MY point was simply to say there is no evidence that the top line is producing well based on points obtained in 1 game out of 6.

And MY point was to simply say that making sweeping generalizations / predictions after 5 games is delusional.

I agree, but it's what the original poster did. And misinterpreted the stats.

It would be like I said that Morrison is off to a horrible start, and you came back and said,"'what do you mean, he's got 5 points in 5 games', and my answer was "you can't base a great start on 5 games".

The original posdter laid the framework of 5 games being the sample size he was basing his opinion on, I didn't.

actually if he said he was off to a GREAT START a 5 game sample is acceptable because ITS THE START... the problem came when talking about the point pace of players... there is a huge difference between using 6.1% of the games to claim someone is on a certain pace and using the FIRST 5 games to say they have had a good start

perhaps the word start confuses you?

The 'bald idiot' has forgotten more about hockey than we will collectively ever know. Most of us who wrote this team off in the off-season have been proven right too though; so it's not like it was just the 'experts' who judged this team accurately.

Only an idiot would have gone into this season thinking the Flames would make the playoffs.

Pierre knows his stuff and should GM this team to glory.

Knowing stuff does not equal great leader, you need natural leadership ability for that and I can't see much of that in McGuire. He'd probably make a really good scout or be a great guy to have on the team as a consultant or something but I doubt he could step into a GM position and rebuild an organization with everyone falling into line to support him.

Before this season started, I thought the Flames would make the playoffs, I guess that makes me an idiot Pilkington? I wonder if you were chirping that loudly in the off season or if you are just calling everyone idiots now that the Flames are in such dire straits?

I dunno; I see in Pierre McGuire an infectious passion and enthusiasm for the game of hockey that's pretty much unrivaled in the hockey world. He's certainly not for everyone, but I think it'd be nothing but beneficial to have an organization that was populated with guys who shared Pierre's total love of the game. As opposed to now, where the organization has the outward appearance of not actually knowing what 'love' is.

At the very least, it would be nice to have a GM who realizes this game is now about speed, skill, and youth, none of which the Flames possess.

I don't know you so I'm not going to call you an idiot, but thinking the Flames were going to be a good team this year is pretty idiotic. I actually bet my friend $200 before the season started that Calgary wouldn't make the playoffs this year, and he quickly snapped it up thinking I'd lost my mind. Apparently I was the only one who took off the rose coloured glasses before looking at the roster.

A person can be socially awkward and still be a good GM. I would have to think Pierre would certainly be a candidate were we looking for a new GM.

Pierre is a creepy/funny guy .

I for one like McGuire as a GM candidate.... he knows the game, prospects etc well. Surely he would dump Button as first order of business.

Keyboard Warrior!!!! Whatever that means...

Didn't Pierre predict the Devils to be contenders? Who'd expect a Eastern Conference powerhouse to stink so bad. The point is, people can make predictions and be wrong or right based on chance alone. Did the prediction have merit, sure, but calling anyone an idiot because they predicted the Flames as playoff contenders is horrid. I recall Don Cherry making such a prediction... is he an idiot? I have a copy of the preseason Hockeytimes predicting the Flames as playoff contenders, but I suppose a group of professional hockey analysts and writers are idiots?
Settle down!

Calling someone an idiot is a bold statement used by idiots themselves, but calling someone wrong can be expected once in a while.
