Have I ever denied it? I have said it and I will say it again for you Mr. Selective memory with the the great venomous, antagonistic wit that you so proudly stick your chest out with - Yes, I had torn strips out of Hodgson left, right and centre, and yes, I was completely surprised by his turnaround after I had completely given up on him.
But who the fuck cares what I think, thought and think of him now, the bottom line is, your Lord and Savior Mike Gillis fucking dropped the ball and traded a good young, skillful centerman for a fucking 4th line enigmatic Dustin Penner slash Jim Sandlak.
Is the centre position a much coveted position Doc, or do you think we need players to fight Milan Lucic and Dustin Byfuglien instead?
The bottom line is, Mike is a good hockey executive, I will give him that, good on the back end stuff in managing a corporation but he couldn't build an ON ICE winner from scratch to save his ugly fucking ass. I can't wait til the great core players and two excellent goalies that previous management provided him on a silver platter have burned out here in Vancouver and there days are done, WHICH IS NEAR, I really can't wait to see all of you finally wake up and say, "shite, Mike Gillis is a shitty GM"
Dude, maybe when you actually can tell us about something you were right about, maybe then you'll have a leg to stand on.
What will you do if Kassian turns into the second coming of Bertuzzi (circa WCE days)? Will you just retract and say that you are pleasantly surprised that you were wrong about Kassian and happy he turned a corner and developed into a top 6 forward? And will you also say how happy you are that you were wrong about Gillis and that he can actually make a good hockey move?
I'm not saying that this will or will not happen. I'm just wondering what you will do if it does. Are you willing to say with absolute certainty that it won't?
I'm starting to wonder if you disappeared from the old CC for a time because you became a broken record there too.....
You were wrong about Hodgson. Admit it. Move on. Don't try and sugar coat it and deflect from the fact that you've been wrong before and are not necessarily right in the here and now either.
