Why is it you feel like I need to justify my opinion to you? Do I ask you to justify why you are a fan of an alcoholic?.
Hey leave alcohol out of this...thats just going to far. Without our good friends Mr. Coors, Mr. McCormick, Jose Cuervo, and Mr. Busweiser I would have had alot more boring weekends and worse yet, I would have remembered them(shutter).
York-like may be a stretch until Ortmeyer scores. His defense is very good. His work ethic is very good. He has good size and uses it. He actually has a decent shot and can handle the puck pretty well. But can this guy bury the puck? If he's going to be a 'Selke'-type player, that means he'll be on the ice for a lot of minutes - and I don't care how good defensively you are, if you're on the ice for 15-17 minutes per game, you will need to score points. Can he do it? Can he score 10-15 goals in a season to Holik's right? Can he play on a top line, a la Lehtinen, and get up to 20 and be a defensive presence? Or is he topping at 5-10, which in such a case, it would be tough to give him those minutes? Of course, now's the time to see, but the coaching staff doesn't want to, I guess.
The guy just can't accept other people's opinion that Messier sucks. I don't have a problem with him saying that Hlavac sucks, but he has a problem with me saying that Hlavac played great in the last 2 games. I don't know how this weirdo can get along with people in real life.

I like the offsides play , When Kovalchuck took a slapshot at Dunham - a good 3 seconds after the whistle, Poti skated up to him , then as soon as Kovalchuck said something and pushed him away, Poti turned and skated in the opposite direction . He just exudes toughness out there...............
Gotta hand it to Poti though, twice he stopped Kovalchuk with the Poti-Pokecheck one on one in the Rangerzone. If only he'd have an ounce of aggressiveness in that game of his
I really liked what i saw from some of the guys last night. Garth Murray is gonna be a player. Tyutin was all over, but kept to his responsibilities, and Ortmeyer looked like the fastest player out there. Lots of positives, even though i was cursing them for getting more points, moving further away from the top 5 in the draft :mad:
I think some fans are making too much about the icetime the Vets are getting compared to the youngsters. I prefer to bring these guys along slowly, and at the same time they have to earn the icetime, even if they're competition is a guy like Hlavac.
