    Does anyone know where and how I could find archival data for this website? Feel free to move the thread in the appropriate sub-forum if needed.

    These guys know the score, but you might need to give them more specifics...

    Really depends what you're looking for. History, Prospects, and Business were spared pruning because they have a lot of information.

    The rest were wiped out in 2 different efforts to get the database shrunk down to migrate.

    If you are looking for something specific it's a lot easier to find it potentially on archive sites with a few tricks. Otherwise if it's just general old threads and such those are basically all gone except the boards I mentioned.

    I was looking for something similar to this:

    HFBoards - NHL Message Board and Forum for National Hockey League

    Only problem with the link is that it crashes when I try to get into a thread. I was mostly looking for old threads from either main board or hockey history circa 2008-2010.

    Try using the hfboards.hockeysfuture.com URL

    We used that URL for most of the time between those dates and the migration.

    I tried it, but it only offers data from 2012 onwards. Thanks for helping though :)
