I was hoping he'd become a UFA this summer, and was disappointed when he re-signed before becoming unrestricted. You need those types of players on your team. You have to make it difficult in your own end for the other guys.
I haven't said a single time my opinion on this is logical. Sometimes I can express myself well and elaborate a point. Sometimes its more just a reaction involved. Fandom is like that. The hockey, particularly in BOA can boil over to where you just hate opponent players.

Calgary as an entire city hated Gretzky (except for the Oiler fans there) they would hate Gretzky still today decades later. It is what it is. In some cases that somebody like me detests a player is indication they were hard to play against, despised etc. I have a harder time than most switching the button to where I accept that X player is here. Can't really explain it any better than that.

In some sense detesting certain opponent players is giving in to the passion of being a fan and buying into inherent rivalry which I do freely.

Theres never any doubt who I'm cheering for in a GDT. people get surprised at that sometimes. But put me in July and I have a hard time getting excited about the club and some player moves. Unless its some big addition.
