That is an excellent player to have on your 2nd pairing. It's basically a 1b pairing when it runs at that level of execution.
Justin Schultz = Joe Corvo
Taylor Hall = Brendan Morrow
Jordan Eberle and RNH are overrated.

Im sure there is more but it I try to avoid the obvious trolling.

But it is really almost impossible when everyone takes the bait and quotes your ridiculous comps. It probably doesnt help that you have three or four times more posts than the next closest poster in this thread, or that even after a win, you continually disparage our most promising young players.
