As traditionally us Finns celebrate Christmas today (Turku declared Christmas peace/Joulurauha at 10:00 GMT today), I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all my readers and sponsors for the past year. 2012 has seen the blog grow as it has done. We have published more reviews and have a pipeline of more to come. We have been critical of the NHL lockout as a long-time fan of the league and we have tried to examine the damage it has had to its brand. We have talked about concussions and of my own games and experiences in the world of hockey.
What initially started as a bit of fun and as an online game diary has grown into something that thousands upon thousands of people read. Did not expect that would ever happen, but here we are. There are some plans that we are looking to do in the new year and a few things that I want to try out with the blog, including more guest writers and perhaps try and incorporate some video content as well, that is if people want to see my ugly mug.
From the team point of view, I’d like to wish all my team mates and our fans and supporters in Bristol and abroad a great festive season. Look forward to seeing you all in January.
Either way, I wanted to thank you all for the past 12 months and wish you a Merry Christmas and a successful new year 2013
