Silver Seven owns up to the posts we've deleted over the years

Oddly enough, this is the photo on his hockey card from the 2010 season - Bruce Bennett

In light of the Goalie Guild's recent apology, we need to acknowledge some of our own deleted posts.

There was a big stir in the blogosphere recently as it came to light that Justin at the Goalie Guild had deleted several old posts that, with the benefit of hindsight, did not look so good (like saying he didn't think future Vezina winner Sergei Bobrovsky would work out well in Columbus).

Justin apologized, and it's time we did the same ourselves. After all, we've also been guilty of trying to cover up our tracks once or twice, and it's not something we're proud of. But in the interest of transparency, it's only right that we compile a list all of those posts we made over the years that we deleted once it turned out that their basic premise was undeniably false.
