a) You've already admitted to being a Leaf-lover.
b) You said you'd gladly pay $2.5m for 5 extra pounds of muscle (umm salary-cap NHL, Todd).
c) You have long had the reputation of being a bed-wetting “Canuck-hater” in these parts.
d) You're Phaneufishly _ _ _ _ _ _ and your father was a bitch
(trust me, I know about that last part in the same way I knew about you being a Leaf-lover).
OK, I won't comment on all that other crap because it's nothing but that. I'm going to try to be a gentleman and avoid personally attacking u, so we can hopefully put this to an end.
a) I already said I like the Laffs, but u are forgetting the other Cdn teams (Oil, Sens, Flames, Habs, Jets) that I mentioned. Hell, throw in the Nords. I'm not the only one that conveniently leaves out info.
b) and 2 inches taller. *LOL* Seriously, Hammer always seemed to be a bit on the small side for me, especially when he's standing next to somone like Edler. So who would u throw out to play against Thornton, Getzlaf, Kopitar? Edler has the size, but he cracks under pressure. Alberts has the muscle, but I dunno, it might not be pretty. Hammer? He just seems a bit too small to handle that kind of muscle. We have used him in those situations before and he just doesn't seem to matchup well vs those type of guys (ie - trying to play physical vs Lucic). I always felt alot of our D-men are kind of the same, bunch of good two-way average sized guys (ie - Hammer, Bieksa, Tanev, Stanton, even Corrado and Baltard before). We have 2 guys that do have the size (Edler and Alberts), but one is pretty inconsistent and the other is barely a top 6 D-man. I do think a guy like Diane would bolster our blueline in a HUGE way.
I always liked a guy like Bryan Allen or Mike Komasarek as well, just to give our D core a diffent ingredient, something that would complement our team more. Well, we have what we have, we'll just go with our guys and hope for the best. MG's motto.
c) I think u are refering to when u said the Nucks were going to win the cup last season and I said they were not going to. I offered a friendly wager with u with the proceeds going to charity
, but to put it nicely, u declined. Well, think what u want. Seriously, I don't really care and I'm sure no one here really cares either. I have got nothing to prove to u or anyone here.
d) I would luv to have Dion in our lineup, sure, we all got that. In reality, we all know that is NOT going to happen, so there's no real point arguing about it. U made fun of my old man, I made fun of your mom, we're even.
If u wanna take more shots @ me, go ahead. I think I'm getting kind of tired of this sewage and I wasted enuff time in it. Not sure I really care anymore.
