30 NHL Fans in 30 Days - survey


Hello, hockey fans! I need 30 fans -- one from EVERY NHL market -- to help me out. I'm looking to profile a fan in each market for a "30 NHL Fans in 30 Days" feature on this blog leading up to the new season. Each entry will include a brief interview about what the team has done in the offseason (trades, acquisitions, hires), looking at their season ahead, and then highlighting a fan - from each market. 

I'm giving away two prizes to go along with this project!


Update: We're very proud to announce that one of the prizes will be courtesy of Gongshow Gear -- the ultimate in hockey lifestyle clothing. One of the thirty fans profiled in "30 fans in 30 days" will receive a T-shirt or hat courtesy of Gongshow.



Our second prize, which will be awarded among those who participated but were not chosen for the "30 fans" profile, will be a $25 gift certificate courtesy of IceJerseys.com. IceJerseys.com is a great source for jerseys, especially if you're looking for vintage, international or movie replicas!

Teams still needing fan responses/representation from :
  Sabres
  Predators
  Islanders

  Lightning
  Jets (Thrashers)
