I'm not saying he sucks at faceoffs. Just that the words "great" and "exceptional" are somewhat overstating things. I mean, there are wingers in that list who have done better.

Your agenda continues to make a fool of you.

You accuse The Dude of trolling for much less.

It's very obvious Mr Sutter has been nothing less than exceptional over the past 2 seasons in the dot.

I never claimed his career numbers were exceptional, Meds has his apples mixed with his orangutans again.
But, but, but, you just said.....

You can't edit something while I'm posting and expect it to stand. :lol:
UMMM... it happens all the time, the onus is on YOU to double-check before clicking "submit".

Speaking of submitting... you lose again! :mex:

And the only thing I edited was to change it from the past 3 seasons to the past 2

... after I remembered Sutter only played 20 games in 2015-16

... and oh yeah I also added the names of the other 12 players in that elite club.

So. Zero. Goalposts. Moved.

From the beginning I have consistently stated Mr Sutter is an exceptional faceoff man.

(no editing there)

(you might want to look up that word in red there Mr Dictionary)

YOU took it upon yourself to change that is to something about "career stats"

... a scarecrow you built and then beat to death with your own dictionary.

Congratulations... you defeated your scarecrow!!! :lol:

Now, if you ever want to have a debate with an actual person, let me know. :thumbs:

All the fanciful gifs in the world aren't gonna get you out of this one, you schmuck you lol...

This is a very weaselly move on your part, trying to make things seem different than they are.

It's quite evident YOU were the only one here today talking about "career numbers".

FFS you quoted my original unedited post for all the world to see... it's still there!!! :lol:

Quick go back and edit it out before someone sees!

Admit it, you fucked up and now you're trying to cover up...

Meanwhile,

Looks like Philly won't be pitchin an offer to Benning for one of his goalies, as they just acquired Mrazek for a conditional 4th this year and a conditional 3rd in '19.


Yeah, was hoping we'd be on the winning end of a goalie deal with the Flyers, but guess that was not to be. With JB's seeming success with some later picks, I definitely wouldn't have minded another 4th and possible 3rd.

:D

Yeah well who knows, the TDD market is exceptionally difficult to judge, so maybe you're right.

I'd love to see it happen, perhaps another goalie gets injured.

Say, did Reimer get yet another concussion at the hands of Big Buff last night? :mex:

No. I didn’t. I replied initially to your statement in which you said he’s great in the dot. You didn’t say shit about career or specific years.


Then you made another post in reply to that.

I didnt care what you said after the fact in another post. Its not the one I was talking about. Maybe you need to learn how to read in context old chum.

My statement stands.

All things pointing to Evander Kane signing here in July? Benning keeps talking about wanting to get bigger/tougher in the forward position. No sectet that Kane would love to be back home. Is Benning gonna getterdun?

Strangelove: I never claimed his career numbers were exceptional

Meds: But, but, but, you just said.... "Read my post, I edited it before you posted that"



Obviously you were implying that I edited out something about "career numbers".

You lied, plain and simple... what I called "weaselly".

And NOW you say "You didn’t say shit about career or specific years".

"didn't"

UMMMMM... exactly.

So why did you put up a lengthy post about how I was wrong about "career numbers".

(so long in fact that I had time to edit it and run an errand before your response) :D

You used your dictionary to explain what "exceptional" means

... and how wrong I was to use "exceptional" in regards to Sutter's "career numbers".

But as you NOW say I "didn’t say shit about career years".

So how was I wrong there Mr Funk N Wagnalls? :mex:

And how could I possibly have "moved the goalposts" if I "didn’t say shit about career years"??

Oh what a tangled web you've woven...

It was never going to happen, we will be needing him to partner/mentor Juolevi.

This is what Jimbro has been saying, and I fully agree.

If the offer was legitimate it might have.

I don't think we need to keep him around to mentor Juolevi. He's solid, and reliable, but maximizing on him is more important. Especially after extending Gudbranson.

I do suspect that Gudbranson's extension was influenced by Tanev's inconsistent health this year, I won't be surprised to see Tanev moved at the draft or in the summer now.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
