Here we stand, several games into the postseason. Heroes are rising while some hopes are sadly fading. As we roll into spring embracing the best of the best, this April edition will take a final tally of the freshly finished season.
Before getting into the good stuff, a shout out to the Black Aces over in the forums is well deserved. Having NHL team threads being constantly updated is amazing - a fantastic source of rich conversation among fans and poolies alike. If you haven’t checked out the coverage section over the course of the season, it is not too late to go share your thoughts on the post-season and beyond. Same can be said about the daily Studs and Duds over the course of the season by a group of well respected writers and posters. Kudos! Thanks for your hard work and dedication through the grind of the season.
That said, DobberHockey is always looking for fresh articles, production and hidden gems. It may not be every day, but fourteen months later, aspiring writers are still getting their cup of coffee. A little dedication goes a long way – look no further than those who made the leap from the forums to the homepage (Steve Laidlaw, Tim Lucarelli, Brendan Ross, Michael Amato, Peter Harling, Ryan Goddard - plus a couple of others who have been brought on as writers of the new website, which is launching soon). The graduates list boasts many familiar names that have become regular DH writers, proving that there is a great avenue for homegrown talent.
If you want to write hockey and have something to say – make yourself heard! I am always available to bounce ideas and discuss niches or points of interest. The Roto guide is another great place to showcase your articles. So what are you waiting for? Get ‘er done!
