FanSided NHL Week In Review: October 4


No longer having to ask is is October yet, we are on the eve so to speak of the start of the NHL regular season for 2010-2011.  At long last the summer is over and the real chase for Lord Stanley’s cup begins Thursday.

We hope that you’ll continue to come to this site daily and get the flavor of our writers as we all give our varied viewpoints on the happenings of the NHL.  When we first started this site in June it was obviously at the tail end of the season and even though there weren’t too many news items this summer, we continued to march on and be noticed by you our readers.

I know that I speak for all the Fansided NHL writers when I say this,  we all are looking forward to the start of the season, and can’t wait for things to unfold.

That said, this weekly feature will contain our best or most popular articles from the past week.  That could be a tall task since we are heading into the season with each team represented, but that just means that all of us will be primed to bring you our best efforts.

To start this weeks segment off, here is an article from John Panarese from Eye On Isles.  John is an extremely unique hockey fan in that he’s been blind since birth.  Had I not told you that I’d bet you wouldn’t know it.  This article received a lot of attention last week, as it should.
