I brought up the thread because somebody called me an idiot for posting this stuff on here on the official boards and then never responded to my responses. I thought if someone mentioned that I Posted on this board they would have posted it here as well. I figured it was you who posted the stuff on the official boards as well.
Oh well, at least the team won't be a joke this year like the last two years. That is something we can all agree on. I guess if it weren't for people like me refusing to drink the Kool Aide last year and not attending games the team wouldn't have bothered to sign guys like Kozlov, Poti, Nylander.
Pothier is a completely solid #4. He has played quite well in the preaseason.
Mcphee not signing a center last season was a shrewd move. With Backstrom coming through the pipeline, it would have been wasted money. Our young players were still raw. Centers were signed for this season because our young players have gelled and are mature enough to warrant spending money outside the organization.
And hey, I'm sure not signing a center last season helped us get Alzner, who will surely be a very important part of this organization.
