I really don't think it has anything to do with intelligence.

Yes, as a matter off act, I think the average HF poster has greater intelligence when it comes to the game of hockey than given credit for.

But the difference between us and the professionals, is knowledge and experience. It doesn't matter how smart we are when speculating on player movement, because the truth of the matter is, none of us really know what's going on on the inside.

For example, a poster can come on here and evaluate Bobby Ryan's game, and what he should be worth in the market, and absolutely hit the nail on the head, but they still don't have any real inside knowledge of Bobby Ryan's actual market value and exactly what offers have already been made and discussed.

HF isn't stupid, it's ignorant, and there's a big difference.
