The Hockey Retard Thread

This is a thread where we can bash the hell out of players/prospects who are just not getting it done the way they should.

In particular, guys who are sent down to get their focus, or guys who appear to be sucking in the minors.

Today's Hockey Retard Award goes to Ryan Stoa.
What is with this guy? Lots of potential, but he can't get his act together.

Sigh. I had great (well not quite great) hopes for him but he appears to be deserving of the label Hockey Retard. Maybe we should put this in his mirror as a warning?

Seriously though, I thought this thread was about The_Fan.

And regarding the topic at hand, this seems like the perfect thread for an Avs board. Just one more place to be negative.

Oh I don't have him on my list--his brand of inanity is too entertaining to ignore.

I've resisted to the urge to post "don't we have this thread already?" and linking a certain someone's thread.

Duchene only has two goals his first 22 games last year, and finished with 24. Also, he has a ton of assists this year. He hasn't looked great, no, but the prospect of trading him is insane.

This over and over and over again. He's hovering right around a point per game. He's contributing. No, he's not scoring goals like most of us would like. No he really hasn't looked good for a big portion of this year. But when he finally finds his game, and he will, he's too hard of a worker and too talented not to, he's going to explode. If he can put up point per game while being pretty average, it's scary to think what he could do when he starts dominating and taking over games.

But, you see, the purpose of this thread is reverse-psychology.

Someone was discussing Stoa in another thread, and said something like, 'Someone needs to start a thread calling Stoa a hockey retard'.

Not because they really wanted to call Stoa a hockey retard, but because, in the past, it's been threads like this that seem to suddenly jump-start a player. Stewart, for example. There was a thread calling him a bust, saying he should be traded, saying he was a career AHLer . And he turned on the after-burners, and hasn't slowed down since.

Same with Porter.

THAT was the true purpose of this thread. To smack-talk Stoa, in hopes that he would suddenly turn it up a couple notches. The true intent wasn't to berate everyone we don't like, for whatever reason. That's also the reason I edited the original post -- to BOLD the part about guys in the minors that need to get refocused.

Seems it missed the mark by a country mile, though...

Nope, worked perfectly. Stoa got his first of the season tonight and LEM won 2 - 1. Stoa also had a fight, but no assist on Carmen's game-winner (SH and unassisted by Carmen), so he missed the Gordie Howe Hat Trick.

Excellent work BT!
