Yes, he was on the radar of many scouts - and many teams. He was a two year captain of Michigan, and Berenson talked him up to everyone. He scored two goals in Each CCHA final in 2002 (FState) and 2003 (MState). I know because I was at each. He was on the NCAA Western All Tourney team in 2002 and 2003. He was the CCHA Defensive forward of the year. He had a difficult first couple of years with injuries (Total reconstructive Knee Surgery) and I think a Torn ACL (might have been MCL).
Like I said, I said nothing critical of you. I would think that you might wish to learn something new, so you wouldn't make a blanket statement without having the information. I know I would.
Maybe you have to stop being so defensive,
A few clues that I was busting your chops "SOOOOOO ANNOYING"
and a big grin smiley face.
And Park#2 FYI, I don't need to grow up, I did that a real long time ago, as I am in my 40's, have raised my own kid as a single MOM. I have had the same job for the last 18 years and plan on retiring in about 7 years and guess what, I can afford to retire before I am 50.
So lets talk about making assumptions. You made enough of your own in your post about me.
I know it is difficult at times to get emotion across in words, without the voice inflection that is required to show emotion. Many words typed can mean different things depending on how they are said. (Dam, I feel like I am talking to my kid, "it's not what you say, it's how you say it"
So Parky just so you know "I WAS JOKING, KIDDING, BUSTING YOUR CHOPS"
You ASSUMED that I was serious. You also assumed that I had to grow up. But unlike you, who has no knowledge of me or who or what I know, you still reached a conclusion. I made a conclusion based on the info I had available at the time about Ortmeyer and I reasoned that he was not on scouts radars exactly for the reasons you stated.
By the way, when you have been here for awhile, you will get to know the personalities of the people here. Some of us will not insult posters in any way, I was just trying to show some humor. You have provided alot of good info, but why should we believe everything as gospel that you say. We have no clue as to your background, your involvement in anything hockey related and you just pop on here, recently and expect me to be taught by you. I am willing to learn and get info but please stop being defensive when people come back at you.
Sorry if you didn't see through the type that I was busting your chops..
