eller may in fact not be in the answer. but you can't just pro-rate a ****in rookie-sophomore's stats to definitavely say ANYTHING about their career. most people agree he can be a great 3rd liner and handle some 2b duties. we don't know for sure. but we at least know we can't just refer to stats. the games happens on the ice.
and stats don't lie, but anyone can manipulate virtually any stats to defend an image they want to sell. stats are only true when taking what happens on the ice, and combining them for a clear picture.
anyway i won't allow myself to type another line. i realize i'm trying to rationalize with Young Gun here...so that's hopeless but i tried.
This game is all on subban and desharnais, had they known how to hit the net we would have won. It's funny how everyone praises them when both can't score. You think Souray and Koivu would've missed those chances?
We're ruining Leblanc by having him up. This isn't the experience he needs.
I don't know man, going through the tough times might help him build character and appreciate the good times. I for one, would like to see a bunch of call ups finish the season and get some experience. I don't know how much longer I can stand watching Kaberle and co mail it in night after night. Antichambre really slagging Kaberle's lack of effort.
