Welcome to the boards!

Moving this post to the Water Cooler, which is a place for more abstract discussion and conversation, as opposed to the hockey-specific area that you originally posted in.

Hope you stick around for awhile! Always good to hear from Wings fans overseas!

Hi! And welcome! And you have excellent taste in hockey teams!

It's always nice when we get peeps even from other countries who know their hockey stuff! I'm glad you signed on with us. It'll really pick up this fall. Hang in there!

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Hello, and welcome to our little corner of the world. It's always nice to meet someone from another country who is a Red Wings fan. It shows that Red Wing Nation is everywhere, and that it knows no boundaries. As one of my old friends used to say, "pull up a chair and tell me what's going on". That's the general attitude here.

Welcome to LGW!

You don't need to apologize for starting a thread introducing yourself, and your english is fine. We have a few members from Europe that post here so I think you will fit in and it's great that you have been so personally involved with Hockey yourself. I bet you crossed paths with Olaf Kolzig at some point.


In memory of Steve Shoen, Rest in peace.

thanks. yes i met olaf kölzig once... but i dont know him personally. i know some german skaters like dennis seidenberg from the bruins. i met him at some central scoutings in the past and played a few games against him. but that was like ten years ago...

Welcome to the site, glad to have more German blood here.

By the way, your English is better than my German, so stand proud!
