This is something I'm really excited about.
During the playoffs, NHL.com featured a fair share of content from SBN Hockey blogs throughout the playoff portal on the main page. Hooks and I were keeping tallies at one point to see whose posts got more love from the NHL, but I think at some point we lost count and just marked it up as a job well done. As you can imagine, that is a good thing.
For the upcoming season, NHL.com and all of SBN Hockey will be prominently featured on NHL.com's Fan Portal.
Each site manager has been asked to send along content each day/week that they feel stands out above the rest, or perhaps touches on a topic that hasn't been discussed. There will also be some NHL eyes checking in from time to time to see what we have rolling out on the site. That's where you guys come in.
You see, this isn't open to just the staffers here at Pensburgh. If you type up a fanpost - and by that we mean, not another recap or preview - and get some front page love on the site here, then there's also a chance it will get picked up on NHL.com. There's no guarantee of course, but your chances increase greatly with each contribution.
It's definitely pick-up line material.
