    Do you know guys if some NHL player or prospects are reading HF, or are even registered? I was wondering 'cause sometimes comments about some are a bit loud so maybe they could be blessed :shakehead ? Anyone? :D

    I think there were at one point but I doubt they'd admit to it.

    Bob McKenzie has been known to make the odd appearance.

    Although i wasn't registered with these boards at the time, i read them alot during the lockout. It was one of my main sources of information of what was going on (the press over here didn't seem to notice there wasn't a season) and it was great to have a balanced viewpoint from someone in the business who wouldn't make sensationalist claims just so people would mention their name. Cheers, Bob :clap:

    As for players and prospects reading the boards, i doubt they'd make themselves known. Can you imagine the amount of grief they'd receive if they played a bad game or had a quote taken out of context? Their PM messagebox would collapse.

    we have a bit of everything registered here. Plus not to mention that there are hundreds of "guests" daily.

    That includes players at various levels, familiy members, agents, writers, and broadcasters.

    If they wish to say who they are then it's up to them.

    I guarantee that the majority of NA prospecxts have read these boards at some point

    Ron Wilson said he reads around many message boards especially sharks and many boards refer fans to this site so I am pretty sure he has viewed these boards

    I thought I saw a post from Steve Konowalchuk a while ago. It was straight forward and honest about the AVS potential buyouts. Pretty much what you'd expect from such a class act.

    Of course i remember you. I built a statue of you in town near the main junction. Whenever the traffic lights at the junction go red, a horn is set off and people visiting the town cheer. Its a tradition i believe you started. :sarcasm:

    I know of several family members of players, and a few of the players themselves who read the boards... (at least this is true of players in the Bruins organization). They keep to themselves, however, and frankly, I don't blame them one bit. :)

    Even if Wayne Gretzky came on here and said it was Wayne Gretzky, would anyone believe him?

    A parent of a certain USA U-18 goalie recently contacted me about getting a tape of his son.

    So he must read these boards.

    No probably not, but if someone were to come and claim to be that person, the mods would verify it i'm sure. They don't want people coming on to claim to be someone who they aren't.. makes the board look bad.

    How can you do that, though? Are you going to send an email to nhlpa.com asking whether such or such poster truly is Mike Modano or something?
