You quoted three of us and you noted the polarizing comments. Maybe it’s just me but I feel like you being “amused” is a way of implying that all three opinions of Smith’s play tonight are different because of some inherent bias that affects the way we watch the game. This was the part of your point that I got, because it happens here all the time.

 

Except my quote was simply referring to that one shift of Smith’s that Hakan Andersson, Don Cherry, frank grimes, me, kip, joesuffP, and you would all unanimously agree was bad. 

 

If I’m reading too much in to this, then forgive me. But please don’t be amused at my comment because you think it’s partisan. 

 

joseffP said Smith was playing great. Kip said Smith was a knucklehead. You said Smith had a bad shift. Three different opinions on one player in one game. Maybe your comment wasn't meant to define Smith's overall play, but it was still a different opinion than the others so I included it.

 

Personally? I think Smith has regressed from the beginning of the season. But that's just my opinion.

I get your point.

I was talking specifically about one of Smith's shifts. And it was a bad one, regardless of what you think of his play overall.

 

I didn't see the game nor did I comment on Smith. I think you have me confused with joesuffP who praised Smith.

Smith has been so good lately

 

 

Brendan smith isf****** terrible. Is anyone watching this knucklehead?

 

 

Rough shift for Smith. 

 

Late to the party, I know, but I'm still amused at how differently different people watch the same game.


In Topic: Brodeur retires. Named Sr. Advisor to Blues GM

It's been about 5 years since Brett Favre retired. I remember that he held on too long, and I don't even watch football.

Chelios hung them up about 5 years ago, too. I'll never forget that he wound up splitting time between Atlanta and the Chicago Wolves during his last season, because he wasn't willing to retire when he should have.

I'm sure not every one will remember this stuff, but some will. 

The HoF committee doesn't care. Neither should we.

Guy should play for as long as someone is willing to pay him. It's his life and career. Five years after he retires, 10 years, no one will remember that he "held on too long." He'll be remembered for a brilliant career.
