I guess if we throw out the numbers, we can make an argument that Kevin Westgarth is a better player than Anze Kopitar, but it doesn't make it a good argument, does it?

For the millionth time - I watch the games, too. And it's very evident that Doughty has been better this season. If you want to say he hasn't lived up to whatever expectations were set for him on the BB (30 goals? 100 points? +10000? World Peace?) that's cool. But he's still the best all-around defenseman on this team. My eyes see it, the facts say it. And do you know what the funny thing is? It's not even really that close, honestly.

... Unless you're at their homes or in the gym with them or in the locker room with them, it's just hearsay and speculation and biases and rumours. Not interested.
Will it be any more believable for you if a well respected Board member in excellent standing is also aware of what I speak:

But that is just hearsay as well. As with most trial attorneys, I imagine I could likely figure out one of the 29 or so recognized exceptions to the hearsay rule to fit that info under and make it admissible, but still as long as you weren't there it never happened.

I guess the best way to analogize your response is that if a bear ***** on your doorstep at night, and you don't see him do it, you wont step in it on the way out the door in the morning. Good luck getting your shoes cleaned.
