"Hags isn't a natural goal scorer"? Maybe not, but he has scored the same amount of ES goals as Daniel Sedin the past 2 seasons, he has scored 2 more than Jeff Skinner. He somehow gets that done anyway.
Not a legit 1st line? No I guess facing top competition and scoring over 75% of the goals on the ice (i.e. outscoring the opposition more than 3 to 1) isn't a legit 1st line.
Also, I just have to ask: Are you a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs organization? You seem to have remarkably similar views on hockey.
You should be a stand up comic; really. Truth is I have been attending Rangers games since 1960 and if fans around here see me as very negative(I call is objective) and a debbie downer, so be it. We are talking about the NY Rangers, far and away the worst of the original 6 franchises and the winner of one whole Stanley Cup in 73 years. Oh yeah, we also have a lousy GM who has been milking his success from 25 years ago and is stealing 5 mil+ a year from the organization.
I'm a firm believer in "put up or shut up" "****, or get off the pot.". So far, I see the fans around here and the dregs who work for the organization putting a postive spin on the team year in and year and out and, to date, the same ****ed up results!
Get my drift now? Or am I being too obtuse??
