My point was that if a guy is rating Paajarvi based on his year last season, and you want to correct him based on his AHL season, fine. But don't expect that every NHL fan is going to watch all of his favorite team's Farm games during the lockout.

There's no way every Ottawa Senators fan is watching Binghamton consistently this year. Nor is every Leafs fan following the Marlies on a game-to-game basis. To pile on a guy for not being into the Barons is overkill.

If you're seriously following the AHL and want to chime in, cool. But you need to understand that there are fans out there who aren't watching it. No reason to bring attitude like that.

For instance: "Actually, Paajarvi has been quite physical so far this season in OKC, he's really grown that part of his game since last year"
... How difficult was that?
