Yeah, but some think you've shot your credibility. Not that it means a damn thing what they think anyway.

Besides, I'm not really suprised at the response. And I couldn't care less about Phaneuf or who is better. Phaneuf might have the flashy big hits, but Mez has a complete game. It's more subtle. Whatever...I'm happy with what we've got. (Plus, we've got Volchenkov, so we have the best of both worlds. )

Volchenkov is so awesome. If he can develop his offensive game to the point where he gets 30-35 points a year along with his hitting and defensive game he will be an absolute monster.

I can't wait for the day when everyone realizes that Meszaros is one of the best defensemen in the league. Phaneuf may be more flashy but Meszaros will be winning Norris trophys. See his offensive game developing every game now, love his end to end rushes.

And credibility means little. I don't care what some person thinks of my opinions. I know I have a good hockey mind.

Both Phaneuf and Meszaros will be perennial Norris contenders in their prime. Phaneuf is better now, but I won't be surprised if Meszaros has a better overall career.

I agree on your view of Volchenkov, my new favourite Sens blueliner. If he can develop some offence around his game, he can be an absolute monster in this league. Right now, he is a poor man's Chara (i.e. minus the fights/offence) and I couldn't be happier with his consistency. If he can only stay healthy from March to June.....

Plus a willingness to cause internal bruising.

I agree pt. 1.

I agree pt. 2. He's got good offensive instincts to go with his strong defense...always willing to pay the price physically and he always seems to get back up. Complete package through and through.

Good! I agree pt. 3.

While watching him the other night i couldnt contain myself, after a couple of end to end rushes i made that exact comment, he looks like freakin' Bobby Orr out there.

Now dont go crazy anyone, i realize he is not Bobby Orr, but as Eaves said i also see shades of Orr.

I used this comparison last year, but I find Phaneuf's game to be similar to Brian McCabe's. His two greatest strengths are his big shot and his big hits, just like McCabe. Unlike McCabe, the rest of his game is more well rounded, but alot of it is decidedly average. Big hitting hard shooting players are always given more value by fans than they actualy have.
