Who? What? Huh? ... yeah. Um.

Wednesday, November 29, 2006
With the possibly permanent hiatus being taken by Predsguy over at Predspage, I find myself a little antsy at the sudden lack of any real blogs for three particular teams in the league. More so because two of those teams are also members of the Central Division. In no particular order ...

Blackhawks - Come on, people. There has to be at least one blogger out there that covers and follows the Blackhawks, despite the way that Billy Wirtz has just about buried this team in a mile deep grave. This team has such a long and storied history, it's a depressing surprise that there isn't a single blog out there on them. It also makes talking about them during game time depressing; I have no one to rib!

Predators - I think what surprises me the most is that it was only Predsguy who I knew of that wrote about the Predators, considering how they've been moderately successful over the past three seasons now (this one included). And now that he's gone, I'm even more concerned. Is it really that dead in Nashville? I know that James Mirtle has a link to a forum-based blog by the Predators themselves it seems, but it isn't really the same.

Coyotes - Yeah. The 'Yotes. I guess I can't really blame the lack of a blog for this team on anything in particular. Even so, there must be someone out there that writes about this team and follows them. Anyone? ... anyone? ... Bueller? ... Bueller?

In any event, I also just wanted to thank the recent string of a few people who added me to their blogrolls. Every new link definitely means a lot, since it gives me even more to read when I manage to squeak in some free time amidst new jobs and bucketloads of classwork. Incidentally, if I ever improperly put down someone's blog's name? Feel free to let me know and I'll fix it post-haste. As it stands, I get that often enough: "The Army of Ohio", "Army of Ohio", and so on (I take full responsibility for the name being "armyofohio" in the URL, but that was just so it wouldn't be pointlessly long).

Don't blame me, though, for the rather broken English name: Army of the Ohio. Blame those geniuses back during the 19th century and the American Civil War, since the name is based off of the real Army of the Ohio.

    Casonblog highlights the 'Yotes from time to time, being out in the area.

    Though I suppose he's still technically a 'Canes blogger.

    With Dennis Savard coming home to coach the team, there has to be someone out there excited enough to run a Hawks blog.

    I just googled "Bill Wirtz" and the first page listed is Classic.

    Any chance you can throw me a link? I run a Flyers blog at

    When I lived in Chicago before the age of blogs, there was a very funny item called The Bluelines that was published and sold for each home game. It was partly a program, but mostly a satirical comment on the Blackhawks. It was great and very popular, so popular that Wirtz went to court to have it stopped.

    Hey Mike: Couldn't find your contact info on the page (sorry if I just overlooked it, wouldn't normally leave it in here...

    Just wanted to let you know that I added your AotO blog to my general blog roll(central division)on, as well as the Columbus War Room (inside the hockey report).
    Keep up your great work!

    Drew - Yeah, I'm trying to avoid 'double dipper' blogs right now, just for some more variety (unless they're multi-person, like Battle of Alberta). :D I won't be removing anyone who I already have in two team spots, though.

    Matt - Thanks for reminding me! I saw you added me, and I just added you back this morning. :D Here's hoping Savard can draw some interest from people.

    TS - So it was all done by a bunch of devoted fans, then? That sounds awesome. ... and depressing that Wirtz yet again shows why he needs to be shown the door somehow by the NHL.

    War Room - I'm working on trying to make this blog easier to navigate, and have my contact info. Hopefully that'll be taken care of soon.

    Thanks for adding me to your Hockey Report site, too. I've put it up with the general listing here, as well.

    Surprisingly enough, there is a Coyotes blog out there...

    You gotta give props to someone who can stomach watching that crew night in, night out. Perhaps writing about it is his coping mechanism...

    This is Matthew Perioli, writer of "The Blackhawk Experience", which is part of the Most Valuable Network. I wanted to thank you for adding a link to my blog here. This blog is really one of the better hockey ones out there, and I make it a point to read it frequently. Yes, there is at least *one* Blackhawks blog out there!
