Ah, yes, right of the bat it's obvious you're making lame inferences.

If however reality finally bites and you can see that ain't happening then it's time to lower your sights a little and get as tough a S.O.B. who can skate to take care of the stars on this team.
How low should we set our sights?
Do you think a John Scott type player would be on the ice in a Stanley Cup final game?
We're talking about having players who can be on the ice during a Cup final game, where Daniel Sedin looked like a bitch. If we don't have players who can at least take a regular shift, they're not going to be there when we need him on the biggest stage.

No shit, but too bad that was your only coherent thought.
Canuck-One wrote:Those are the real reasons that MG is now bringing in heavyweights for the tryout and it seems that you aren't happy. Well too bad. I'm sure glad you were never one of my team mates. Hockey is a game of speed, skill, violence and intimidation. You can't intimidate if your toughest players won't fight. Have you ever watched ice dancing? You might just like it.
Stop flexing in the mirror, and ease the strokes. You began with a smattering of smack and then just like a primitive neanderthal, a tough-guy ego reared it's head, gaining confidence as the post went along.
If you're going to bring it, bring something other than "I'm sure glad you were never one of my team mates", or "Have you ever watched ice dancing? You might just like it."
I've physically sparred with tough guys and to say I've verbally sparred with wittier people would be a disservice to the definition of wit.
By the way, I'm not unhappy about Fedoruk and Nolan trying out, and I'm not against having an enforcer on a 2-way deal, I just don't see the same ultimate benefit if we go deep in the playoffs.
For it to matter, we need players who can play, and that's just a fact regardless of whatever lame character attacks anyone wants to use.
