In Response to Re: Avalanche Vs. Bruins Official Game Thread
Again, I can only speak for myself, but any criticism from me has absolutely nothing to do with being 'negative' or having thoughts that are 'different from other posters'. Both those things are good here, when original, and the posters in question are usually good at this. My problem is just that the argument that Brad Marchand acts like a punk, or Shawn Thornton is unskilled, are just not interesting enough to be stated over and over and over. We get it. Making that argument is no longer controversial, or even interesting. I don't know why there is this feeling that everybody here must know the opinion of Poster X on Subject Y. State it a few times and let it sink or swim. Maybe your point is interesting, maybe it isn't. Being reminded of it every day does not make it more interesting. Last night it just seemed like two posters kept applauding each other for having this particular view when it is so tired and overstated that it is moving into Kesselite territory. I happen to agree with it for the most part, but it's not like some new revelation that the masses haven't discovered yet. If Marchand does something punky next week or Thornton fumbles a pass, look out, because it will be all about the loud validation of a few posters here, and not so much about the Bruins. That said, sorry for the judgements. Post on if ye' wish.

Thats fair but what on here is really original. I talk everything hockey and take a few pokes at Thornton Marchand "et al". Some people loose their $ hit over certain games. Or the trolls will come a knocking and I love battling it out with those creatures.
I see your point but the next time Marchand or any Bruins does something great or something stupid won't it be posted.
You don't think the Torres issue is tired. Heck I mentioned it and had fun with it. As soon as he scores a GWG in the finals I have a fun little post and I pretty sure everyone jumps on me. I even stated anyone but Torres as soon as he scored it. The doom and gloom gang jumped all it saying I was a troll etc etc.
I avoid the Kessel debates for the same reason you dont like the Marchand/ST threads. All I will post though is Kessel has never scored a meaningful game and I normally won't even look at the thread again.
If you read what I posted in there it was not a post where I was jumping all over one player. I was playing with it and then everyone on the pro-Marchand stance gets their fur up. If I can avoid a Kessel thread cant you guys avoid the dead beaten horse as well. I bet if you guys look at those threads on those two that you are one of the main contributors. So why encourage my bad behavior. I am blaming it as a learned behavior and you are part of the problem.
NAS does it to get a rise and boy does it work. He is sitting back giggling. He made one quick post. And then the vultures smell blood and look out.
In closing. I was making light of the most recent posts on Brad. I still believe Thornton had much too much ice time in a 1-0 loss to one of the worst teams in hockey. I would say the same thing tomorrow if Thornton is getting as much ice as Lucic or Seguin.
So when are we all signing up for sensitivity training. I am on board. My feelings have been hurt on here for years. I think the me calling Marchand a Canadian hero at the WJHC was the icing on the cake. But I am remembered for wanting his jersey this christmas.
