I also enjoy when people complain about taking Marshall over Subban.
Yeah that's an issue too. When people say stuff like, "if they Flyers would have done X they would have won a Cup in 2010." X is usually about having a goalie, but people fail to realize that if there was a different goalie there, the rest of the team may not have looked the same and they may not have gotten there.
Not to mention the argument I have made a thousang times on here about the 2010 finals is that goaltending was not the ONLY reason they didn't win that year. As easy as you can say "if we had a goalie..." I can say "if our best forwards played better (I don't know exactly what their line was, but Gagne, Richards, and Carter had like 7 points combined and were a minus 20 or something like that)..." or "if the third pairing played more than 2 minutes per game..."
