My name is Peter and I am the new Staff Writer here at The Octopus Thrower.
First a little bit about me. I grew up in Metro Detroit and went to my first Red Wings game at 6 months old. At a year and a half I was fitted for my first pair of skates and have been playing ever since. In addition to playing, I have coached and refereed at various levels, and currently live in Dublin, Ireland.
Now that you know a little bit about me, I will be interested in getting to know you, the reader, better as time goes on.
As for Kevin’s views about Samuelsson, guess what? I will take him all day over Hudler. Would you rather have a player that is 5’10″, slow, and misses the net or a guy who is 6’2″, average speed, and misses the net? Plus, Samuelsson is being paid a cool 1 million dollars less. Sounds like a no brainer to me.
I am looking forward to bringing my passion and hockey analysis to The Octopus Thrower. You can follow me on twitter at @KinFin
Now start the season already!
