Old School Thread

I think it's always funny to go back and look at threads created about prospects their first few years.

Here's my favorite.


http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t...=Suter+Phaneuf

Notice how they're so quick to tell me how wrong I am and how much better Phaneuf is...

I wouldn't care if they just said they liked Phaneuf better. It's the attitude that's just so wrong, the whole "you have no idea, homer" thing.

Just a quick Moderator general warning:

I'm fine with the thread and it's premise, but...please do not cite specific posts or posters in an attempt to humiliate or demean them. Hindsight is 20/20 and we've all posted some things we would cringe at if we looked a couple years ahead into the future.

Any post calling out another member will be cited for "flaming" as per the site rules. Calling out ideas and thoughts are fine as long as they aren't discussed in a way that calls out a specific poster.

Thanks!

Haha I wanted so bad to post "So... how's this turning out for you Flames fans now?"

I especially liked the parts where they started comparing Suter to Phaneuf. Even that isn't close anymore.

It is obvious that Dion is STILL better than Shea... Dion plays on a Canadian team. Of COURSE he is better...

Did he regress or did Suter and Weber just take the shine off his star?

they are both certainly studs & he wasn't going to be top pairing here ... so I'd say he has regressed & they both progressed

He's number 1 on Vancouver and most people have them as Western Conference favorites.

Erhoff is the #1 in Vancouver, not Hamhuis.

He's the #3 on Vancouver, behind Ehrhoff and Edler.

#32 and all the replies to it are great. Hindsight is 20/20, but its just weird to see Weber called a "Mid level prospect" and a "future 4th D-man"

I think it's the main thing that has allowed us pull away from Columbus. We got our No. 1 center when he became available while the Jackets are still searching for theirs...

come on, the guy did play like a #1 for three years and really didnt fall off until last season...

I bet there are plenty of GMs who wish they had signed Arnott for 4.5 even rather than some of the guys that got 6-8 million in the early years of their deals *cough* gomezbreire *cough*

On a good team, Arnott is a number 2 center. He has been his entire career, excepting his time in Nashville. When I think "number one center," I think of guys like Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Marleau, Thornton, Backstrom, Kopitar, Staal, etc. I think Arnott was, for a time, at the high end of number 2 centers, but I don't think he would have been the number one center on most teams with the cash to afford someone better.

I'd put Vermette over Arnott, personally, but, hey, whatever helps you sleep at night.

Bingo. You might have finally landed Vermette, but you're three years behind at this point...
