I know people are going to jump on this. If I can speak for him in this post, he's not talking about being actually better on the ice. He's talking about the makeup of the roster. To use yet another analogy someone mentioned earlier in this thread: he said that the teacher doesn't grade the paper until you take the test. Those of us who appreciate this summer and the makeup of the roster currently aren't grading his paper or his test. We're grading his homework.
