Before I inform everyone on what will be going on at Mile High Sticking over the next few weeks I wanted to apologize for the lack of articles of late. School often must be my main concern, unfortunately, and of late I have been bombarded by work. It should lighten up so I will return to the obsessed multiple post per day editor I was for my first month at MHS. I apologize once again and I thank everyone for MHS’s increase in traffic from February to March.
First off I want to say what a wonderful finish to the regular season we were able to witness yesterday afternoon. It was picture perfect with Adam Foote being able to play quality minutes and showing classic Footer in the OT they had to whole crowd on their feet. I also loved seeing the #ThankYouFoote hashtag all over twitter, he was the last of the Nordiques and had an awesome career. From all of us Thank you Footer you will are irreplaceable.
Now with the NHL Playoffs next on tap, starting Wednesday, I will likely get a playoff predictions article out early Wednesday. Last year I was rooting, didn’t pick them but was rooting, for Philedelphia and this year I’m putting my allegiance behind the team the Flyers play in the first round, the Buffalo Sabres.
Also by June 24th, day one of the NHL Draft, we will be posting scouting reports on some of the top players in the draft. Since the Avalanche have two picks MHS will likely be covering the top 20 prospects, Landeskog-Jensen.
Only a week after the NHL Draft comes the start of NHL Free Agency. So while we are covering the scouting reports of those top 20 prospects we will also be posting some reports on Free Agents we would like to keep an eye on, such as Tomas Vokoun, Ilya Bryzgalov, and Brooks Laich just to throw some names around.
Then before you know it we will be back to training camp, preseason, and October 7th OPENING DAY! It may seem far away but join us for the ride and it will be here before you know it!
