The Malik Report

One chapter ends, and another begins

Today, the Malik Report is changing course. After working for Paul for eight years, I've decided to step away from Kukla's Korner and to start my own blog--a crowd-funded one--at http://themalikreport.com


It's been an incredibly difficult decision-making process in choosing to begin this new adventure, but I believe that it's simply time to try running my own blog without any outside assistance or sponsorship, and I'm ready to give 'er a go.

I'm incredibly and profoundly grateful to Paul for his support and guidance over the past eight years. He's been a tremendous role model and friend, and I will miss working with him...And I'm incredibly grateful to you, dear readers, for having supported my work and having created a TMR community that's thrived over the past 8 years. Thank you so much for your readership.

I'm ready to get started on a new chapter of my blogging career, and today, the journey begins anew.

I want to say thank you, George, but that would feel like things are coming to an end -  its not like you are stopping your coverage. Your insight and the depth at which you covered the Wings has been so valuable to the growth of my fanship.

I’ll be a reader & commenter for sure. A fresh start under a different username will be good, anyway.

Tough decision I’m sure! Thanks for everything you’ve done George. Looks like I’ll have two must read hockey sites on my daily list.

I believe Ken holland is behind yet another demise of a good team.

Man I hate change,

Sincerely crusty old man.

That aside, best of luck, and very nice of Paul to support you in the endeavor.

Wow, I did not expect to read this this morning.  TMR on KK has been the best click for Red Wings news and prospect commentary for years.  I remember when you moved from mlive, and hope this will turn out as effective.  It’s a tough grind but you’ve always put in a lot of hours anyway.

Wow.  I don’t open KK for one day and look what I miss?!?! 

I visit one hockey site…that would be this one.  Guess I’ll have to make it two now. 

I’m looking forward to seeing the shifting of content from BOTH sides.  I’ve always thought of you two (GM and PK) as a great team from everything I’ve seen and the coverage you provided for each other.

A little like driving down a familiar street a forgetting for a moment that an old standby
moved their shop.

Thanks to you both, very best of everything to both, and yeah, will read both sites just as often.

It’s just going to be funny for a while remembering they aren’t hosted under one umbrella site.

Which I guess it why I’m still posting this on the old Malik Report.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
