Jes Golbez, the writer of Hockey Rants, has decided to retire from the blogging business. Jes was a very big inspiration for me, in starting up my own blog. His analysis of the Vancouver Canucks was the first realistic approach i had seen, coming from reading stuff on the Canucks.com forum. Jes was also one of the best sources on the internet, for learning about players in European leagues, that one rarely hears of when you only follow the NHL. A good blogger has left the business, and you will be missed Jes.
