Hi Alaney2k, I noticed you've edited the Dundas Real McCoys, Brantford Blast, Whitby Dunlops and Hamilton Steelhawks pages in the Allan Cup Hockey League, are you familiar with the other 2 teams that are missing? Stoney Creek Generals and Thorold Athletics - would you be able to contribute to their pages? Thanks a lot!

Changes/expand on the MUTO article?[edit]

I've noticed you've contributed to the MUTO article in the past. Given that the MonsterVerse is officially a thing now and the MUTO's from Godzilla 2014 aren't the only MUTO's in that universe, should we expand the MUTO article by adding MUTO's from Kong: Skull Island? You know, should we make the article reference all the MUTO's in the MonsterVerse so far rather than just have it be a character page exclusively for the 2014 MUTO's? What are your thoughts? Armegon (talk) 20:37, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

@Armegon: I don't know. I think at some point, a "list of" article should be done. The MUTO article looks pretty good right now. The new monsters might be only minor characters. We could start a section in the MonsterVerse article and see if we have content to expand into another article or work on a merge. I've made a navbox for MonsterVerse and start linking these things together. Alaney2k (talk) 15:02, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
You're probably right. Right now there's not enough information to expand the MUTO article. Although, I think a "list of MUTO's" for the MonsterVerse article might be beneficial.Armegon (talk) 05:23, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Wayne Thomas, Hockey Player/Coach/Manager[edit]

New account user on Wikipedia. Could you let me know what you think about adding the following in some form to Wayne Thomas, hockey player/coach/manager? Looking for guidance. Thank you.

Robert Wayne Thomas born October 9, 1947, in Ottawa, Ontario, is a former professional ice hockey goaltender who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, and New York Rangers. After 45 consecutive years in professional hockey as a player, coach, and team executive, Thomas retired from the NHL in July, 2015.

Playing Career: Prior to his professional career, he played his last amateur hockey for the University of Wisconsin under the late Bob Johnson. There he played two years of varsity hockey, culminating in the team's first appearance in the Frozen Four in Lake Placid, NY in 1970. He left Wisconsin to play professionally after his Junior year of college. Thomas played parts of 3 years in the Montreal Canadiens' minor league system, winning the American Hockey League championship trophy, The Calder Cup, in 1972 with the Nova Scotia Voyageurs. The following year he played 6 games for the Voyageurs before playing his first NHL game with the Canadiens when he recorded a shutout against the Vancouver Canucks. He recorded an 8-1 regular season record, but did not play during the playoffs as the Canadiens won the Stanley Cup. After 3 seasons in Montreal he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in June of 1975 for a first round draft pick. During his two years in Toronto he was selected to play in the 1976 All Star game and recorded the win. Following his 2 years in Toronto he concluded his playing career with the New York Rangers in 1981.

Coaching and Executive Career: After retiring as a player, he was hired by New York Rangers GM Craig Patrick and Head Coach Herb Brooks as one of the first goaltending coaches in professional hockey. Brooks changed his role to assistant coach with emphasis on goaltending in the beginning of the 1982 season. He remained in that position with the Rangers until the end of the 84-85 season. Thomas then became the head coach of the Interntional League Salt Lake Golden Eagles in 1985 where he spent two seasons. In his second year in Salt Lake City, the Golden Eagles won the IHL Turner Cup Championship and Thomas was awarded the Commissioner's Trophy as the IHL Coach of the Year. In 1986 he returned to the NHL as assistant coach of the Chicago Blackhawks for one season. The following season he was hired by the St. Louis Blues as their minor league head coach of the IHL Peoria Rivermen. In 1991, the Blues brought him to St. Louis as an assistant coach to Head Coach Brian Sutter. His area of concentration was goaltending. In 1993, Thomas left the Blues to become Assistant to the General Manager and Assistant Coach with the San Jose Sharks. He remained in that role until being named Assistant General Manager during the 1995-1996 season. He was named Vice President of the Sharks in 2001. He remained Vice President and Assistant General Manager until his retirement in 2015.

Personal Life: Thomas has a Bachelor's of Science degree in Physical Education from the University of Wisconsin. Wayne and his wife, Barb, have 2 daughters, Gretchen Thomas Kane(Tim) and Abra Thomas Larson (Hans) and 3 grandchildren, Erik Larson, Elsje Larson, and Harrison Kane.

@Pschneider3n3rgy: Always welcome more info to the encyclopedia. Go ahead and edit. And do look for references! Alaney2k (talk) 03:58, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

MonsterVerse template[edit]

Navigation template should only include full articles because they exist to be bidirectional. Therefore they should not include redirects and no links to sections becuse they can't fill out the link in the template. The template should be placed in the article and therefore black out the link, which gives the reader context when looking at it. There also shouldn't be two links to the same article, the article you link to is a redirect to an article which is already in the template, therefore utterly useless and unneeded in the template.★Trekker (talk) 14:48, 15 March 2017 (UTC) See here

@*Treker: Thank you for explaining. Please always do that in an edit summary, then it does not seem arbitrary. Alaney2k (talk) 14:54, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm sorry. I should have been more clear in my edit summaries. Cheers.★Trekker (talk) 14:57, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
