This thread's gotten ridiculous. When we choose to hate a player, he has no chance. He'll have to perform at an MVP level to shift the hate to someone else. 
 
What the mods here either refuse to acknowledge or don't realize is these attitudes always grow from the same few doom and gloom depression cases. And we all know who they are. We're concerned about filtering curse words but we allow obvious trolling and non-stop doomspeak stupidity? I'm less annoyed by a few four letter words than I am the trolls saying every single thing we ever do sucks in every possible way. 
 
This forum could be raised quite a few notches with the removal of a certain couple people. Let them go fester with the other idiots on RWC. 


There's a number of us wjo have been around for a lot of years here and have a lot of different opinions on a lot of our guys but just cause some of the opinions are negative doesn't mean we're trolls. It simply means we don't like that player. If you make a strong case than by all means say your piece. It's when you come in and say "Cleary's lazy and he sucks" and that's all you add to a conversation, thats trolling. When you state that he doesn't belong in the top 6 and give reasons like he doesn't have the hockey sense of legs to keep up with Dats, hes been taking stupid untimely penalties and gives the puck away excessively and most of his shots are bread basket and from the side boards, then with those comments i actually raise an argument within the topic.

As I already requested, let's stay on topic.  Posts continuing to discuss moderating policy or other topics will be deleted. 

 

If you guys want to further discuss trolling or moderators or forum policy, feel free to start a thread in the water cooler. 

 

Thanks.

 Ken Daniels tonight, "And Cleary passes that one to... no one in particular."

 

I know, I know. He scored tonight. I still don't like the way he plays the game.

This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

I know, I know. He scored twice tonight. I still don't like the way he plays the game.

 

He actually had quite a few of those tonight and dumb turnovers that just weren't commented on.  He only scored once by standing in front of the net and waiting for a good pass to tap in, but he did get an assist by being on Datsyuk's line.  Hopefully the last 2 games have marked a turnaround for him this season.

Thats right he had 2 points, not 2 goals... Though I remember thinking thats Abs was going to get credit for that tip, which would take away Cleary's assist. I guess they never changed it.

 

He did have a number of passes to "random open patches of ice"; Thats a good play in pee wee hockey, but not in the NHL.

 

And Brunner was the one that made his goal possible.... alright now I'm just bashing. (but seriously, that was all Brunner's pass :tounge: )

If Cleary can play like Homer, to some degree, and be effective on the PP, then he will make his keep, he will be falling out of grace.

It shouldn't have to be a huge novelty like it is when Cleary actually has a couple good games, but it really is. I truly hope he is not re-signed this summer. 4 points in 19 games doesn't mean "Cleary's back", it simply means he had a multiple point game to double his season total while playing 20 mins a night in the top 6 with Dats. Not sold on him.

Not really sold on Cleary either but as long as he's chipping in I can't really say much right now. Him getting some points hopefully boosts his confidence level. He needs it.

In all fairness he has 7 points but that only 1 more than Tatar and Cleary has gotten nearly triple the ice-time and has played a lot with Datsyuk

Not that I agree or disagree with his future here but why bring up point totals? We're not talking about the whole season, we're talking lately and lately he has been pretty good.

If Cleary has indeed managed to get his act together, albeit after 19 games then I have no complaints. We can't afford to have guys in the top 6 that can't produce

Since this was bumped sarcastically, it's staying locked for now. 

 

Dan Cleary discussion can take place in the thread about his signing.
