But again who is arguing that point? How many times have i said that i don't think either player is a guy who does that? How many times have i said i wouldn't build around either? You're arguing with me a point i am not making here.



Who is defending poti? I've never once favored or defended poti. the thread was about york and quickly it turned into a lamenting about york thread. I've even said i wouldn't trade york for poti. What I HAVE said is that York is overrated. But no one seems to be replying to that, instead i'm talking about a point i never even made.



And that's a difference in opinion there. I think a player who drops off that dramatically, especially in terms of goals has a big flaw attatched to him. i never said i'd take it over poti's or that poti is better, but i am not going to get wishy washy over a player with that big of a flaw. it's like fletch said, effort is great but if he wears down than he wears down. He is a nice/good second or third line player but the amount of coversation he gets is a bit much. That was my original point, nothing more. if someone disagrees with me on that, that is okay by me. But i can't argue a point i never made which is what i've been doing for two pages now.

---And I acknowledged earlier that York is overrated by some. I guess you're just trying to provide balance to the overhyping by being overly critical and making hyperbolic statements about how he "simply cannot play down the stretch".
