As far as looking up salary cap figures, monitoring the transaction sheet, and making obvious comments about players age in relation to their cap-hit, you may be the best poster here. You're a real wunderkind when it comes to the C.B.A. Since you've "left", I definitely miss having to use Google News myself.
But I wouldn't give yourself too much credit. In my experience, you've showed little to no actual knowledge of the game or ability to provide actual insights into the way the game is currently being played or has historically been played.
The truth is that at best, you're just a guy with too much time on his hands that regularly mistakes having accurate information with having useful/insightful information. Even more regularly, you mistake these boards for a hotbed of hockey-gurus and not a place where fans just want to talk about last nights action. Get-a-grip and ditch the arrogance, there isn't a place for it here because no one else is pretending to be a know-it-all or a sports-writer as you regularly pretend to be.
Maybe you can't help but revel in the minutiae of sports-gossip, but it's obvious to me that you can't see the forest for the trees.
I'm not going to speak for anyone else, but I can tell you with 100% certainty that I couldn't care less if you post 100 times a day like you used to, or never come back. It's my belief that anyone with real knowledge of the game isn't being informed by NAS on the boston.com boards.
