I for one LOVE this!!!
Dobbers site imho has three things that really make it the best site out there for fnatsay (or even real) hockey:
- Best guide in the world- hands down. The only one I even bother looking at (other than a quick perusal anyways) is Mckeens. Dobbers guide has ruined others for me- I literally hate them.
- Best forums- nuff said- greatest forum community I have ever seen for any hobby/topic.
- The daily ramblings.
The last point is significant because unlike other fantasy columns you see weekly or bi-monthly, it gives you game to game analysis which can be very insightful and especially helpful in leagues with daily roster/waiver moves. Also I think you inadvertently (or advertently I guess) give perspective on players/topics you might not in a column/article format where word count might be more limited. Its almost like talking to a buddy at a pub. Only your buddy is a hockey pool genius and ensures you win a load of cash every year. I really, really enjoyed Angus' step into the ramblings world- as I feel he brings a lot more "hunch" based musings and I could be wrong here but i feel he tends to thoroughly analyse games and give his thoughts rather than the more stat or trend based insight that made dobber famous (just to clarify I know dobber absolutely watches games and gives personal opinion, and Angus does use stats I just saying the content is moreso one way or the other- 60-40 to 40-60, so to speak).
The point of that rant is just to say I am STOKED that you guys are going to step in and add your thoughts. I know praba is a witty insightful guy and GMGates has personally helped with some very big decisions on my squad so needless to say I am very enthused to have a front row seat and a chance to pick your collective brains on a daily basis!
I for one will make this the second stop of my morning internet routine- keep up the daily ramblings- good work!!!
