you didn't argue a single thing in his post. you dismissed it without addressing the main points. you pointed out something practically irrelevant and went on like there was nothing valid in the rest of it. you were saying something about logical fallacies, i think you just did one yourself.

since i'm here, i'd just like to say that i wouldn't trade for eberle because his value is too high. i would also not trade cowen because i think he brings something we need and would be hard to replace. i also believe that cowen has #1 potential. paying what it would take to please edmonton fans, or even the more realistic demands their gm would make it not worth it for us. if we want to acquire someone, we should go after a cheaper option. perhaps someone older, less talented, or both.
