What Now?

We're all still coping with the loss of our team, but it got me thinking... what am I going to do now? Like many of you, I developed a love for the sport of hockey, not just the Thrashers. The Thrashers are gone, but I'd like to keep thinking about - and writing about - hockey.

The failure of the Atlanta Thrashers underscores the difficulties that hockey faces in sunbelt markets, but hockey itself is about more than the NHL.

I began to think that there's an interesting story here, one worth continuing to write about: hockey in the south. I thought it would be interesting to have a community focused on the unique issues, failures, and successes of our non-traditional market. It wouldn't be focused on a specific team or a specific league, it would be focused on a specific region.

I've chatted with a few people about it and there is some interest. I think I can put together enough writers to have a real blog. My question is: are you guys interested? If so, what type of content would you like to see? We'd cover teams in the area, prospects who developed in south, perhaps some college and amateur hockey... but what else?

I don't know if I can continue to use this blog or SB Nation to do this, but if there's interest, I'll find a way to make it happen. Vote in the poll and leave your comments below.
