EIGHT Positions Confirmed.*** HALTED ***, EMAIL ERRORS***

****I received some Mail Delivery Notifications indicating that some e-mails were not valid. I don’t know how that happened. Scroll all the way down (in this post) to see if your e-mail was considered an ERROR by my mail service .

Welcome to the 2005 HockeyTradeRumors.com Season Preview Project.

Here at HTR, we want to take our season preview to the next level.

To succeed that, the season preview needs a staff with knowledge and dedication.

We are looking for volunteers to write up team previews and other columns. To find out more, please READ HERE

EIGHT Positions have been confirmed as taken, check in the post.Thank you for showing interest in taking part of this project.

HTR.com has already had season previews, experimental, but this time we really want it to be organized and we want to give our best to the hockey fans out there.

Most of you already know I mentioned this before, and some of you have already contacted me by showing interest.

My first goal is to create a staff, as permanent as possible. By that I mean that I want to pick the correct writers to be a part of this project, and keep them for season previews in the future. That way we would all know each other better and your names would be recognizable to readers.

This means that dedication, effort, and hockey knowledge are the main characteristics I will be looking for. So even if you have the hockey knowledge, but you don’t have the time to work on this, then I cannot add you to the staff.

I think I made my opening statements pretty clear in what I am specifically looking for, and hopefully I have cought interest in many of you. ***You Must Read Entire Post if interested***.

How am I going to pick?

You will have to fill out an application and then e-mail that application to me. The application is included in this post.



Name: (First name required, if for personal reasons you do not want to reveal your last name, you can just include the first letter of your last name. Ex: Micki P.)

HTR Username: (i.e.: mikster)

Position you are applying for: (Team writer, mention which team)

Age: (An 18 year old can be smarter than a 25 year old, so age is a non factor in my decisions)

Job/Work: (You do not have to be specific, but I must know if your line of work will give you enough free time to work on this project. Being a student counts, so if without a job but a student, mention it.)

Location: (No need to give me the exact location such as the name of your city/town, but I need to know in which USA state you live in, or in which Province (CA) you live in)

Hockey experience: (if you have any as player, or as writer)

Hobbies: (if you have any)

Favorite NHL team:

Other NHL teams you support: (Put them in order from most supported to lesser supported)

Favorite Player(s): (No more than 3)

Favorite Position: (Forward, Defense, Goalie)

What you like most about the game of hockey: (I am not asking for an essay. Just give me a brief piece, no more than 6 sentences if possible)

Bio: (Just tell me a little bit about yourself. Again, nothing too long, but I like creativity.)

Your thoughts on HTR: (Definitely include how long you have been on HTR. I am not looking for suck ups! So, I’d like honesty here and I’d take a pros/cons type of form.)


The application ends there. You have to follow the application and especially the instructions for sending the application.

You must send the application to this e-mail address:


Yes, it has two underscores __ so don’t worry, it’s not a typo.

Any questions can be asked on here to be posted as comments. If you have other questions and prefer not to post them on here as comments then you can include them in the e-mail along with the application.

I will also REPLY to your e-mail to CONFIRM that I have received the application. If you send it and you do not receive a reply within 24 hours, post a comment on here to notify me.

Now this is very ***important***. There could be many volunteers applying for the same position, ie: Maple Leafs. So it will take me sometime to narrow down the choices.

Also, I am looking to add other kinds of columns that go along with the Season Preview.

Other columns will be:

NHL Goalies

Breakout/Bust Teams

Breakout/Bust Players

You MAY directly apply to those positions.

As you can see, this is nothing simple. I am looking for people who would put the time and effort into this project just as I am putting time and effort to organize it.

This is pretty much it. Any questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks again for showing interest,

Micki Peroni

Vice-Admin HTR.com

*** IMPORTANT NOTE: I WILL UPDATE this post to notify if any positions are taken. Also, I may come up with other parts that need writers. So keep an eye out with the updates. You will know when an UPDATE occurs as it will show in the HEADLINE TITLE.

E-mail Errors: (I will not include the whole address for safety reasons, so recognize the name)





E-mail me again and I’ll try to reply again in hopes it works.

Sorry all for the technical errors, this is a very annoying delay for me as well.

The following teams are occupied:

Edmonton Oilers

Nashville Predators

Columbus Blue Jackets

San Jose Sharks

Vancouver Canucks

Dallas Stars

Pittsburgh Penguins

Calgary Flames

    if you could only know, it would blow your mind to say the least. but all your guesses are way off, sorry.

  2. Scruffy05 says:

    Have the people selected for the 5 teams been notified that it is them yet?

  3. starsgirl25 says:

    am i the stars writer?

  4. harry1616 says:

    umm whos writing for what team cuz i never got an email saying if i was selected or wasnt.

  5. marcs797 says:

    haha, its like my cousin, who only liked the flyers when that had zubrus, lol

    the funny thing is, she actually met him at a club after he got traded to the caps. weird… lol

  6. mikster says:

    Yes, if you get picked then you get notified.

  7. mikster says:

    If you did not get an email for a position that has been mentioned, then you know you were not picked.

  8. quick_stick says:

    Hey, just wanted to say still haven’t gotten a responce yet. Respond here if you want another email addy.

  9. wheresthesoda says:

    are u gonna notify us if ur sure we’re not gonna be the writer or something, cause i was just wondering what my possible status is.

  10. Scruffy05 says:

    With all the people that have applied this is doubtful. It would be very nice, but doubtful…

  11. mikster says:

    I know, sorry about that but i’ve been busy, even on a Sunday.

    Trying to organize things the best way i can. Just hang in there, please.

  12. mikster says:

    I’m really doing the best i can and i try to figure out ways to get more from you guys to compare.

    I mean, you applied for the Rangers, right?, and i asked you and others who applied for that to give me a brief view of the Rnagers and such and comparing them….. it’s even harder because i have to choose one out of x number of good ones.

    I said this will be taking a while, and of course the email errors were certainly a problem and delayed things a bit, which pissed me off.

    Just hang in there… it’s a lot that i am looking at and i thought this was not going to be hard, but it is.

    I want to get the writers that will be the same as next year for the season preview. Last thing i want is to get a bunch of guys who do so-so and i have to look up for others next year.

    Just hang in there, that’s all i ask.

  13. Leafs88 says:

    So who has been assigned to the teams you listed above? Did you send them emails or something?

  14. mikster says:

    Yes, the writers of those teams know that they got the position.

  15. quick_stick says:

    heh…no problem at all. Just want to make sure I didn’t miss an email from you. If you need some other help going through some reviews, let me know. Got some ideas that might make it work more fluid. Be a good idea to get some fact checkers and editors on board as well.

  16. hockeyman17 says:
