Slowing Down

So now that hockey season is back in full swing, my site no longer seems to be necessary to give folks their offseason hockey fix. So after averaging around 70,000 to 80,000 hits a day, we're down to around 9,000 or 10,000. Nothing to sneeze at, but definitely not the traffic I had this summer. And that's to be expected.

So while I don't have the content I did during the peaks this summer, just know that I'm still working on this site as much as ever. In fact, right now, I'm taking a break from designing Center Ice graphics.

In fact, maybe some of you can help me. I'm working on the New York Islanders right now. I've got the logo and center line in place, but I can't seem to get the right font for the text around the circle. If any of you guys still reading might be able to offer me a little assistance in that regard, I'd be more than appreciative. But I envision this problem cropping up on more than one occasion.

If you think you can help, drop me a line in the comments or by email.

That reminds me, I still need photos for most teams, so if any of you have pictures or have seen pictures online, I'd love for you to send them my way if you can. This is going to be a very slow process if I'm doing it all on my own.

Anyway, I'll have today's uniform review posted shortly and then I'll be calling it a night. Enjoy yourselves and let me know if you guys think of anything else I can do to improve upon the site.

No relation with the post, but the Penguins are in town to face the Canadiens next day, and after the training practice of the Pens, a NHL player association representative came to speak with the entire team.

The speech was 10 minutes long, and after that, a reporter say Sidney Crosby talking with the guy for another 15 minutes.

The only comment that the representative said was that there will be changes. What changes? No one knows.

Any rinks in particular you're having a tough time finding? A list of the ones you have and the ones you need would be good. Save people the trouble of looking for stuff that's not needed. I'll help out in the search if possible.

I've always wanted to know the font on the NVMC ice too, so I'd like to download the font too. Its a tough/nearly impossible to find font.

It looks like the font Bauhaus, with a lot of space in between the letters....but it's too thin.

It'll help to get that stain off the logo~

i can only imagine how difficult the search must be, but the ONLY good pic of NVMC has a friggin' Ranger in it?
