So you're the expert, did you expertly poll this? You the expert man?

When did anybody say bust ever in this discussion?

Right, nobody did. Its a discussion on development and how much the kids are developing. Nothing more.


Heres what I'll do. I'll follow the schedule and in advance specifically point out games when the Barons will likely have more trouble with offence. I'll point this out in the gameday threads. We'll see how far off I am that the opponent team and scheme matters.

You're right, bust specifically was never thrown out there but it was certainly implied.

It's nice seeing the Barons win, I'm jacked that we have three players leading the league in scoring.

Come on guys, lay off Replacement. He's a glass half-full kind of guy. Half full of poison, but half full nonetheless

haha, one of the best "sports moments" ever IMO... "so you're an expert then?"

no, no official poll, i'm not keeping track exactly.... just pointing out that i think you're WAAAAAAY over-concerned about this, and most other people think this as well... don't stress it man, the kids are fine

No it wasn't. At all. So drop the nonsense.

In truth I like discussion. Gets a little dead here on the board this year.

Most of my negativity lately is actually emanating from The Eskimos situation and now with RR and the Argos going to the Grey Cup.

What a ****show its been being an Edmonton sports fan.

Save me.

That's fair, however just like in the NHL points count whether it's against the Cup Champ or the league chump. Now if a player only scores against the chumps that could be problematic when you enter the playoffs. The difference is that our kids have the potential to score against anyone. And they have recently done well against some of the better PK's in the league so that at least should be seen as a positive.

Look, no other team in the league can put this unit on the ice lets be clear on that.

Its no surprise we have a unit that leads the league in pts production.

What I expect is a team that is best in the league as expected.

Anyway this is going nowhere.
I said there is competition for at least the 3 or 4 spot, which you said all four spots are a dead lock for our kids. Those spots are well within striking distance.

You are right this is going nowhere, I am fine with dropping it, but I thought that is the kind of discussion you usually love and carry on for pages with. Good to see the restraint from you.

Not just this GDT, several others before it as well.

This just in. Good teams are harder to score against.

Don't give him more reason to post please.
Clearly they are and that's why it is more important for them to score. Prove they can :p

This thread seems to have run its course.

There is a general Barons discussion thread here.
