    Hey all,

    Wanted to say thanks for all the kind words. And thank you Matt (Ultra Mega Chychrun) for passing on the news.

    It's been hard to stay up on hockey news, but I felt today like someone shoved me in the back to say it's time to get back to reading the boards.

    A few of you met Ashleigh and know what a beautiful, sweet, big-hearted soul she was. She loved hockey and the Coyotes more than anything these past three years. We went to a lot of games, and it was always a great father-daughter experience. She could berate players, coaches, refs with the best of them.

    Ashleigh believed hockey belongs in the Valley. She saw youth hockey sign-ups increasing. She watched her cousin and his teammates develop over the years. But she also saw how expensive a sport it was and that a lot of kids were left out because of the cost. She always thought that sucked.

    In her memory, her mother and I started a GoFundMe page. In Memory of Ashleigh Fredrick
    All proceeds will go to going to Desert Hockey Development, a local non-profit in Phoenix that offers financial help to kids who want to play hockey but can't because of the cost. We're confident she'd approve.
    Again, thanks all. But it's time to get back to hockey. Cheers! :cheers:

    That's an awesome idea Marc I'm sure she approves. If you feel like checking out prospect camp Thursday or the scrimmage Friday Tori and I will have a spot saved for you :). If you need help with anything else just let me know.

    Appreciate that Matt. Thank you. I'm shooting to make it one of those days, hopefully, both.

    I really like this idea, it's a great way to honor her by helping someone else. Hockey is expensive and I hate the idea of a kid wanting to play but can't because of money. I encourage those of you here who have interacted with Marc (in person, he hooked you up with tickets, whatever) to donate whatever you can, even $5 is a worthwhile gesture in my opinion.

    Cox capping internet at 1TB a month now. Yay.

    I'm extremely unlikely to hit that, but yeah that's some ********. Google fiber needs to hurry up and get here.

    It doesn't take much HD/UHD streaming to hit that cap. They are playing the long game. Once everyone is over to 4k, 1TB will be limiting. Google has abandoned the fiber initiative and stopped expanding as far as I know, they aren't really building it out and are instead focusing on wireless.

    I'm sort of disappointed that Cox has decided to "harden" their cap recently. Before they'd just wag their finger at you the first few times. Much nicer than other providers. No longer it seems.

    The communication stated, "this will not impact 98% of customers." I read that as, "this will impact 1 in 50 customers." Seems like a lot, and they'll be charged $10 per 50 Gb above that limit. As you say, 1 Tb per month won't seem so huge in a couple years.

    Oh good. So that means they'll invest that money, along with the money they'll get from selling browsing information to advertisers, into more infrastructure and servers which will result in a much better, cheaper product!

    Thought I'd share a crappy picture of my "yotes corner" in my so called "office" (the modern term I believe is man cave). The framed and autographed pictures are Max Domi, Auston Matthews (wearing Coyotes gear :naughty:) and Christian Dvorak. Got em from various WJC tournaments. Got one with OEL too but I haven't framed it yet.

    The gofundme for Ashleigh is at $4810 of $5000. If you haven't donated yet you could help them close it out.

    The gofundme has passed $5,000 now, and still going. Great to see such a huge response.

    I feel bad for not saying anything earlier (I don't handle things like this well) but I get paid tomorrow and fully intend to help out. :)
