Paul Palmer of ESPN said ...

"Just wanted to send a huge thank you to you for a great site! It is an amazing collection of all things hockey. I do not think there is a topic in there that you missed. I produce a nightly hockey show in the States and find myself stopping by A-Z each day looking for some little bit of information that I can pickup. It is a great educational tool and a very neat site for hockey freaks like myself."


Dick Wielhouwer from Canada said ...

"excellent work!"


E J Zeman Jr, a h
ockey fan from the USA rated the A to Z as excellent but said ...
"How come there is no information on former Flyer and Blackhawk Lou Angotti? He was the only player I looked up ... Otherwise, from what I saw and looked at in about :10, you have a very thorough site!"
(Editor: we have rectified the omission of Lou Angotti. Thanks for pointing that out. We may eventually get every player into the A to Z, so until we do, we are happy to add missing players when we are notified.)


Adele, a Researcher/Historian from New Zealand said ...

"Wicked"


Anne Davis, a first time visitor from England said ...

"It was amazing to see this site for the first time and see my late father's name included, I'm not sure you have the right club for him but I will check my facts and update if necessary, but keep up the good work, it's made my day!"


Mark Sherman, a first time visitor from Canada said ...

"great site. tons of info and great place to find old team logos!"


Mike Hunter, a speedway fan from Scotland said ...

"This is the best sporting website I have ever seen. I searched in Google for 'Falkirk Lions' because I had some programmes, and found this magnificent piece of work. My own sport is speedway but we have nothing of this standard."


Vanessa, a young fan from Australia said ...

"This is a really good site I have always loved ice hockey and thought I knew everything about it but then I came here and I found out even more cool stuff I would have otherwise never known."


Bob Cafazzo, a first time visitor from the USA said ...

"Very impressed with your site. I never knew it existed and I'm so glad I happened upon it. Quickly added to my favorites. I'd like to see longer comments on some of the entries. I have lots of the old logos you are missing and would be glad to help out if needed. Thank you for compiling such a great hockey site" (Editor: glad to hear that you like the site, will try to get more anecdotes for the entries and will take you up on your offer.)


'Watcher', a newspaper reporter and frequent visitor from England said ...

"A full search facility would be nice." (Editor: just to show that we listen to what you say - we have changed the in-built search for one supplied by Google. The results seem to be an improvement. Let me know what you think the next time you try the Search page at the A to Z.)

... and added ... "Some biographies lack detail." (Editor: any help gratefully accepted)
Hockey 
Editor on a good day!


Brandon, a hockey fan from the USA said ...

"Very impressive and certainly looks like it will become the premier hockey resource website on the internet. The site already has lots of excellent in depth information that is hard to find anywhere else."


Rik, a Sheffield Steelers fan and first time visitor from England said ...

"What a great one stop shop for hockey facts!"


Dineo Motsapi, a hockey fan from South Africa said ...

"It is very interesting. It is excellent."

"This site is awesome, it has every thing I want to know about hockey."

Cillian Larkin, a
player and regular visitor from Ireland said ...
"This is a good, informational site.  Great job!"


Mike Barnes, a hockey fan from the USA said ...

"I was trying to confirm the fact that former NY Rangers goaltender John Davidson (and now superb Olympic announcer) began his NHL career with St. Louis. You guys had the goods!"


Richard Elliott, a regular visitor from England said ...

"What a great site! I used to play as an under 11 about 6 years ago until injury forced my parents to keep me from my passion. Catching up on old rules and player info is good, and this website has really got me back in the mood for playing!"


Pierre Wilson, a fan and first time visitor from Canada said ...

"It's is an alright web site for hockey facts"


Mikael Åström, a fan and first time visitor from Sweden said ...

"Hey! A tremendous good site! But i feel a kind of pity when you haven´t got all the names of the teamplayers in for example Checkoslavakia and Sweden. Checkoslavakia had for an instance a good goalkeeper named Jiri Holicek (about the same time as Tretjak in USSR-team). Sweden is famous for all it´s good goalies. Nothing or almost nothing is told about them! But I am sure that this is all about having problems getting player information from certain countries. I will try to help You whether I can or not. Please give me an e-mail address that I can use to help or inform You!"


TJS, a senior fan and first time visitor from the USA said ...

"Condensed RULES was absolutely great, and answered my 3 questions. Thank you."


Andi Ashton, a regular
visitor from Northern Ireland said ...
"A very good site and has been a great help to me and my son."


Paul Graham, a fan & first time visitor from Canada thought we had a good site but said ...

"you missed Forbes Kennedy..come on now better effort on research" 
(Editor: Forbes Kennedy and his brother Jamie Kennedy now added)


A regular visitor from the USA said ...

"This site is a tremendous resource for hockey fans looking for information obscure and otherwise. Where else can find information on the 1999-2000 New York Islanders, Italian League champions through 1999-2000 and the size of the arena in Edinburgh? Every time I visit the A to Z Encyclopaedia of Ice Hockey, I discover something new and interesting!"


Sarossy Attila,
a Hungarian fan living in Romania said ...
"I'm sorry that I not understand all, because I'm a Hungarian from Romania and don't speak well English. Second thing: fan of NY Rangers can't buy posters or any propag. things, shirts, books about NYR. Our City team - Sport Club Miercurea-Ciuc is champion in Romania, thank you"
[editor : I think you did great with your English - I'll pass your e-mail address to www.ta-sports.net  and ask them if they can help you.]


Frank Papin, manufacturer of goalie/player equipment, said ...
"I was very impressed by the variety about the hockey business."


Kenny Escobar, an
Off-ice Official from the USA, said ...
"It is good."


Larry Swatuk, a Canadian living in Botswana said ...

"Between the internet and satellite television, I don't feel 'starved' for the sport, but I do sorely miss playing, hanging out with my nephews at the rink, shovelling the pond, and all that stuff.  I was having a discussion with another Canadian who is here visiting.  He said we hadn't won a World Championship since 1961; I said I know that we won a World Championship a few years ago.  So, I turned to Google and found your site and, well, that was about two hours ago! I LOVE THIS SITE but, on the downside, you guys make me terribly homesick!"


Katia, a Russian fan and first time visitor from Khabarovsk, Eastern Siberia said ...

"Great site but a little not quit precise. I'm a AMUR Hockey Club fan. I was surprised to find it on your site."
(Editor: Katia has kindly given us an update on the team so that we are now more accurate. Many thanks.)


Raymond Moczulski, a fan from the USA said ...

"An excellent site ... concise and entertaining info"


Glenn, a player in Australia
said ...
"I loved this site, I have always wanted to know more about the Hall of Fame - it's just a pity that I wont get to see it until I go overseas."


Mika Kallio, a merchandise manufacturer from Finland, who rated the site as 'Very Good'
said ...
"In category Facts, Figures & Lists, the statistics of indoor rinks is far but correct, you should use the official IIHF statistics. For example in Finland are 212 indoor rinks, you have not the half of that in your list. In the list of European top arenas - the Color Line Arena in Hamburg, Germany is missing, over 13.000 seats for ice-hockey. Also Sport Palace in St.Peterburg has a capacity of over 10,000 seats."


Dennis @ HockeyRefs.com said ...

"I really enjoy reading the information on this Web Site. Perhaps you could include more information on the officiating aspect of the game. Also, have you considered giving the site a face-lift?"


James Sinclair, a player from Canada said ...

"A great site, anything and everything is here."


Peter M Gemmink, a hockey fan from the Netherlands said ...

"The website that I have been looking for, for such a long time. Now I've found it I'll bookmark it as a favourite. I'll recommend it to everyone who wants to know more, and I mean more, about ice-hockey. The most beautiful sport I've ever seen and played! Keep up the good work."


Scott Wheelwright, a hockey fan from the USA said ...

"I'm amazed at the depth and breadth of information on the National Teams Page.  Excellent!!"


Cindy W, a hockey fan from South Africa said ...

"It was a great site thanks but you definitely have to update your records on South Africa. I have a friend on the SA woman's hockey team and there is no updated info on them.  But thanks the site was great."
[editor : we're always looking for help from around the globe - any volunteers?]


Ron Baldwin, of All Sports Teamwear in Canada said ...

"As a fan, player who has played in North America, Europe and Asia, as well as a manufacturer of a newly designed custom sports bag, I have found this site to be most interesting and informative. If there is anything I can do to contribute to the success of the site I would be pleased to assist where possible. Keep up the great work"


Conrad Wilcox, a fan from Wales said ...

"Good all round site for the fans of ice hockey worldwide."

"I love this website! It is the best! I love the trivia and the Hall of Fame page!"

"This is a great site and a great resource. It is challenged by the need to keep it up to date and I'm afraid it does not always meet this challenge."


Sarah from the USA, a researcher, said ...

"I think that this is one of the best hockey sites. Keep up the good work!"


Fats Van Den Raad from England, a Nottingham off-ice official, said ...

"An excellent reference site that I come back to time and time again. I will definitely recommend any hockey fan to bookmark this site."

"It is the best ice hockey site ever."

"I have a hobby of collecting business cards from all hockey teams (547 so far - plus 422 baseball, 104 basketball, 48 british football, 70 american football, 31 rugby, 15 lacrosse and 86 american soccer). I have found A to Z a great source for my hobby. Thank you."


Jeffrey Tangey from the USA said ...

"AMAZING. A fan can learn more from one visit to this site than I ever thought possible. It seems almost all of your corners of covered. Well done."


Matt, a junior player from England said ...

"WAYNE GRETZKY ROX!!!! he a total babe!!!!"


Joseph Altwasser, a Canadian player living in Japan said ...

"Great!"


Keith, a hockey parent from the USA said ... 

"After all the dictionaries I visited, you had more information then most, good for you. But I still cannot find the definition for the following acronyms: “GP”, “GA”, “SA”, “GAA”, “SV”, “SV%”, SO”, “TOI”, “PIM”. Can you please help?" [editor : GP = Games Played, GA = Goals Against, SA = Save Average, GAA = Goals Against Average, SV = Saves, SV% = Save Percentage, SO = Could be used for Shots On Goal (normally SOG) or Shots in Overtime.  TOI - Seen on some hockey statistics - means Time On Ice. PIM represents Penalties In Minutes and is used in statistics to display a player's accumulated minutes of penalties. The last two are already in the A to Z on the To and Pi pages. I will add the others to the A to Z.]


Robert Hinton, a regular visitor from England said ... 

"All in all, an excellent hockey web site."


Desiree Barnes, a player from Canada said ...
