Jot this down:

You're not in the room. So for you to say Stepan has "leadership" based on captaining a WJ team is laughable.

Stats don't ruin my argument because there's a laundry list of guys that have put up those point totals that went on to do nothing (our friend Dubinsky comes to mind, who put up over 50 points playing with Jagr; he didn't look too good last year did he). But I guess the Rangers should fire all their scouts, since watching hockey obviously means nothing and all we need are stats. Because Stepan throws up 51 points while playing with Gaborik who had a career year means he is a bonafide #2C. Sure. Fire the scouts!

Olli Jokinen had over 60 points last year. That's all you need to know about how much stats mean in the NHL. But keep throwing them at me.. please. I'm getting a good laugh in
I had a long-written rebuttal to all of this but I feel you are planted in your ways at this point and I almost feel bad. You contradict yourself left and right.

I'll remember to jot it down though.
