Barry Melrose: Kris Letang Is NHL's Best Player
He just said this on Sportscenter.

Steve Levy: "That's quite a statement"

Reasoning: "He's unbelievable"


sjshark91 10-13-2011 11:44 PM

What a loser.

Ziggy Stardust 10-13-2011 11:44 PM

He'll have a new "best player in the NHL" next week.

Sojourn 10-13-2011 11:44 PM

Unfortunately, that means it can't be true.

KidCanada* 10-13-2011 11:45 PM

That's just... wow. Not surprising he'd say something like that though.

Left Circle OneTimer 10-13-2011 11:45 PM

I just heard it and guaranteed myself i would run unto the forum and see a thread on it already.

I Will Son 10-13-2011 11:46 PM

Melrose is an idiot. Always has been always will be.

"Stamkos is not ready for the NHL yet"

Dumb ass

Letang is great though

Soundgarden 10-13-2011 11:46 PM

I don't think he's even the best defender in the Atlantic.

Cullksinikers 10-13-2011 11:47 PM

Letang is great, but come on.

Falcons93 10-13-2011 11:49 PM

Letang is really good, but Melrose is a jackass.

Hurt 10-13-2011 11:49 PM

He's not even the best player on his TEAM.

airforceones25 10-13-2011 11:49 PM


Dudes credibility continues to spiral downwards. The only thing that's saving him today is his ****ing Mullet!

AugustBurnsRed* 10-13-2011 11:49 PM


Hopefully he means "he has been the NHL's best player in the first couple games of the season"...

Even then.. extremely debatable.

Who is better than him? Pronger? Streit?

Kershaw 10-13-2011 11:50 PM

He said Stamkos wasn't NHL ready and said he wouldn't be a star player right? How people pay him and Mad Mike Milbury to go on TV is mind-boggling.

Left Circle OneTimer 10-13-2011 11:50 PM

In a sense hes right if hes basing off stats :sarcasm:.

Cullksinikers 10-13-2011 11:51 PM

Levy even asked him again just to make sure he was serious.


Play4Miracles* 10-13-2011 11:51 PM

This is why you don't go to a none hockey network for hockey news. Letang is the leagues best d-man in the early going, but he wasnt even the best player on the ice last night, Malkin was.

TMLeafer 10-13-2011 11:52 PM

He might be the best player in the NHL this week.

Offdapost* 10-13-2011 11:53 PM

It's all in the hair man, it's all in the hair

BigTuna49 10-13-2011 11:53 PM

I really didn't think it was possible to hype Letang's rep up that much more but what do you know. Barry freakin' Melrose just did it. :laugh:

Kloparren 10-13-2011 11:58 PM

I'd say he's better than Lidstrom and Chara (from the previous regular season) and I would say the same about Visnovsky and Yandle for last season.

But gotta hand it to Letang for scoring without Crosby and a 100% Malkin this year and also Yandle last year for doing the same on Phx while both being good defensively.

Granlund2Pulkkinen* 10-13-2011 11:58 PM

This just in. Barry Melrose reads Stats Sheets.

Karl with a C 10-14-2011 12:03 AM

Guy's a dumbass

TML g u n n e R s* 10-14-2011 12:04 AM

:laugh: this tops the 28 mins of ice time
