Calling Halpern and Hamrlik jersey fillers is comical and showing a lack of hockey knowledge.
Agreed. Halpern is not a 'sexy' player to watch because he's fairly slow, not physical, etc. But he's one of the smarter players the Habs have had. Incredibly effective on the PK due to his faceoff and lane covering ability.

His stats last year project to 30+ points on a full season which to me, is the benchmark for a good/great bottom 6 forward.

I believe the retard is more likely to be the one writing the post I've referenced, as opposed to a Princeton graduate who is articulate, well spoken and displays a ton of smarts on the ice.
