That’s Vancouver time, so adjust your watches accordingly.

As you know, is the new hockey blog created by Ed Lau and me. We held a contest to pick a domain name, giving away a 4GB iPod nano to Jessica Yu and a 8GB iPod nano to Braden Graham.

Joining us in our hockey blogging adventure will be Gary Jones from BlueFur Web Hosting and Rainer Schmoll from Thinkreferrals Blog Network. The four of us will be formally introducing ourselves on Slap Shot Squad tomorrow (Thursday). That’s exactly 13 hours away. Ominous number.

In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek.

What do you think of the banner? The sideboards will probably be open for sponsorship and/or other advertising in some way. Contact me if you’re interested and we can talk.
