Like I said anything close to that. Like I think that poor dude was the reason. He played up to his potential, got the opportunity in Montreal, and that's about it.
You are so defensive that anything I say, even the most smallest thing, will have a negative impact on you. Now I understand what I was saying in the beginning was an asinine statement to you. I made such a bold statement when I said he was a nice player but not good enough for a playoff contender. What was I thinking.
I dont know if we should look forward to next season, he's getting traded or so ? I never denied to expect such a season from him again in a similar situation.
There is nothing wrong with us debating something and not agreeing. The point of a discussion is to try and get the guy on the other side to understand where you are coming from. I asked you for an explanation, and when I finally received it, I was able to show you where your argument is wrong. That is why people give supporting comments and statistics to their arguments. Otherwise, why don't we each simply say "I told you so!" and end the argument there? I am not a child, and I enjoy debating and discussing all things related to hockey. If DD is not good enough to play on the second line of a contending team, I want evidence. If you provide faulty and demonstrably wrong evidence to support your argument, how is that my fault? If you claim that DD would play less time on the 2nd line of a contender, and I show you that he actually would play the same amount of time on a contender because he played second line minutes based on the average TOI as shown in the NHL, how is it my fault that you were wrong?
Nothing you have said has had a negative impact on me. I am just reading what you write and countering what you state with facts. When you state that DD didn't lead the Habs to anything last year, it sounds an awful lot like you are saying he was a big reason why they didn't get anywhere. If you are not putting the lion's share of the blame on him, why make such an obvious statement? Nobody on the Habs led the team anywhere last year. Does that mean Price would be a back-up goalie on any playoff contending team? Does it mean that Subban would only be a third pairing defenceman on a playoff contending team? The answers are both "no", and the questions themselves are silly. It is the same with the statement that DD didn't lead the Habs anywhere last year.
Try to keep up, please.
We agree that DD is a good player. Since you are unable to keep up your end of the other aspects of the argument, why don't we just agree to disagree on whether he would be a 2nd or 1st line center on a contending team since you get so offended when proven wrong...
