Thank you WinnipegJet


Recommended Posts

It is always sad when we lose a member of the moderating/admin team. In this case, we are losing our longest serving moderator and administrator WinnipegJet. Unfortunately, due to his work and time restraints he had to step down. He will still be posting and giving us his insight on the Habs as he has done in the past.

I am personally sad that he won't won't be part of our group anymore. WinnipegJet is the only person from this forum that I've met in person. We played golf, drank scotch and smoked cigars together. He is an outstanding person and I wish him nothing but the very best in life as he pursues his goals.

We proudly retire his jersey in honour of his many years of service and countless hours he spent in making this forum what it is today.

Please join me in thanking him for his commitment, dedication and hard work.

Sorry to see you go, Jet, but don't be a stranger :). I've enjoyed reading your posts since a few years before I first signed up for the forum. It's a combination of insightful posts like yours and the general forum decorum (which I'm sure you've contributed to over your years as a moderator) that led me to sign on in the first place.

Speaking of sticking around, is AK-1 still around?

I still assume choosing a mod is like choosing a pope!

AK-1 is still a member/retired jersey here, although I haven't seen much of him lately. I'm sure he'll be back around at some point.

Choosing a mod is excactly like choosing a Pope, except that we use blue smoke.

Best Wishes to you WinnipegJet. Hope to see you posting here. I've been quite busy or else I would post more often, and with the playoffs just about here, I probably will post to see what is happening.

Aw, man. :(

We'll miss having you around all the time, but I hope you can keep posting when time allows. Thanks for your moderating! You, like all of the mod crew here, are top notch and keep it a wonderful place that's fun for everyone.

All the best to you in the future!

Wow, end of an era for sure. Pretty much set the bar for moderating and high level posting when I signed up in 2005 and managed to maintain that level for all this time. It was fun moderating with him, it was fun talking to him on MSN messenger way back in the day lol and I've flat out learned a lot from him over the years.

Much respect. Hopefully you keeps on posting when you have the time.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone - they're awesome to hear. But honestly, the reason why I stayed on so long was because this was such an enjoyable and insightful place to talk hockey - a testament to the great membership base here. My career and personal commitments have ramped up, but I'll still be around to post and chat when I can. So, you certainly haven't see the last of me. :lol:

Also - GHC is a big-time ringer on the golf course. Pretty sure he blew me out that day.
