    Like the subject says… your arguement is worthless.

    For over a year, I’ve seen you do that left and right to people, my tirades are in jest, usually. I only get like that when people like you go off and do what you’re calling out me for doing. Look in the mirror before you do so. Titans was another one who would do that, and I’ve had my share of squabbles with him.

    It’s not just me who notices how egotistical you are, I talk to people from NHL chat on here that say the same exact things about you that I’m saying. And I talk to people on other messaging programs who also say the same things.

    Instead of reading too far into it… accept the fact I usually do put you in place when I start posting facts and concrete evidence because you never have the arguement after. You ramble on about how I’m wrong because I don’t know this and that, etc… You get all defensive and completely stray away from your arguements due to your lack of knowledge and your ridiculously high ego.

    It’s people like me? I talked to cwthrash, and I’ve never had problems with him. Don’t put words in other people’s mouths. Leaf_Expert is another story, but you’re not one to talk when all you’re doing is swaying people away from this site.

    I never said I was the most objective out there, and if you’ve seen my posts, I’ve made references to cwthrash as being the most objective I’ve seen on this site or any forum I’ve ever posted on. Once again, do not put words in my mouth.

    I need to start thinking logically? I’m not the one who can’t think past my own ego. I accept others opinions. If that wasn’t the case, I’d be like Leaf_Expert, going under different names and bashing people on all different team threads. I’ve been thinking logically, have you?

    He WAS, I never said he IS, because he’s not a prospect anymore, played too many games. He’s got potential that with the right coaching can be utilized. Sutter’s not gonna develop this kid offensively, think of what Patrick Marleau could do in a system like Jaques Martin had up in Ottawa, or Joel Quenneville had in St. Louis… Saprykin’s gonna fall to the same fate that Marleau has, immense potency, no room for unlocking it. It has also to do with the direction the game is going in, the defense-first philosophy, obviously, but still Darryl Sutter isn’t a coach that comes to mind with developing kids offensively. He’s also not getting the right playing time due to that fact. I agree with you on his potency.

    Rick Bowness = horrible coach… mid-90’s Isles… enough said… ask any Islander fan about Bowness.

    I agree on Suchy. Morris plays D, just because he’s not a great great stay at home defender/defensive defender like Adam Foote doesn’t mean he absolutely sucks. I’ve watched him in both Calgary and Colorado, and he’s not bad at all defensively. Tanabe is young, and yes, still has to prove himself. Ference is a nobody, maybe so… but he is a good depth defenseman who’s got size, is decent defensively, and is a good hitter.

    Yes, spending money for them hasn’t worked because they haven’t spent it on the right players. I am in no way, shape, or form saying that they’re a cup contender, to think that, especially in the west, is ridiculous with Colorado, Detroit, Vancouver, and San Jose being there. Calgary I think is a one shot deal, and they won’t go that far again for a while, but they’re legit. When Phoenix spent that money, it wasn’t under the Gretzky regime. I think this time around, they’re looking in a better direction, and balancing out the youth and the veterans. They could use a top-notch prospect or two in their system, but they’ve got good youth. Blake Wheeler has a lot of potential, although that pick surprised me as it did many other people. Gretzky has made good moves behind there.

    As for the coaching, I think you’re right. The goaltending is iffy, I’m not too sure about Boucher.

    I must have lit a fire under someone’s ass, becausen now you’ve got your head straight.

    I would know about Nedved… being a Ranger fan and what not, and knowing how his work ethic is what holds him down. He’s like Jagr, he’s got that superstar ego and works hard only when he wants to because he knows he has talent. If only Nedved played hard every night, what he could be.

    Comrie’s proven that he can be a very servicable #2 center. I agree, he’s nothing defensively, but he’s a good playmaker who can also put up 20 goals and at best can put up 60-70 points.

    I agree on Boucher, a lot of people all of a sudden have him up there as an elite goaltender becuase of his shutout streak record. He had a solid rookie year, and after that hasn’t been able to come not even half way close to what he was then. I’ve said it before, the goaltending issue is very iffy. Unless Johnson can prove that he’s NHL starter material, which I don’t think he is, this team’s achilles heel will be exposed when teams start getting shots on net and traffic in front or anywhere near the net.
