    I was looking for information related to Spanish ice hockey on www.nhl.com , I've never been a forum's member (no mather the content) so far, but this forum seems to be very civiliced. I hope to learn a lot here since there are many hockey wise people here.

    Chicago so far so good

    I found this forum when I used Google to find info on ice hockey in Spain...I usually cruise the internet for half an hour after work , waiting for the heavy traffic of people leaving work to end...it seems interesting so I will check in every day or two to see what people around the world are writing about hockey...I played hockey on ponds and outdoor rinks in Indiana, near Chicago, and then in high school, I was skating six days a week and didn't mind sweeping with big brooms after we played so they could spray the ice with a hose so it would be ready the next day...while living in Barcelona I was recruited to play in the Liga National for a team in Barcelona...and I played one season before moving back to the USA...I played one season in a recreational league for men over 30....now I need a league for men over 50, I'm still not used to wearing a helmet, and I've never used a metal stick, I've played against goalies that didn't wear a mask, and I remember when the curved stick was something 'new'...we curved our own because you couldn't buy them that way...

    I just noticed something: there is a note that I am not allowed to vote on the poll up in the thread. If the new-comers are not allowed to vote, what's the point of the poll?

    Probably a quirk that fell through the cracks - I'll look into this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    I had seen a few references about it on HFBoards but I never joined and I was looking for a good quality international hockey forum. In my infinite wisdom, I went to Google and typed in "International Hockey Forums." And lo and behold, this was the first one to show up and it is awesome.

    Hi, This has nothing to do with your discussion, but I'm hoping someone here can help. I registered yesterday and when I try to start a new thread I get the following message...

    CC6, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.


    I was surprised to see I could reply to a post. I clicked on "Contact Us" but it says it can't be found. Just wondered if it took a certain amount of time before I was officially activated or, if I don't have sufficient priviledges, how I can get them.

    Thanks for your help. And by the way I found this site by searching google for international hockey interests.

    CC

    Quite simply: you're too new. I don't remember how long the sort of probationary period is but you won't be able to start a new thread for a little while.

    Thanks for the info. I check the FAQ's and I couldn't find mention of any sort of a probationary period, so I figured it was a computer issue (which I'm great at getting myself into). Is it simply a period of time or do I need to reply to a certain number of other posts or anything like that?
    Thanks

    I found this place almost a year ago due to a link on NHL.com.
    They had a feature about the New Zealand Hockey team and they were linking to the New Zealand section.

    Some great stuff on here I didn't know about.

    Hello and welcome everybody.

    Also a warm and special welcome to Anne Elk (Miss) who I happen to know.

    Anne Elk always argue to the point and she's one of the sharpest observers out there. Looking forward to some great discussions

    I was curious about the IIHF, and by accident typed in IHF, scrolled down a bit and saw it was the leading hockey forum, and I decided I wanted to be part of the elite, I also noticed some people from the HF boards on here.
    OBJECTION!

    Honestly, I found this site while trying to find the Austrian National Team jersey. And I can say that I'm pretty happy that I did, as talking with people about hockey from around the world is something that I wanted to do.

    Was searching for a certain AaB Aalborg roster on google which directed me straight to the 2008-09 Al-Bank liiga thread and from then one it has become one of my favourite sites.

    I found it looking for AaB Aalborg information following their weekend away trip to England with games against Sheffield Steelers and Coventry Blaze.

    As I co run a Coventry Blaze fans forum called the FireandIceforum I was looking for hockey minded european fans to look in on, this excellent forum fits the bill beautifully. I really rate the sport and the players skills. But hockey fans are totally tops.

    I believe someone on InterBasket forums suggested me this as a very similar site about hockey... but maybe from IIHF message boards, I don't recall :)

    Searching around for hockey related websites ages ago! I've changed my username since so it might only show a month or so! I spend most of my time on this website :D I'm so grateful for it. I still think we should be able to donate towards the costs

    G'day from Australia

    G'day All,

    I have been a long time hockey fan since the mid 90's and I was looking for a site for news on Aussie hockey especially with the big Canada v USA games coming down here this year.

    I'm a long time San Jose Sharks fan and I joined to talk about the great game with fellow hockey fans.

    Welcome aboard. I wish I had known about Australian hockey back when I attended University in Wollongong, I would definitely have tried to watch a game or two.

    Google, looking for some Canada Cup/World Cup info. A forum post from the previous site popped up, and a few clicks later I was here.
