This is a mission statement of sorts for the blog in the 2011-12 season. Feel free to ignore if you don't care about non-hockey content...
My intent with game recaps is to have a running history of the season, with all the highs and lows that it entails. Huge gaps in the timeline aren't conducive to that. So unlike last year when I flamed out at the end of October, I will have something to say about each game and it will be posted before the next game occurs. Whether it follows the usual format or if I only have time for a one-paragraph "Hey, great game!" or "Pull your heads out of your rear ends, you guys!", I'm going to have at least something to say.
Game recaps are going to be called "The Film Room" this year, as you may have noticed. The name isn't intended to mean that I'll be super-analytical, as that's not my strength anyway - but it fits with the name of the blog, and is all sorts of witty. (Or not. Whatever.)
As events unfold, I'll also write about the things that don't occur during the context of a single game as well. I'll have something coming up on Monday about Brad Boyes, for example. I may also try to come up with some weekly features, but I haven't figured out what those might be yet. If I do, I can promise you that it'll last longer than the ill-fated "Sabre MVP of the Week" that became "The Ryan Miller Award" from a couple seasons ago.
Also, for those of you that have read my contributions at Buffalo Wins, those will continue as well. Look for a new entry in the "Why You Can't Blame" series next Friday. I have a lot of fun writing that series, and I appreciate Joe for giving me a platform there.
As always, thanks for taking the time to read my drivel, and let's enjoy the ride this season.
