Wow; you're really not going to give up here, are you? Let's examine two separate comparison scenarios.
The first scenario examines, in respect to the data, the likelihood modifiers attached to the conclusions.
- I like what I see about Lashoff. We might have a good future defenseman on our hands here!
- This team is definitely a disaster! It needs to be blown up now!
Well, I know that arguing with you is a complete waste of time since your opinions are never ever wrong, so really I should give up, however I would like to point out that neither the OP or myself have said "This team is definitely a disaster! It needs to be blown up now!"
We, like many others on this board see this team as a borderline playoff team, and a team slowly in decline. And that without a major infusion of youth and talent, it is indeed going to get worse before it gets better. You insist on mocking anyone who expresses such an opinion as a hysterical chicken-licken worthy of your scorn instead of offering a constructive answer to the paper-thin defense, aging stars, unmotivated players and lack of blue-chip prospects to replace them.
