I don't want DD as my top-2 center, but I don't want Eller there either. Not yet at least.
Mitch Gallo is a nice guy and he knows his hockey pretty well. He's not a tool like Tony Marinaro, and I couldn't get behind being a jerk towards the guy.
Of course I was being a jerk. That was kind of the idea. Thanks for being so kind about it, though.
And what I said to him had little to do with Eller vs. DD, and everything to do with his method of comparison, which was sloppy at best. Then he tried to attach some language drama to it for kicks. Irresponsible and awful sports journalism like that, however, is now status quo in this city. That really pisses me off.
