Well it’s been quite a summer so far, but I’m glad to say after a couple months of crazy summer work and nonsense, but I’m happy to say I’m finally settled in my new place, life is good, and we’ve even got an addition to the team here at Editor-in-Leaf. I can’t apologize enough for the lack of activity in the past couple of weeks, but with the relative inactivity and the craziness of my own summer, sometimes life can get in the way. However, with that said, there’s some solid developments being made that have me very excited for the upcoming season.
First and foremost, the FanSided NHL network has grown to being nearly fully complete. All but one of the NHL teams have a lead writer now, and most have additional writers. Our NHL mainpage, Too Many Men on the Site, has done very well this summer, and will only continue to grow. I write a weekly column over there called “View from the Cheap Seats,” that you can check out as well, for some things not Leaf-related, and inherently less depressing.
With the growing network of support for all the blogs, we had been looking for some time to add an additional blogger here at Editor-in-Leaf, and, after one failed experiment, feel that we have a very solid and reliable addition to the team. Andrew Smith will likely be putting up his first post within the next 24 hours, and I can say I honestly look forward to working with him. Andrew’s been forced to follow the Leafs as my roommate and only other hockey-crazed friend, so it won’t take him too long to get up to speed with all the nonsense that goes on in Leaf Nation. He’ll do a good job of keeping up some of the aspects of the site that I’m not as good at, and should help keep a well-lit fire under my admittedly-lazy ass.
With only a few days left ’til Kaberle’s NTC is back in effect, we should see a flurry of rumors about the movement of everyone’s favorite “veteran puck-moving defenseman.” We’ll be keeping an eye on the situation and hopefully have some good news to report in the next few days.
