they also said that the most famous sentence from her articles was from this years training camp (i think it was a rookie camp) when she said -" Little is not ready to make the team, he can't pass to himself of the boards" (they said it was one of the warm-up drills)
they also mentioned that it was funny to see her at the practise this year and then reading what she had to say. i was told she has seen the guys 3 !!! times on the ice ALL YEAR LONG and made an article about it. they found it hilarious, so do i, now that i think about it....
just wanted to share my opinion. no need to get upset anybody

and believe me, i'm in no way making this up!!!!
That was really mean... She obviously can't do the job of an entire scouting department, but in the absence of dependable sources of information on Thrashers prospects, getting to hear ANYTHING from someone consistently is enough to make me appreciate her and her work. If you don't like what she has to say, don't read it, but there is no need to flame her and her career. You also destroyed any validity I might have given you by showing you are sexist, which I have to assume is the source of your obvious jealousy and contempt towards Ms. Gunning.
