I was at Central when you first joined and you came in with the nice guy routine. I guess you've decided that you're now an established poster and can be a bully. Ah well. Some people are like that.
How's about we get back on track with the Doan discussion? I'm starting to think RD is actually more on topic than all of you combined.
I can pretty much guarantee that I've been through at least double the internet/pre-Internet/BBS flame wars all of you have participated in put together, but no one wants to hear about it. Same thing goes for bringing your CC baggage over here. It's old news and no one cares about your age-old beefs from a long-defunct site. It's irritating as hell (not capitalized for RD's pleasure) to see threads get completely derailed by the same crap on yet another site I'm trying to lurk quietly(-ish).
Stick to the topic, and please, for the sake of all of us casual observers, take your personal bullshit elsewhere... like Facebook, where you can critique each other less anonymously and your wives can give you shit about it.

The point of the comparison, was to highlight the absurdity of what Shane Doan has been made out to be over the past 2 months.
This is a guy who has never put his team past the 1st round until his 16th season.
This is a guy who has never scored more than 31 goals in his entire career.
This is guy who is being mistaken for the second coming of Brendan Shanahan.
I suppose SL, as always, you're either king of hyperbole, or you just can't quite grasp it.
Doan is Messier, Sundin, and Demitra. He's done as an impact player and ought not to be paid like one well into his late 30s. He's a 55 point player that wants to make 85 point cash.
Not good value.

ALL of them??
Please tell me you meant all EXCEPT FOR the comparison to Raymond!
I don't think GMMG would give Doan more that Sedins.
How would you feel about Doan at $6mil-per over 4 years?

NHL Player--------------NHL Player
Western Conference---Western Conference
Right Wing--------------Left Wing
Okay so that's 7 out of 8
First 330 career games
Doan (Goals): 48
Raymond (Goals): 70
Doan (Assists): 65
Raymond (Assists): 86
Yeah Strangelove...epitome of absurdity.
Comparing Doan to Rory Fitzpatrick is a stretch...and the epitome of absurdity might be comparing Shane Doan to say...Hope Solo.
Just say no to Shane Doan.
