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.
And you my friend are making generalizations, and just plain lying.

Justin Schultz right now = Joe Corvo (40pt defenseman with poor ES play)
Taylor Hall's hands = Brendan Morrow's

And I've never said Eberle/RNH are overrated. I feel RNH is perpetually underrated. I feel Eberle over-produced last season, but that's a different story - I still feel he's the most expendable young piece we have going forward.

I'm not being a negative nancy - I'm seeing great things from Hall/MPS/Gagner of late and have been quick to note it as well. But I'm going to call a spade a spade when I see one. Justin Schultz is not a top-4 defenseman right now. If you feel he is then you're fooling yourself.
