An end-of-season ‘thank you, but stay tuned’

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.

I have been blogging about the Red Wings since 2006, when MLive hired me to work their SlapShots blog, and I joined Kukla's Korner in 2011 as The Malik Report. I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.

  1. Looking forward to it!

    Summer is the worst once free agency has calmed down. Dreading it.

  2. Have enjoy your Blog and will continue to follow during the summer. Hoping the Griff’s will have a long playoff run again – watching with Wings in the draft this year will be fun as well.

  3. George hit me up if you want to attend a Walleye playoff game I am a 9 yr season ticket holder with glass seats. Hoping this will be Toledo’s year. Love reading your articles about the Wings and their prospects.

  4. Glad to see you will still be talking hockey and putting in work this Summer, George. I’m not going anywhere.

    Sounds like a lot of fun to follow the Griffs and the Fish too… good luck to both clubs.

    Hope you stay healthy as can be and as long as you write it… I will read it. 🙂

    Thank You for doing what you do!

  5. Thank you George. You are an inspiration for what you do. I am glad you are such a great fan of a team you love.

  6. Your attention to prospects is unique and such an paramount part of our pleasure as fans. There is no off-season for Wingnuts. Full speed ahead!
