3) He's my age. Therefore, his perspective on these issues rings far truer to me, than say, Sidney Crosby's.
4) and I hated him as a player, too, just like Beechsack. His stint with the Flyers, his Cup with the 'Canes, then, a couple years later the playoff ouster of the Sabres while a Bruin. I'll be damn happy, though, if Stafford (lost cause) or Foligno (Episode 4 A New Hope) could play Recchi's style of game.
People labeling Drew Stafford a "lost cause." Ah, hockey season must be just around the corner here at HF. If only we could have more lost causes in this organization who average 24 goals/82 games played.

But, but...he doesn't hit enough!! And hits correlate to winz!! (Wait, what's that? He led the top-9 forwards in hits last year? Oh, umm...he'd rather be playing his guitar!!!)
