Stock's defense of himself was mostly trying to transmute the discussion into something about him and Stubbs, and only ran perpendicular to the actual items that Stubbs tried to address factually (like him arguing that the idea that Prust and Subban going to dinner could any way be a legitimate challenge to his clearly stated assertion that "nobody on the bench likes Subban"), an assertion he essentially danced around throughout the call.

Stubbs is right to remove himself from the discussion as much as he has, because his intent was not to attack Stock, but to say that Stock's statements based on the information he presented on HNIC were irresponsible.

To separate people from positions is a very clear, fundamental rule of productive negotiation and debate, and Stock's attempt to repeatedly make it about the people (Stubbs/Stock) involved rather than the facts of the debate, as on TSN 690 last night, is transparent and intellectually dishonest.
