After stumbling onto this forum thanks to a Google search for some Canada Cup/World Cup info and falling down a statistical rabbit hole as a result, I've decided to poke my head in and join up. Sounds interesting, especially with the World Championships around the corner.

As for my hockey fan bonafides, I'm a longtime fan of the AHL's Rochester Americans and NHL Buffalo Sabres. (Not a surprise, considering I was born, raised and continue to live in Rochester.)

And for the record, Western New York is generally considered to comprise Rochester and Buffalo, although where Central ends and Western begins is shrouded in mystery. :)

Thanks for having me and I look forward to participating in discussions!
