I don't think it's necessarily ironic, but it is kind of saddening that this is the second thread title in two days to have that same mistake. Assuming English is the OP's first language, of course. You would think HFboards was populated by a bunch of third graders. I'd hope that in actuality most people here are at least twelve.

It's a very understandable mistake to make if English isn't your first language but

worse = more unfavorable than something or someone ("Player X is worse than Player Y")
worst = the most unfavorable ("Player X is the worst player in the world")

Don't worry about it, as I said, there are people whose first language is English who are still making this mistake. It's them I worry about.

Anyways, Shane O'Brien is a sub par player in the NHL.

Thanks! Curious, I thought it would be "worse" because am labeling him as one of the worst players in the world and not the worst?

Lol - wow. Axe to grind? Did he also invest your last dollar unwisely and lead you to financial ruin? Screw over your sister? Ponzi scheme your parents and promise to take you to the prom but back out at the last minute?

Also if you could prevent him from pretending he's Savard or Orr out there someone would already do it.

And Hunwick >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>Cumiskey.
In 51 games with the Avs last year, Hunwick had 0 goals, 10 assists and was -19. Just about every time the Avs gave up a bad goal last season, Hunwick was involved somehow. This year, it's been less frequent, but he's been involved in a number of bad plays that led to goals against.

Cumiskey never lived up to his potential, but I don't remember him being that horrible.
