Don't fault me for your selective memory either. I post in just about every GDT regardless of how good the team did. When the team doesn't show up at all people need to vent and there's more to comment on. Or does that not make enough sense to you?

I've admitted that this team is not good enough many times and people get on me for that on occasion, but I also comment on how great the Couturier line is and Mason is quite frequently. There's not much else going on with the team that is positive.
I'm not trying to be condescending and I'm certainly not being narcissistic, but if that's how you want to view it then that's up to you. Again, you're seeing things that aren't there, I'm saying how the comments come off, not demanding that people stop making them. If people want to lose their minds after a few bad goals then fine, that's their right, but I can also make a comment on that. Also, like I just said, there's a difference between venting and acting stupid. For the record, I wasn't even talking about your comment.

I think the main problem here is that you're not understanding what I'm saying about the difference between venting and being ridiculous. You keep talking about the need to vent and acting like I'm saying people shouldn't do that. What I should have done is specifically quote the comments that I'm talking about.

My comments about your posting history and my impression of you were more a response to your reply to my first comment and don't really have anything to do with the subject of my first comment. Either way, I shouldn't have said that, so I apologize.

I'm still thankful anytime Coburn actually uses a slapper. Watching him Carle it at the net for 48 games last season was so terrible

When Brayden was still a prospect in the Kings organization, wasn't he called the best player/prospect not in the NHL or something along those lines? Because I just don't see it.

Alright lets get this straight

We dump it in and turn it over or just give it to them for a line change because of our strong skaters.

or just have one person our team (Giroux) carry it but then lose it anyways within a second of crossing the line.

Then have the other team make a nice set of NZ passes (unheard of) and ACTUALLY CARRY it into our zone, where our first 1-2 attempts at disrupting any player at all fail. Until either a 3rd or 4th disruption happens, its iced, or get scored on.

Flyers Hockey?

Considering his contract status I'd say he's already fooled him, and the laughing occurs on his trips to the bank.

Couldn't watch the game today: was mason as bad as his stats indicate or did the defense do him no favors as per usual?

My stance at the time was "Best player not in the NHL" is a glorified was of saying "not good enough for the NHL."

Lol at Jackson and Jonesy dick riding Hartnell. I wish they had the balls to just once call this team out.

Did Jones just say Hartnell has been a consistent performer through his 900 games? WTF?!?!?

Pretty much exactly how I feel. JVR was probably the last lesson I'll ever need in regards to the NHL with being patient for your young guys to develop, but at the same time I actually thought JVR did just about everything but score when he was here while Schenn is kind of the opposite. Just kind of invisible out there and listless despite managing to get points this season somehow.

I'm also thinking similarly to Beef in that I don't want him traded short of a return that makes it necessary, but it's concerning right now.

No. Mason was really good and held them in for a long time. The Schenn deflected one goal into the net and another Bounced off Timonen's butt as he went for a block.

Much worse at live speed. Shouldn't have been a penalty.

I think Braydon does have offensive skills, he just shows them inconsistently. Luke took a large step back this season though. I never thought it was a good idea to trade for brothers from different teams. Especially for the premium haul it took to get both of them.

I agree that he isn't really playing as well as most had hoped but I think some of that has to do with his linemates. Simmonds hasn't been too good this season except for a few games and Lecavelier has been off and on. None of the players on that line are really fast or exceptionally good passers so I think it hurts them. I would really like to see him play with Giroux and Voracek for a few games just to see if it would make a difference. At the very least he has a better shot than Hartnell so I think it could help.

Yea I am. I don't have a problem with his development. He scores in bunches, goes on hot streaks for a handful of games then cools off. A lot of players do it. A lot more young players do it. This is why we can't have nice things. Every player that comes up and has consistency issues gets ripped to no end. This is typical of how young players develop.

Appreciate it, I apologize too if I ever came off too harshly, but your initial post was very aggressive and just unnecessary in general. Your second one felt like a personal assault at times.

I understand where you're getting at, but this is a team that has shown nothing to warrant being happy overall with it over this season and last season combined with each other and this is a message board so there's always going to be people saying ridiculous things. I tend to ignore them unless they're completely not in line with reality in which case it's best to talk to those specific people rather then a general statement like you did.
