I don't think anyone expected them to be this bad (the 2 worst players on the team). But Stoll in particular is just a terrible hockey player, nothing should have or should be expected of him, he shouldn't be in the lineup, but that is for another thread I guess.
I think 60-70 points was a reasonable expectation of Mike Richards this season.
Coupled with everything else he brings. That is why he is paid so much.
These are two complete ******** arguments.
You pretty much JUSTIFY the performances of Stoll and Penner...being WELL below average and just say "meh it is what it is, everyone should have expected garbage."
and then you say Richards should play above his career average in points his first season here. (His career average is 58 points.)
I don't get it.
Stoll playing with only a quarter of his annual production, and Penner the same...is justifiable to you. But Richards playing at 2/3rds his normal output is completely unacceptable.
I've learned to respect your arguments A LOT recently Herby, you aren't always a hater. But get your head on straight, some of your arguments here are horribly biased, and not biased in a good way.
