Every season, we’ve followed a pretty simple pattern in covering college hockey: Hit UND hard, cover the WCHA thoroughly and touch on other national stories here and there.
But this upcoming season, everything will be different with the new leagues.
As always, we will hit UND coverage hard. I’m also planning to be more thorough in covering the NCHC as well. Maybe expanding that part from previous years.
My question for readers of the blog and the Herald newspaper is: What exactly do you guys want to see?
How much should we dip into the Big 10 and the WCHA? I know that fans are interested in what’s happening at Minnesota (whether they admit it or not), Wisconsin and Bemidji State. I’m thinking we will keep standings of all three leagues regularly in the paper.
How much are you interested in what’s happening with other NCHC teams? Do you think it’s a good idea to expand coverage of that, too?
Right now is an outstanding time to change several things in the paper, the blog and the website for several reasons: 1. Because of the new leagues, 2. We are having a changing of the guard at the Herald with a bunch of new editors (our new head editor started Monday and we’re already started doing travel budget stuff, which is very good news; our new online editor is all for new ideas for the website like the videos, etc.).
Hopefully you will see several changes during the summer (for the better). But a lot will be based on the feedback I get here. So, let me know.
What do you like? What would you like to see changed? Do you want more of something? Less of something? Let’s hear it.
