Site Update Done (Mostly...)

I've finished the bulk of the site upgrade process. You might still run across some things that I haven't fully re-configured or re-installed, but the most the day-to-day stuff is back. Most notable is that I haven't yet restored the image galleries. I'm still trying to decide what the final style and theme of the new site will be, so it may look different each time you visit over the next few days. Feel free to leave comments. :) I'll post more over the next few days. If you find some stuff not working, please leave a comment...

Site Update

Boltprospects.com will be undergoing a much needed site upgrade tonight. Please bear with any strangeness....

Expect More Lightning WJC Player Announcements to Come

The Lightning officially have one prospect in the upcoming U-20 World Junior Championships with Karri Ramo announced for Team Finland. Meanwhile, Andy Rogers has a long shot chance of making Team Canada after being invited to their selection camp. Don't expect that to be the end of the announcements though. An unofficial list is being circulated around the internet showing Kingston (OHL) forward Radek Smolenak joining Team Czech Republic. Also returning to the WJC's will probably be Stanislav Lascek, who just slips under the age limit turning 20 just after the tournament, and perhaps Marek Bartanus who played last season for Team Slovakia in the U-18 tournament. Hulking defenseman Vladamir Mihalik, who also played for Slovakia in the U-18 tournament should join his countrymen as well.

Isn't It Amazing?

Lost in the last couple of weeks of hockey is the fact that as of right now the Tampa Bay Lightning have the best record of any team in the NHL over their last 10 games (8-1-1). Isn't it amazing? Especially when you think it seems like just yesterday we were lamenting a six game losing streak and the hockey media was just about getting ready to write the Tampa Bay Lightning's obituary. And the interesting thing is: I think we'd all have to agree this club is only playing up to about 85% of its capability right now. The offense has not been anywhere near as explosive as it could be and the defense, while workmanlike on many nights allowing a miniscule amount of shots, could be tighter. Heaven help the NHL if the Lightning finds fourth gear. It's good to be the champs.
