Since he’s already got his first post up, I figured now would be a good time to introduce Ryan Fancey to the network. Ryan, a St. John’s, Newfoundland native, has just been brought on as a co-lead blogger. Ryan previously wrote on his own Leafs’ blog, over at maplestirup.com, and had some great stuff over there. As we try to grow this blog, it’s great to get new faces and talent that will dramatically improve our ability to bring you consistent quality analysis of the Buds. You can follow Ryan on Twitter at twitter.com/maplestirup.
While we’re on the subject of new developments, I wanted to bring up FanSided’s new NHL mainpage, toomanymenonthesite.com. I’ve got my own column over there, The View from the Cheap Seats, which goes up every Monday, and as we get closer to the start of the season, I’ll also be providing some insight as a self-proclaimed fantasy hockey expert, although the winner of my league last year would disagree with that claim. There’s a lot of great writers working over there, 10 in all, if I’m not mistaken, and we’ve got the league covered from head to toe every week: from trade rumors and prospects to interviews, analysis and general conversation about anything relating to the ice, if you’re a hockey fan, you’ll find something there to catch your interest, so check it out.
