Morning Skate: A note, and forward

Into the weird offseason we go!

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Boston Bruins at Tampa Bay Lightning Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Well folks, we move forward from the Bizarro Playoffs into the Bizarro Offseason.

It’s hard to call the end to the Bruins’ season anything but disappointing, and yet, at the same time, you also can’t really argue that they deserved a better fate.

We’ll get into some offseason content in the coming weeks, but for now, we’ll probably keep it light aside from news or any other relevant info.

On behalf of the rest of the staff, I sincerely thank you for reading and interacting on the site. It was nice to see a bunch of new names in the comments this season, while also seeing the old guard.

Toward the end of this weird run, game threads were regularly approaching or exceeding 500 comments, which is great.

We certainly weren’t going to set any traffic records know, the state of the world, but I think our team did a great job balancing things and keeping posts coming.

As you know, none of us do this as a “real job.” Having said that, it’s a lot easier to write posts and share opinions when you’re generating readers and good discussion, and we have you to thank for that.

As always, I welcome any feedback and suggestions for improvement as we move forward. This site can be a whole bunch of work sometimes, but I’m still having fun, so let’s keep going.
