"We said WHAT?" Bump thread

Looking back through the archives, there are some great threads where HFer's were completely wrong. Since its the off-season and we're all bored, how about posting them here for all of us to laugh at. Obviously don't target specific posters, but just in good fun, bring up discussions where "popular opinion" proved very wrong.

I'll start it with: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...d.php?t=124838

How about this gem from that thread?

Holy overrated prospects. Shea Weber at 10? That's a joke. That's why most people stray away from these things, it's impossible to keep the homers out.

First comment on that list:

Quote:
Honestly, I'm shocked by these rankings. Giroux at 21? I thought he'd be a borderline top 50 prospect and I don't see how he deserves to be ahead of someone like Brassard.

I said that MSL carried Stamkos' goal totals in previous years and that in 2012 he wouldn't be able to continue since he wouldn't be playing with him as much.

Then he goes an scores 60 goals, 40 of which MSL didn't get a point on.

Woops :p.

Defensive defenseman are a dime a dozen, I say Shea Weber will never play a full NHL season.

This one shows how delusional leafs' fans are.
(Granted, it is opinion based)

I can't find it but back when Malkin was coming into the league the quote was something like this

Quote:
There are 5-6 Malkin's in the league but only one Phaneuf

I don't disagree with it, because it is related just for nostalgic value:

Stamkos busting was a good one as well.

Sorry but even in good fun, a dedicated topic to something like this is only going to lead to posters being singled out and ridiculed for simply posting their opinion or prediction.
