    I believe it was called hockeyforum.com, and then there was a break-off one called hockeystation. Neither were big, and they were run by guys from NYC, but I was surprised when I found this forum as it was around at that time but I never found it. I guess my computer search skills around 2003 were not too adequate lol.

    Anyway, this site is pretty huge by comparison, this Canucks subforum is substantially larger than either of those sites ever were. The main boards look vicious here, I shall probably stay away.

    I remember hockeyforum.com

    The Canucks board there was rather small and I was a poster there.

    Hi. My name is I'm not telling you my name because I have a moderately high profile job in a situation/place some would consider fancy (not my wife unfortunately); point is need to maintain certain perceptions.

    Anyway... been a Nucks fan since birth in Surrey Memorial in 1980. Lots of water under the bridge. Was at game 4 in 1994 when Bure got a game misconduct and game 5 when Luongo got a shutout. Good thing too, cost me more than 10k to travel back and buy tickets so at least the game I went to was positive. Lots of heartbreak as nicks fans but at least I really enjoyed two great teams (maybe 2.5 if you consider the West Coast Express Era). I should also admit I was at the Bertuzzi-Moore game drunk and screaming for blood. Of course, I never thought it would happen.

    The reason I am writing here is I may post more in the coming years. I was always a lurker but now with kids I don't have so much time for myself and also I don't really care what others say or respond to me on a message board. It's more to vent my own thoughts.

    Finally, I would like to thank M2B for really helping to make these boards more fun and interesting to read over the last few (relatively dissapointing) years, whether intentional or not. The mystery continues...

    This is pretty random...
    I was cleaning out my yahoo email... and I came across this in the drafts from Sept 23rd, 2004:




    Since September 11, 2001, Americans and Canadians have come together as never before in our generation. We have banded together to overcome tremendous adversity. We have weathered direct attacks on our own soil, wars overseas, corporate/government scandal, layoffs, unemployment, stock price plunges, droughts, fires, mad cow, SARS, high gasoline prices, and a myriad of economic and physical disasters both great and small. But now, we must come together once again to overcome our greatest challenge yet.

    Hundreds of Professional Hockey players in our very own nation are
    Being locked out, living at well below the seven-figure salary level.
    And as if that weren't bad enough they are being deprived of their life
    giving pay for several months, possibly longer, as a result of the current lockoutsituation. But you can help!

    For only $20,835 a month, about $694.50 a day (that's less than the
    cost of a large screen projection TV) you can help an NHL player remain economically viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the problem as it barely covers the annual minimum salary, but it's a start, and every little bit will help!

    Although $700 may not seem like a lot of money to you, to a hockey player it could mean the difference between spending the lockout
    golfing in Florida or on a Mediterranean cruise. For you, seven hundred
    dollars is nothing more than a month's rent, half a mortgage payment, or a month of medical insurance, but to a hockey player, $700 will partially replace his daily salary.

    Your commitment of less than $700 a day will enable a player to buy
    that home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for a new
    Ferrari, or enjoy a weekend in Rio.

    HOW WILL I KNOW I'M HELPING?

    Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the player
    you sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k)! ,
    real estate, and other investment holdings will be mailed to your home.
    Plus, upon signing up for this program, you will receive an unsigned
    photo of the player lounging during the lockout on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean (for a signed photo, please include an additional $150).
    Put the photo on your refrigerator to remind you of other peoples'
    suffering.

    HOW WILL HE KNOW I'M HELPING?

    Your NHL player will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just
    wants to help in a time of need. Although the player won't know your
    name, he will be able to make collect calls to your home via a special
    operator in case additional funds are needed for unforeseen expenses.

    YES, I WANT TO HELP!

    I would like to sponsor a locked out NHL player. My preference is
    (check below):

    [ ] Forward
    [ ] Defenseman
    [ ] Goaltender
    [ ] Entire team (Please call our 900 number to ask for the cost of a specific team - $10 per minute)
    [ ] Jaromir Jagr (Higher cost: $32,000 per day)

    Please charge the account listed below $694.50 per day for the duration of the lockout. Please send me a picture of the player I have sponsored along with an Jaromir Jagr 2001 Income Statement and my very own Bob Goodenow (Executive Director of the NHLPA player's Union) pin to wear proudly on my hat (include $80 for hat).

    Your Name: _______________________
    Telephone Number: _______________________
    Account Number: _______________________ Exp. Date:_____
    [ ] MasterCard [ ] Visa [ ] American Express [ ] Other
    Signature: _______________________

    Alternate card (when the primary card exceeds its credit limit):
    Account Number: _______________________ Exp. Date:_______ [ ]
    MasterCard [ ] Visa [ ] American Express [ ] Other
    Signature: _______________________

    THANK YOU FOR HELPING
    NHL PLAYERS ASSOCIATION

    Hey y'all, my name is Ryan, used to be a regular here known as Randy Marsh here years ago but that account seems to be long gone. Started lurking a bit again recently so figured I might as well get myself a new account.

    Glad to have you aboard!:thumbu:

    PS: Ignore anything that the poster "Hit the Post" says. He's so full of #%@#%$, a bottle of ex-lax couldn't unplug his system.
