I find that to be utterly ridiculous.

What's more ludicrous were the posts questioning his effort and work ethic, as if he's not even trying out there. That to me is unacceptable and it's a shame that we have fans who think that way. Then again, I don't consider those types to be very observant anyhow.
Well, you are taking my 'Cheechoo' reference a bit too far....I wasn't comparing Kopitar to Cheechoo, I was implying that just because you are given a status one year, doesn't mean you automatically get to carry that for your entire career. You want an extreme example of that, Cheechoo.
