    Do you still stand by your article that the Oilers lost the Penner trade?

    Hey man, I can see something in doing it, but let me talk to Ken and Zander about it first.

    As far as the Oilers favor, I just had him act as Community Leader on my Oilers' season preview.

    To be honest, you're the best person to be contacting people—not only do I have a non-impressive amount of contacts (a scout in the Nashville Preds organization, a few London Knights employees, and a few former knights, and the list of teams' media-dealing personnel etcetera), because you're doing the interview, I've always found it to be more impressive coming from the person interested—if you include more people things get lost in translation and whatnot.

    If I could be of more help, I definitely would though, but we're technically in the same boat with connections. You have contacted the right guy though, and if you don't hear back at first, just keep trying Salim.

    Best of luck with the attempt :)

    Salim, I'm not working in firefox today, so here's the editor's feedback.

    Great article! I just added a photo, tweaked your headline, and edited for style. Make sure everything checks out and keep up the awesome work!

    Thanks for the note on FB...

    We actually have a contest in the works, and it will be the type where the winners get T-Shirts. Look for details early next week!

    Hey Salim,

    I hope you've been enjoying the new and improved Bleacher Report—we're really happy with the feedback we've received so far.

    Just thought I'd let you know that next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements, and thus it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.

    Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend Salim!
