I'm just getting tired of DNDTR draft and prospect articles that all imply that if Columbus somehow doesn't get MacKinnon that it would lead to Horrible Failure because There's Nobody Else. At All. Ever. We have enough gambling idiots out there wanting us to trade everything for MOAR PICKS without this kind of encouragement.
I think you are reading entirely too far into a 2 sentence blurb I wrote about why I think Mackinnon is a good fit in CBJ. If this was a lengthy in-depth analysis written about the CBJ rebuild, you might have a point. The fact is, all I said was Mackinnon and Murray would be a good foundation for the franchise...how you managed to take issue with that, I'm not quite sure.
