In response to Chowdahkid-'s comment:
Regarding Nash, am I wrong in my assertion that he's been often guilty so far of overhandling the puck? Am I wrong in saying none of the 3 penalties he took were "good" penalties? The 2 he took against Boston were both lazy plays that were 190+ feet from his own net. After awhile, you need to see results to go along with good skating from a guy that takes up more than 10% of the team's cap space. Double Cheers with an added back slap (and I'm also covering my nuts because I couldn't help noticing that you started kicking)!
Posting how great it was having Kaberle in the lineup and in the same breath diminishing how Rick Nash plays ?
Didn't think this was a possible discussion to ever have.
Alright I give. Your eyes win.
Quadruple Cheers, while scratching my head, mumbling expletives and biting my tongue.
Where did I say it was great having Kaberle? My saying you were wrong in your assertion that Corvo was a better Bruin certainly doesn't imply that I feel Kaberle was a Godsend. It means only what I said, that I think you were wrong in your evaluation of Corvo (ie. your eyes were playing tricks on you). Perhaps when you're finished putting words in my mouth you can explain in simple terms not only how Nash isn't over rated, but how he's worth every penny of his exorbitant contract so far. I'll leave you with just a simple cheers as you should be busy enough trying to turn this debate around that you won't have time to learn any new fangled high 5's.
PS. I couldn't help noticing your failure to address any of my direct questions regarding Nash's performance thus far. Perhaps you didn't notice them?
Yes I'm glad you noticed the words "great" and " gift from heaven" . It fell in line with me saying "far superior".
And yes I didn't really pay attention to your comments on Kaberle. Plain and simple. I think he's a bum. No changing my thoughts with that.
P.S. I'm getting the heck out of this discussion before you get really pissed and start with the responses others have gotten recently from you. This has happened way too much lately from where I'm sitting.
Let's just leave it as you're right and I'm wrong. I'm comfortable with that considering..........
No cheers, just have a nice day !
Wow, I feel bad that you think you could ever fall victim to me mistreating you. From my perspective, you're always too even keeled for me to even consider berating you. Your observations are duly noted. I'll just stay out of your way from now on and certainly won't badger you for answers to direct questions. I'll leave you by pointing out that you can feel free to look back at this thread and easily spot when the conversation turned from a simple debate over the prowess of Rick Nash to questioning the quality of my eyesight. Far be it for me to defend my stance. I mean, I see you couldn't even be bothered to explain how Nash is earning his salary. At least not when it's so much easier to fire a pot shot at me instead. So be it. My feelings aren't as easily hurt. I feel I work better that way.
