He could not wait and truthfully, neither could I.
Please welcome Jon to the KK family of bloggers. -Paul
JJ at KK…
Sure has a ring to it, no?
Allow myself to introduce… Myself…
For those that aren’t already familiar, I’m happy to join the team at Kukla’s Korner after three years of covering the Tampa Bay Lightning at HockeyBuzz.com. I was fortunate enough to establish a loyal and passionate following in my time there, as well as to earn the respect of the organization on the basis of my work and can only hope to see that grow here at my new home.
Along with continued coverage of the Bolts, my work here at KK will also largely center around the Southeast Division’s other four clubs and I will chime in on leaguewide issues from time to time as well.
If you’ve been reading me for some time, you know to expect an honest and impartial opinion from a passionate hockey mind. I don’t hold back (with few exceptions) and, while that may have led me to trouble, oh, once or twice in the past, I’ve found that it’s that very approach that has drawn readers to my work, regardless of subject matter, over the years.
(A special note to fans of the Atlanta Thrashers, Carolina Hurricanes, Florida Panthers and Washington Capitals – and to the clubs themselves: Don’t let my geographic location lead you to any conclusions. My coverage was never of the homer/fan variety when the Bolts were my sole responsibility and it certainly won’t be now.)
In short, I aim to tell it like it is. And I do hope the vast majority can appreciate that. (That goes for you too, Lightning faithful that have accompanied me to my new locale!)
We’ll kick things off officially in September with the new blog (which is without a title, presently and, yes, I will be glad to take suggestions!) In the interim, I’ll be stopping by, in guest fashion, to get my feet wet a bit and get comfortable in my new surroundings. Later this week, I’ll take a statistical look back at the Southeast’s best individual players from last season as a bit of a primer for the upcoming 2010-11 campaign.
Between now and then, please feel free to drop me a line however you like. Comments, tweets (@JonJordan) and emails (firstname.lastname@example.org) are all welcome. I have always made it a point to do my absolute best to respond to every message and very much look forward to interacting with readers, new and old!
Thanks for dropping by today, thanks in advance (I hope) for having me and I look forward to bringing you the best Southeast Division coverage that I possibly can for 2010-11 and beyond.
