Horcoff? ... I wouldn't be promoting anybody you had to pour 4 1/2 mins of PP time and give ES ice time with your best wingers for a 40% chance that he scores more than 50 points as an offensive success story. You might as well just throw your money away in a slot machine, you'll win occasionally there too.
Your homerism is blatantly pathetic. Yes, you are correct that Fisher has never had an offensive season that was as successful as Poni's 61 pts. Don't you realize that the exact numbers that you used are a discredit to your own point?

And Horcoff's offensive game is so vastly superior to Fisher's that you are again correct that it is an unfair comparison. Horc's breakout season was 73 pts. So far Fisher's best is 48 pts. Horc's best pro-rated season was last year at 77 pts. Fisher's best pro-rated season was 58 pts. In both situations you are talking about a 20 pt difference!

I actually like Fisher a lot, but to paint him as an offensive player that is on par with Horcoff, or even Poni, is just wrong. He is a good two way forward. He just doesn't have the skills or the numbers to back up the argument that he is/can be an offensive player.
