It is because earlier in the thread he said I was part of the group who thinks the earth is flat while he's part of the group who thinks the earth is round.

No surprise there.

Keep on fighting the good fight, you and Tony Marinaro can maybe get a talk show where you discuss how awful all of the GM's are at managing the cap and how YOU would do it.
Why do you always have to be so confrontational? I find it very hard to respect your arguments when I repeatedly see you mocking and/or laughing at other people's opinions.

I couldn't have agreed more, this needs to end. It's becoming harder to have a good experience here.

That's confrontational?

When people make comments that deserve to be mocked and laughed at why shouldn't we mock at them and laugh at them?

I didn't say going to arbitration was my go to position.

But you are right, this is pretty much a "earth is flat" proposition. I should be tarred and feathered, hanged or worse taken to arbitration.

I have a bigger problem with people calling other people stupid after making the most idiotic posts of all time. At that point, what else can you do but laugh at them?

I especially like when these posters make absurd comments and then make it seem like they've been ostracized by the rest of the forum.

This thread is full of comments like the one in bold above. Self pity party comments becuase they don't like the logic and reasoning people use to tell them why their viewpoint makes no sense.

It's funny and sad at the same time.

Then why not just walk away? You guys have been going at it for the past 2-3 days, repeating the same thing over and over again while calling each other stupid/ignorant/etc in between. Both "sides" have been incredibly childish imo.

I suppose what I was eventually going to get at was that whether Price has a cap hit of anywhere between 5 or 7 mil, its not really going to hurt the team in the long run. Gomez-esque contracts have the potential to do so; slightly overpaying your number one goalie doesn't.

You know, I missed you
Hold the phone, am I reading this right? Chezz making a point of disagreement with a discussion being derailed? What? Oh man, the irony.

Strong comeback post though. Stay around, it makes the board a little lighter at heart.

Wow.......... this thread has a lot of potential yet a few posters have turned it into a mud-slinging fest. Guys, please, can we keep on topic without putting other opinons down and acting childish? If you want, I can give you names for good classes on how to properly debate. I know a lot of universities offer these course.

I've always thought that this blog entry is one of the better looks at Price's talent:
