Grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty. Not no grounds at all.

On a discussion forum, the burden for proof is only intensified. And things written as statements are taken as facts unless otherwise stated.

This wouldn't even be as much of a problem if you presented things you say as opinion, not facts or statements. Next time, try saying "My opinion is...".

I hope this clears this up.

So when you posted that no GM has ever been totally responsible for winning the Stanley Cup, that you presented it as a fact? As it was not proceed by "in my opinion"

Or when you made this comment

The fact that you are using the KHL, who play a totally different style and use a different scoring system, is laughable.
So I will wait while you support your fact based statement that the KHL uses a different scoring system.
