Learn to read. Also maybe try some logic games. Being concerned about a kid's attitude is not the same as proclaiming him a bust. Go look for the word bust in what I wrote. You won't find it.

Nor did I talk about "breaking scoring records" or even scoring period. The problem is that he downright isn't playing hockey. I have no problem with a kid needing time. I always tell people not to go out and say that it will take a draftee two years to crack the NHL because it usually takes longer. But this isn't about learning something he doesn't know. It's about hustling.

Another one who can't read and assumes the direct opposite of what I just said.

As I said, special events and tournaments like his first NHL playoffs and WJC, he has bursts of effort. But when it comes to the daily grind, he falls asleep.

Yes, during this calendar year, the Rangers would've had terrible depth.

Our 2, 3 and 4 lines would've looked like this:

Hagelin - Stepan - Pyatt
Rupp - Boyle - Kolarik
Asham - Halpern - Haley

Forgive me for having doubts about this team's ability to score.

And since in addition to our non-existent depth, our RDs would've been Girardi (good), Stralman (bad) and Eminger (bad), we wouldn't have been in the top-8 in the East right now.
