Perfect response Rob. There's a difference between "that's a bad decision" and "criticizing before the decisions been made."
But for me it's more about Sully's style. He's a great writer and more than capable of writing a well researched and insightful article, but this article has none of that. He plays it up as an article about a future star. A star I can almost gaurentee everyone in this thread has seen more of than him. Then he compares him to Mario (what?), then spends the majority of the piece talking about how Ruff will ruin him. If I wanted that crap I'd put the last 2 years of whiner line on loop. He doesn't support his thought, he doesn't defend it, There isn't anything we haven't heard from a drunk at a bar in the entire article (except the Mario part, which even drunks arent building him up that high). Anyone on this board could had written that article. Your kids could have written it. Sorry this isn't a basketball town but if you are gonna mail it in let someone else have that space. Maybe Baker could write the Grigs column so I can learn something new at least. If you want an opposing opinion fine but put something behind it. Sully is becoming the Derek Roy of TBN. Next he's gonna tweet us about how his new mechanical keyboard sets off car alarms.
The Hecht point is atrocious. Since last season ended we have asked for a third line center who is defensively competent and can play the PK, maybe chip in 10-15 goals and when needed fill in the top 6 for a game or 2. What part of Hecht doesn't that match perfectly? On top of it Hecht is a short term bandaid. He's filling a spot IF Grigs doesn't make it UNTIL Girgs can. This is a transition roster not a cup contender.
