    Hmm, doesn´t anyone use emails now?? I don't want twitter and those kind of things. Anyhow, I'm a swedish dude who has been a Kings fans sinces 1990 I think and I can really relate to your "Kings' Never-Say-Die Attitude Will Prevail" aticle. I thought it was brilliant written and so true, wasn't fun to like Kings here in the middle 90's when eveybody here liked Red Wings, Rangers and Pittsburgh but I an happy I stuck with the Kings and I agree with you, I think they'll have a huge shot at the cup.
    I read you articles from time to time and you are very good what you are doing.
    Cheers// Jecke PS if you feel like it I¨m always up for talking hockey!! :-)

    Boy your a little short on fact on the coyotes attendence ..Well lets give you a little facts so you can do a honest rewrite..For one there attendence is up..You forget how they measure that by ticket givaways which are down 65% over last year..Next fact is are attendence will end up at at least over 15,995 this year..How would I know that well next home game is about 100 single tickets shy of a sellout..Pens,bruins,Hawks,vans,flyers,montral,leafs,and etc will all be ticket prices for lose games in the lower level are $100 or more..Upper level no cheapier then $65 what does that tell you there a demand for hockey..But to get anyone to write the truth.That is another story which is "sad"Look at winnipeg not selling out alll there games..Move them..Do your Job!!!

    Hi Andrew, sorry about the change I made on Leeman and Vaive. I thought you had talked to them rather than them being part of the 10 players named. My mistake there. Thanks for letting me know and please don't hesitate to do so if it (gasp!) should ever happen again.
