Jacques, MacIntyre, O'Marra... yep, we definitely have too many forwards. There are some tough choices there.
Steve Tambellini may feel he has too many forwards, but here at Copper & Blue we can never have too many talented writers. In the last 10 days we've seen the addition of two writers: Lisa McRitchie on August 20th, who has been doing splendid work as BlueBelle on HFBoards and now does regular weekend updates for Copper & Blue, and Neal Livingston on August 23rd, Copper & Blue's correspondent covering the Oilers' farm team in Oklahoma.
Last but not least, it's my great pleasure to announce a third new writer for Copper & Blue: Jaysen Knight, formerly of the fantastic Nothing 2 See Here.
If you're a long-time follower of the Oilogosphere, you're likely familiar with Jaysen's work. He's an outside-the-box thinker and an analytical mind who is going to fit in very well here. He's also as draft-obsessed as the rest of the staff, and did some tremendous work around the 2010 draft (and for previous years). If you aren't familiar with his work, take a brief wander through his archives - he talks about things like risk management and a lot of his stories hold up well with a few years in the rearview mirror.
I'm delighted to see Jaysen sign on here at Copper & Blue, and I'm sure that's a sentiment shared by our readers.
