More than a few bloggers have posted their end-of-season, “Thank you” letters to their readers, and I offer nothing different today in terms of my main message:
Starting this blog has been a bumpy road, and I am incredibly, incredibly grateful for those of you who’ve read the blog, commented upon its content, and have spread the word about this slowly-growing blog. I’m indebted to you for your support this past season, and I know it was also no easy season in which to follow the Wings…
So, to those of you who are taking a break until September, I bid you a fond farewell, but I would also encourage you to stick around for the off-season, because I’m going to be a busy bee.
After tomorrow’s locker room clean-out, coverage will shift toward the Grand Rapids Griffins and Toledo Walleye’s playoff runs, with my goal being to attend as many Griffins playoff games as possible;
We already know that Dylan Larkin, Martin Frk and Frans Nielsen will be taking part in the World Championship in Denmark in May;
The draft lottery will be held at the end of this month, with the draft to follow in late June (11 Wings picks included);
And who knows what might happen in terms of free agency…
And in between, there’s going to be more than enough time to work on the blog’s design, logo, to fund-raise (sorry, but I’ve got to do it).
For me, this is going to be a busy spring and summer, full of hockey coverage both foreign and domestic, and I hope that you stick around for the ride.
