ya im on this site all the time. i have been following this message board for about a year now, since a friend of mine showed me prosportsdaily. i had kept putting off signing up, but since the message board has slowed down a little i felt now was a good time to sign up. so here i am. couldn't be happier to be discussing the redwings with a buncha of diehards, there aren't too many wings fans in Saskatchewan.
Its great to see people join. I never know the best way to try and recruit people, and I always see that there are people checking out the forum so I'm glad you signed up (you may have seen me begging for people to join at one point or another). It would be great to see the Wings forum become super active and every poster makes a big difference.
Also, your from Mike Babcock's home town correct?
Ya Mike Babcock is from Saskatoon, he brought the Cup here two summers ago. Gordie Howe is also from Saskatoon (well a small town 15 minutes east) but you catch my drift. Hockey is king in Saskatoon. When it's -25 degrees Celsius, colder with the windchill, I am sure you can understand why.
And by -25 I was referring to yesterday.
Good lord. Thats quite chilly.
You bet. As for recruiting new members I would say just continue you on what you are doing. I have always appreciated the insight I get from members like you, SmithBlue, bailz and Spartan, which is why I ultimately decided it was time to join. The more people are made aware of the discussions that go on here and if they feel they have anything to contribute, I think more people will join.
Yeah I think the most we can do is have good discussion and hope people see that and want to join in.
Yes hockey is my number one sport. Ive been meaning to sign up for this forum, but i lost it for the last month and just started looking at it. Great site, love the rumors/news. Glad to be aboard
