Despite being put in goal because I couldn’t skate as a youngster, I’ve always loved hockey, so covering the NHL is a wild dream come true.

It’s been done through some lean seasons in Calgary. Don Hay and Greg Gilbert were both canned on my watch. but has had its share of ups the past few years.

Every hockey fan’s dream growing up is to either become an NHL player, or at least get to go to games for free.

Lacking the talent to be a player, I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to watch a few hundred of those games from the cheap seats since joining Randy Sportak on the Calgary Sun’s Flames beat after the lockout.

I’ve seen my fair share of interesting happenings in the Saddledome hallways over the last three seasons, some of which never made it to print. The Internet opens up a whole new space for us to blast off an opinion or two, or bring a few anecdotes to you during our long days at the rink.

Hope you enjoy.
