Then good for you, you are not feeling any of the pain. CapGeek was an THE reference site.
Was a solid and well-presented source on salaries and the cap and will be missed.
I agree all the other option are definately not up to part with capgeek. The only thing missing was player height and weight and if they shoot left or right
Therein lies the key as to why he won't (can't) sell the site.
Yaarrr, it says here; http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-p...s-due-to-owner-s-health-crisis-024933796.html
"Where did the info come from? Wuest, who was a freelance hockey writer with gigs at Metro Halifax and The Hockey News, kept it tight to the vest, but told Puck Daddy in 2009 that they included media reports, confirmation through official channels and Wuest's own informants.
"The biggest thing is making sure you have good sources who can provide the most accurate data," Wuest said.
Over time, Cap Geek became the only site tracking salary info. NHLSCAP.com ceased operation and endorsed Wuest. NHL Numbers joined The Nation Network and became an analytics site.
It was also hugely influential – with salary information being share by mainstream writers, ferreted out by Wuest and collected in one massive site, NHL teams like the Carolina Hurricanes began reporting their own contract numbers."
Like I said on page 1 to me that clarifies the confusion I had as well, why not sell? What's up? But it makes sense when you see that and consider that you don't 'sell' sources etc so he probably is not in good enough health either to even work on that or think about how to make that work. Bummer all around. Hope he gets better most of all whether capgeek comes back or not.
I will always remember nhlscap as being the guy who came to the boards looking for advice about his wife leaving him because he spent too much time updating his site. Another time, another hf boards...sounds like cancer. Or suicide.
The NHL should just buy capgeek.com and become its primary source.
The NHL are now probably the happiest bunch that the site is down!
The NHLPA on the otherhand ... Not that happy!
So you think the NHL wasn't happy with teams sending their numbers voluntarily? I think the site was helping everyone and this why some teams were giving away the data.
Well, at least we now have less of these armchair GMs making stupid proposals.
sounds suspicious, why wouldn't he consider purchase inquiries?
I dont get it. Why doesn't he just sell it to someone who would continue his legacy?
No wonder you were always confused when it came to teams' cap numbers.
Yeah, I'm also confused. Why not sell it? Hope he recovers but.. cmon lol
Imagine if Zuckerberg gets sick and shuts down Facebook..
Because the buyer would never get the sources he used to get all the numbers. As I understand it. You don't sell peoples' phone numbers ya know.
capgeek also did calculations like how much of Allen's contract would be retained on the cap after his demotion, etc. A much more involved resource imo.
nhlnumbers.com is bruuuuutal.
