When he ripped Foote and Filatov not one of you "hate AP folks" said a word about his reporting... AP is not a saint, hell, I even called him out for saying "book it" when talking about Calvert several years ago but he's not the anti-Jacket or dope as you seem to be hell bent on promoting.
Spot freaking on.

Because, as I thought I'd clearly demonstrated with the post prior to that one, the results of that ability have been extremely poor of late. I immediately noticed something wrong when I saw the name "Savard" on Boston, and the spot-check took a little less than half an hour.

Oh, on the contrary. The trend was quite live then. I would know - I was railing against it at the time.

If it helps, it's a list of players that have scored 20 goals at least once in their career, not players that are going to score 20 goals in the next season. Savard is on the still listed on the Boston roster and I don't think he officially retired so hence his inclusion on the list.

Viqsi, you know more about individual NHL players than I do, your problem is off ice emotion... to win in the NHL one needs players than can get the job done on the ice as much or more than in the community. My 12 year old granddaughter has type one diabetes and is struggling with that but in the end even she knows what it takes to win a beach volley ball game (she is long legged and talented) .... kick some ass on the field of play.

He's also got literally every single unsigned UFA who qualifies listed, with the exceptions of Jason Arnott (G-d only knows why, he had 17 last year) and Kristian Huselius.

It's unbalanced to make our team look bad.

Poor reporting was poor. I didn't even think about it, because frankly I didn't care, but Viqsi destroyed AP's list.

Also, you mentioned AP and anti-Jacket? WTFH were you even talking about? I'm trying to remember AP and anti-Jacket talk. Can anyone else remember that? Not saying no one has accused him of that, but I don't remember it.

Robert, she's confused for the same reason I am confused. I have no idea where you were going with that little story.

I keep an entire deck of "confused cards" on hand when Bob's on a roll.

Yeah, I get that. However it really doesn't paint a realistic picture of the situation either.
