Very valid and accurate statement....

So many here are from the Playstation generation and look at statistics as if it was the end all of it all.......Not in hockey where intangibles are just as important, if not more, at times....

And yes, points aren't everything, but Plekanec is a points-aren't-everything champ anyway.

All in all, I kind of like the way the Plekanec deal compares.
As it turns out, Plek is a cap friendly contract to be sure.....

Oh my...your 24 rings must also be blocking your vision......nothing close to reality here....Everyone knows Thornton is the lead of that team.....go read SJ newspapers....see what the players are saying....inform yourself before making gross statements like that...
