Perhaps you can explain who "you guys" is then...

Seems most of the group disagree with the sentiment.


Was referencing there being nothing to talk about.

For some reason when I write I seem to offend people fairly consistently with out meaning to.

Not so much in real life.

Perhaps I need to (smile) more :)

Well I have known you to be a prick for well over a decade now so no worries here.

:D

In all seriousness you are generally on the money (imesho) with your commentary and make your statements fairly black and white which I guess some folks take as arrogant.

As Doc says, whatever.

I don't find you arrogant Tate, I just figured you have something against me.

See that's what I'm talking about...

Never had anything against you, at all, ever...

And yet, you think otherwise.

Wierd.

I kind of get the same thing on email and text messages, but never in person.

Still in the denial stage.

You won't improve yourself until you admit you are an asshole.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

It's all good, Potter knows he's an asshole.

He's just trying to set folks up with all this don't-mean-to-offend bullshit. :wink:

I know this because I once read a book on assholes! :D

I for one am looking forward to training camp this year. Will be interesting to see how Kassian plays at 'Canuck level fitness.'

He's still super young obviously, but I do hope we reach a point where Kassian "takes the next step" while the twins are still at their peak.

Yeah, if Kass can become a top 9 player, be a consistent physical presence and score like 10-15 goals, it'll be a great year for him.

So long as AV gives him a little bit of leeway to learn rather than making him ride the pine immediately upon any mistake, I think he will develop just fine into the top 9. Just not sure that he will amount to the power forward game changer people are dreaming about. Hope I am wrong, but I guess only time will tell.
