yes, we know how it goes on hf, but you probably share your opinion alone if you think Russell is not deserving of playing time. You want to talk about bad defensive play, start talking about petro.

Ok it's obvious you are right. Every defenseman playing in the NHL is better than every defenseman who isn't. Fact.

Armstrong, yesterday:

Quote:
"I don't think bringing in depth right now is going to fix the areas where we're springing a leak. So it's either give up something of true value in the future for something that we think can make an immediate difference now. But even if you wanted to – we talked about it – move a core player, no one's moving core players right now, it's just not the time that that happens."
Armstrong, today:

Quote:
"I think you're always looking," Armstrong said. "The phones aren't going to stop ringing until Wednesday at 2 o'clock central time. We're always going to be listening, but we feel a lot stronger. We feel our depth is much more improved as of 3 o'clock today than it was at 3 o'clock yesterday."
okayyy ...

Either way, IMO team would do better with Cole in and Russel out. Thats what I was saying.

You guys can show your love for Russel to someone else

Who claimed that? What is that?

We were talking about whether Kris Russell has been "very unreliable" in every game you've watched this season. And you're just wrong about it, there's no way around it. You're watching games, determining Russell is "very unreliable" and being super duper wrong, so congrats.

Read your posts. Apparently by having the coaches play Russel, he's deemed worthy. That was your proof. So you claimed that.

So... congrats?

The end of that makes you seem very full of yourself

I disagree because an out of shape, recently retired Lidstrom is still better than most NHL defensemen.

eta, part 1: Not sure if you were serious or mocking P9. Either way, I stand by my comment.

eta, part 2: Why is P9 being trolled so hard these days?

I don't understand why Russell gets hate. In the beginning he was terrible, but for awhile now, he hasn't been. Just because he is small and not overly physical and doesn't put many points up, doesn't mean he is bad.

So much logic fail. I'm a Cole backer. I think he'll be a solid NHLer. Turning a notation of Russell's much-improved play into a competition of Cole vs. Russell or "love for Russell" just underscores how poor your reasoning is. It's just noticing a guy playing very well, that's all. Sometimes the logical jumps around here are just atrocious, and this is one of those times. Saying that noticing Russell has been much better is something against Cole is stupid. Saying that noticing Russell has been much better equals "love for Russell" is just stupid.

Blocks of text are annoying to read, everything gets grouped together pretty hard.

My original post was about getting Russel out of the lineup, so playing Cole over him was part of that. My post was basically the beginning of a Cole Vs. Russel.

Not sure how you thought it was going any other way. End of my argument...

Cole and Leopold> Russel and Redden.

That is all.

I'm a Cole fan, but he is by far the most inconsistent player in the history of sports. He will go from playing great and shutting the other team down and the next game he will be Gusarov bad and let everyone fly right by him.

Should just trade Russel for a conditional 7th.

You're not sure how I could have missed that your whole point was that the Leopold trade was good so that Cole could supplant Russell ... in a post that didn't mention Cole? Yeah, how could I have missed that? I mean, it's obviously a Cole vs. Russell argument right from the getgo when Cole's not mentioned and you make a nonsensical statement about Russell being "very unreliable" in every game. You have my most insincere apology on that.

I sympathize that reading is hard. When you get those complete sentences with all the words in them it can be tough.

It's like any team that is selling off their parts, the fans will be happy to see moves and get draft picks. It was good value on both ends. We have an extra 2nd anyway, so no big deal from our end. A 3rd wouldn't have got it done.

Ohh, getting offensive now. Don't worry, you insulting me over the internet doesn't hurt my feelings. Plus I know you do it a lot. You get sassy pretty easily.
