Didn't I get blasted for saying Spurgeon is a depth defenseman in the off-season? That he was limited and there were concerns?

Oh yes:

He can play the puck well and I would love to have him out on the PP unit but I just see him between 4-7. A guy that doesn't get the top line minutes but a good chunk of the 2nd or even 3rd pairing minutes and some PP minutes for his offense.
Hahah...Rynryn was close:

Not so wacky now. Well, not necessarily miserable but bad.

Or this one:

- The Calder goes to... Vladimir Tarasenko. Alex Galchenyuk and Mikael Granlund are the other nominees
Here's the thing, I'm not calling anyone out on this, it's just fun to look back. And why is this in the trade page? Oh right. The post about Spurgeon.
