About Me

Favorite Teams

Atlanta Thrashers '02-presentFlorida Panthers '94-'02I grew up in Florida, adopted the Panthers. I moved to Atlanta in '01, fell in love with the home team.

Most Hated Teams

Dallas Stars-along with the Devils, ruined hockey in the late '90's.

Favorite Players

Scott Mellanby, for 10+ years, and all of the Thrashers.

Most Hated Players

Derian Hatcher, Ryan Hollweg.

Best Hockey Memories

'96 Finals: Panthers vs. Avs, great to folllow my team all the way to the end! I have an original rat that hit the ice, and a numbered Conference Champs poster, recently signed by Scott Mellanby.

As a hockey player, I compare to...

Garnet Exelby. Hard working, quiet and humble, yet feared and viscious when needed. 9th round pick makes good.
