Best of Hockey On the Web Poll

by NiNY

I don't know about you, but I'm getting pretty excited and antsy for the NHL season to begin. Prospects Tourneys, training camp, pre-season games....then the big show!

So, because I'm jonesing, I thought I'd toss up a little poll. I want to find out (in the most scientific way possible, of course), what the most-popular sites are for hockey consumers.

So, please take a moment to respond to the following questions. Then I'll tally and post the results.

1. Your friend calls and says your team just made a big announcement. What website do you go to first to check it out?

2. Your friend calls and says the league just handed down a big suspension to the doosh you hate. What website do you go to first to check it out?

3. Who is your favorite hockey columnist?

4. What's your go-to site for salary cap, contract info?

5. What's your go-to site for trade info?

6. What's your go-to site for historical stats/data?

7. What site do you camp out at (and hit F5 over and over again) on trade deadline day?

8. What's your guilty pleasure hockey site?

9. What's your go-to site for non-NHL hockey?

10. Do you write for a site or blog? If so, which one?

I'm looking forward to your answers!

1. Russo's Rants
2. HF Boards - it's similar to #1 (and probably a close second to checking Russo for the Wild) but I love to get the hodgepodge of sources and fans' opinions
3. Tough call. Traditional media would have to be Bobby Mac or Michael Russo but in terms of bloggers I have to go with Wysh at Puck Daddy.
4. Capgeek
5. TSN.ca
6. Hockey-Reference.com
7. HF Boards (at least until it crashes) then TSN
8. Don't really have one (sorry Eklund)
9. uscho.com
10. I write for multiple sites including First Round Bust (www.firstroundbust.com) and SB Nation Minnesota (minnesota.sbnation.com)
