network and look forward to continuing my School of Block column on here as time goes on.
