You just don't get it. Because you're part of the PC police and also because you want hockey to become the same thing as women's soccer (which is significantly tougher than Men's soccer BTW). Admit it.
Kenny says he'd like to add a top 6 forward and a top 4 dman. Beleskey and Franson are both young UFAs and fit these needs. Does Kenny give them big money and big term? Does this make sense for the long term?
Beleskey is this years overrated winger. Did well in the playoffs in a contract year, but really he's just an ok 3rd liner.
We kind have already been doing this and the results have been less than spectacular. How many seasons are we going to wait to see if these blueline prospects we have will pan out? Aside from DeKeyser, I haven't seen anybody show anything that would lead me to believe our defense will get better from within.
I honestly think a lot of guys like him are brighter than they seem. I tend to think you've got to have something going on in your brain just to figure out how to be as big of an ass as he was. He knew what he was doing, and he did it very well. I think those questioning the sincerity of the article are way off the mark.
Was going to basically say this. Obviously, he's not a dumby. He seems to understand himself and his skill set quite well. As a guy who thrived as an agitator, he understood that he was the villain, and so he did the villain thing 110%.
Now he's known as possibly the biggest hockey villain of all time, so I guess you could say he was successful in his goals.
