Superficially that would make the Gill signing curious. But the addition of Gill is simply to fill in the subtraction of Klee/Richardson (someone to match up with the other teams power fowards/a physical presence in their own end). Gill is more skilled that Klee or Richardson, thus he is an improvement in that department.
McKee at 4 million (wow 4 million a season for a guy who blocks shots, I like McKee but not at 4 million) or Willie Mitchell (14 points a season at best) doesn’t fit JFJ’s plan.]]>
do you realize that you have just put about 600 of the 700-900 NHL players who laced up their skates last year as ‘not producing’? – i.e. those who didnt average a point-a-game. Antropov ranked 224th out of 870 NHL players in points-per-game.
there are DIFFERENT LEVELS of production and people get paid accordingly. a point-every-two-games IS PRODUCTION, and production for a guy making a million bucks.
you have to open your eyes … maybe read a hockey book, look at the stats page and look at the histories that have been written. its hard to believe i had to clarify what i did above.
i have gone to plenty of leaf games and watched antropov – and i dont know why you would assume that i havent. pretty dumb on your part.
overrated? look, again i cant believe i am saying this, but every player on the leafs is overrated or has the spotlight on him 24/7. its just the way it is in T.O.
is Antropov a great player? no, not really. would i be sad if the leafs traded him? nope. do i think the criticisms of him are over-the-top and reflect a bad case of group-think? yup. and looking at the comments you have posted recently, do i give a rat’s ass on what you think about anything hockey related? um, no.
as for your last remark, thankfully you are not the GM … or a comedian.]]>
